In the healthy, wealthy state of Mental Hygiene We will teach you how to think a clean way There'll be no more dirty looks And no more dirty books Now for your own good, we will take the choice away There is a limit in the state of Mental Hygiene To the difference of opinion we can allow, oh yeah Now we must close an open mind If it's open to a different kind Well, how can you hurt us if we:
Clean up in the Monkey House tonight Oh yeah, you're gonna be alright We clean up in the Monkey House, house tonight
Now we can make or break your mind With Mental Hygiene And you will see things in the way we think you should Oh yeah In the quiet of the night The first cut is the deepest in the fight How can you blame us if we:
Clean up in the Monkey House tonight Oh yeah, you're gonna be alright We clean up in the Monkey House We're gonna take you We're gonna wash you whiter than white In the Monkey House Oh yeah!
Woh, ooh, ooh, ooh, woh, ooh, ooh, woh In the quiet of the night You can hear your own heart beating In the quiet of the night We'll take your breath away Now you're gonna listen to the things we say We gotta:
Clean up in the Monkey House tonight Oh yeah, you're gonna be alright We clean up in the Monkey House We're gonna take you We're gonna wash you whiter than white In the Monkey House tonight Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha yeah! We clean up in the Monkey House

"Whole Lotta Love" was Led Zeppelin's only US Top 10 hit, charting at #4. Many of their songs, including "Stairway To Heaven," were not released as singles, as it was considered bad form in England to make people pay for singles that were on albums.
John Lennon's lead guitar work on Yoko Ono's "Walking On Thin Ice" proved to be his final creative act. It was upon their return home after completing laying down the track that Lennon was murdered by Mark David Chapman.
The Naughty by Nature hit "O.P.P." doesn't have any curse words, but many oversensitive radio stations played a "clean" version with the word "kitten" edited out, surely the first time that word was censured.
