Monkey House

Album: Bridge of Spies (1987)
  • 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!
