monkey on my back

copyright2007o'connell/powell

 

beer's warm

he's cool and calm

dressed for a killin'

down on the farm

one eye choosin' a life for losin'

the other one fixed on mine

the knife goes deep and sure

as it's done so many crimes before

blood a shot of hiss and gurgle

snakin' across the sand

through the land of the lizard clan

 

got a monkey on my back

dressed like a pope

his daddy too

they crack me up

got a monkey on my back

hands ‘round my throat

they won't let go

they saddle me up again

 

nailed to a southern cross

thumpin' the table

i'd better call him the boss

the beauty in that beast of bourbon

hasn't quite struck me yet

no it hasn't quite struck me yet

 

got a monkey on my back

dressed like a pope

his daddy too

they crack me up

got a monkey on my back

hands ‘round my throat

they won't let go

they saddle me up again

 

saddle me up with a monkey

saddle me up with a monkey
