Elvis Presley Too Much Monkey Business Lyrics

Last updated: 11/15/2007 10:00:00 AM

(Words & music by Chuck Berry)
Salesman talking to me tried to run me up a creek
Says you can buy it, go on try it, you can pay me next week
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

Blonde haired, good lookin' tryin' to get me hooked
Wants me to marry, settle down and get a home and and write a book
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

Pay phone, somethin' wrong, dial gone,
Well me ought to sue the operator for tellin' me a tale
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho ...... Oh-ho-ho

Been to Vietnam, been a fightin' in the war
Army bar, army chow, army clothes, army car
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

Workin' in the fillin' station, too many tasks
Wipe the windo', check the tires, check the oil, dollar gas
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho

Blonde haired, good lookin' tryin' to get me hooked
Wants me to marry, get a home, settle down and and write a book
Uh-uh, too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in
Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho, too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho
Too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho too much monkey business, Oh-ho-ho

CAN´T TEACH AN OLD MONKEY NEW TRICKS | Reviewer: JOSE COTON | 11/13/2007

Included in one of the RCA Camden label, this is one of the obscure Elvis songs. It is a great Chuck Berry composition where he shows that he was a master on lyrics and Elvis does a great version of the song. Later, after his dead, Felton Jarvis, produced the Elvis´Guitar Man album where he got a few Elvis recordings, took out the old music tracks, leaving just Elvis voice and added a fresh one,and more modern arrangement, and Too Much Monkey Business was one of the songs, but somehow, I still like the old version better.(Recently, the song appeared on an Elvis album for the FTD label with the same title of this song)
