George Michael Monkey Lyrics

Last updated: 04/25/2010 11:00:00 AM

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it -
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
monkey
With a monkey
monkey
lalala

Oh, I count to ten
But I don't know how and I don't know when
To open my eyes
If you kiss me again
Like you did just now, like you did just then
Do it again
I've had the rest
Now it's time I had the best
So you tell me that you won't do anymore

Well I'd write your heart a letter
But I think you know me better
If I keep on askin' baby, maybe
I'll get what I'm askin' for

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving in to it -
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
monkey
with a monkey
monkey
lalalalala

Oh I hate your friends
But I don't know how and I don't know when
To open your eyes
Yes the monkey's back again
Do it again
Do you want him now like you did back then?
Do it again
I tried my best
But your head is such a mess
So I guess that I don't want you anymore

Well you say you care about me
That you just can't do without me
But you keep on dancin' baby
'Til that monkey has you on the floor

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
monkey
with a monkey
monkey
lalalalalalala

Don't look now
There's a monkey on your back
Don't look now
There's a monkey on you...
Don't look now
There's a monkey on your back
Don't look now
There's a monkey on you...

So you tell me that you won't do anymore

If I keep on askin' baby, maybe
I'll get what I'm askin' for

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
monkey
with a monkey
monkey
lalalalalalala

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love the monkey or do you love me? (oh)
Why can't you do it
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
monkey
with a monkey
monkey
lalalalalalala

Medieval Manifold Theme | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/24/10

In my imaginative interpretation, the artist is expressing a morality tale that he was personally confronted with. The "Monkey" he strongly and with agency sings about is his object of affections drug problem and the Teutonic looking Svengali who has her perhaps; dancing at a hall or such other tawdry place. Both Yog and she must have fallen in love at first glance. But she did not know who he was until they were approached by papparazzi upon their exit which was pure and eternal. When she realized he was the god from wham she waited for the fiaso of fame to dissolve into fantasy while he talked to a family member next door. What followed was perfection until daylight. How can a person with X amount of skelotons in her closet associate with the most famous pop star in the world. She had to withdraw her unrequited love to the chain-mail stealing ex boyfriend. Otherwise Yog would have found out about her shameful mistake several years earlier and it would have perhaps cost him pride. So she had to temporarily hurt his pride to respect their love forever in their hearts and know that one perfect moment of perfect love and affection is worth a lifetime of deadly heartbreak for decades. She loved him. That's a story, right?
