The Manhattan Transfer The Night That Monk Returned to Heaven Lyrics
The night that Monk returned to heaven
Climbed every step and stood on seven
He hummed "Epistrophy"
The light of angels shone above him
They mentioned God would surely love him...
To play "My dear, Ruby"
Sat down and played a chorus
And God said, "Monk...the door is open to my house
