Monkey Man
The Rolling Stones Lyrics

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey
And all my friends are junkies
That's not really true

I'm a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
What you do?

But I've been bit and I've been tossed around
By every she-rat in this town
Have you babe?

But I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through

Yeah, I'm a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don't you?

Well I hope we're not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
But we love to play the blues

But well I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too
Monkey woman too babe

I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey
Monkey, monkey

I'm a monkey

I hope to God Jagger you get well enough the sing one more song and shine a light for us all as a teardrop drop straight out of my eye

I was in the rolling Stones firstbancorp I have you passports and make copies of your original passport the first time you came to the US I have Bill Wyman he wouldn't put his name on this the old fart
He is age I mean what's Bill Wyman doing raising kangaroos
can quit the greatest rock and roll band in the world he must felt like usually end up in a swimming pool
And get butterflies flies and Asbury Park
The hell you say my
Coming down again where are all my friends coming down again
You taught us we are your children
Coming down again where are all our friends coming down again
the greatest rift ever in Rock and roll history gimme shelter Keith Richards there is nothing greater that rift is rock and roll it's just it's just a shot away it's just a shot away brothers and sisters
Coming down again well my friend riding on the back of wild horses
This is the best way I know how to tell you I love you boys it got nothing wrong we are what we are we are the 60 seventies eighties nineties the 2000 we are.....

.,.2000 light years ...from.....( OUR ) home... You guys made me feel closer a lot closer to home

We all need to look inward, take a hard look at ourselves and decide what kind of world we want to leave Keith Richards. ;)

@T.j Saul ~ That was what he was saying. What kind of world are we going to leave him. Get it? Try and keep up.
