I'm supposed to be draggin' my foot
Out your motherfuckin' ass

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back

You know it ain't for us
You know they thank we dangerous
Even with no thangs to bust
They wanna keep puttin' chains to us

That's why I constantly sang and cuss
And when I bring it, it's a gang of fuss
They tryin' to send us out to bang for bucks
They must be off of that Angeldust, so check it out

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back

I'm an instigator
Mashin' out or in the scraper
And you can listen at me now or later
But stop givin' them pimps your paper

Used to be caught up in them capers
Havin' to hustle, rustle up my status
They beat my yellow ass purple like the Lakers
More like the Clippers 'cause they tryin' to fade us, now holla wit me

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back

Aight we finally gots new momentum
Let's fill the fridge up in the kitchen
It's lotsa pots for cookin' D-boy chicken
But we still ain't got one to piss in

They say I'm always fittin' the description
Of sellin' unprescribed prescriptions
But it's them with the green addiction
Think we gon' have to shake 'em off and keep dippin', so sing along

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey, get that monkey
Get that monkey off your back

Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back
Get that monkey off your back, boy
Get that monkey off your back, girl
Get that monkey off your back

Get your foot off my neck
Get your foot off my neck
Get your foot off my neck
Get your foot off my neck
