Its delicious the way you're walking
Go easy on your toes
There's a million and one different dances
Who do you know that knows

There's a monkey in the family
It was trained by Adam and Eve
It was sold to your great-great-granddad and grandma
And decided it wouldn't leave

I had to make the grass more greener
I had to make the sky more blue
I had to put a stop to the Jungle Jive team
So they don't do the dance with you

When you grow up you'll moon stomp mi lady
To moon stomp is in your blood
You'll have to make a keen decision
But you'll know everything about love

There's a monkey in the family
Swings from tree to tree
It never stops to see how you're doing
It just has time to feed

I had to make the grass more greener
I had to make the sky more blue
I had to put a stop to the Jungle Jive team
So they don't do the dance on you

There's a monkey in the family
It was trained by Adam and eve
It was sold to your great-great-granddad and grandma
And decided it wouldn't leave

I had to make the grass more greener
I had to make the sky more blue
I had to put a stop to the Jungle Jive team
So they don't do the dance with you

It's delightful the way you're walking
Be steady on those feet
Stay away from the Peppermint Twist
Where the Humpty Humpers meet

There's a monkey in the family
It was trained by Adam and Eve
It was sold to your great-great-granddad and grandma
And decided it wouldn't leave

I had to make the grass more greener
I had to make the sky more blue
I had to put a stop to the Jungle Jive team
So they don't do the dance with you

There's a monkey in the family
There's a monkey in the family
There's a monkey in the family
