You know I got a letter from a friend of mine
In Newcastle-Upon-a'Tyne the other day
He said to me "Eric I heard you've been havin' some trouble
down in the smoke with the girls"
He said "You wanna catch that flyin' Scotsman
back up here to Newcastle,
'Cause we've got enough females to go around up here
And I can figure you can find yourself a little somethin'
And because people around here
don't go away stealin' each others loved ones away from one another,
Like they do down there in the smoke"
He also said in the letter that, ah,

Things don't happen like that here on Tyne
And I believed every word he said, now
Things don't happen like that here on Tyne
One more thing he told me now
Things don't happen like that here on Tyne
He said to me babe
Things don't happen like that here on Tyne
He said, all right, all right
So I'm sayin' to you who are listen'
If you've been unlucky in love
And you've lost somebody love
And you hear a voice that comes to you in the middle of the night and says
It says I want you to get on up
Listen to me,
I want you to get on up and find yourself another one
If your havin' breakfast one morning and out from behind the teapot a little voice says,
Listen, Hey! I want you to get on up now
If your out in the mornin' on your job
and a voice come to you on your job and says,
Get up! Get Up!
And you know its not the foreman
Its a little voice that says
You wanna get up and walk ...(?) women
Go on and find yourself somebody
That's what you'd better do.
Because I'll tell you one thing
There's one thing I found out
One thing I found out
Took me a long time to find it out
Yeahit took me a long time to find out
But I,.think I got it now
Oh yeah.
One monkey don't stop no show
Yes, its true baby
One monkey don't stop no show
Don't let one monkey stop up your show
One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
