Mickey's Monkey Lyrics

by Smokey Robinson

All right, is everybody ready?
(Yeah, yeah, it's okay)
All right now, here we go
A one, a two, a one, two, three

Lum dee lum dee laa
(Lum dee lum dee laa)
Lum dee lum dee laa
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

Ohh, all right, yeah

This cat named Mickey came from out of town, yeah
He was spreading new dance all around
In just a matter of a few days, yeah
This dance became the new teen age craze

When the people see him dancing, they begin to sing
(Lum dee lum dee laa)
Can't you see this cat do that Monkey thing?
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

It's really something to see
(Lum dee lum dee laa)
This cat named Mickey doing that Monkey
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

C'mon, let's do the Mickey's Monkey, children
(Let's do the Mickey's Monkey, children)
Yeah, let's do the Mickey's Monkey, children
(Let's do the Mickey's Monkey, children)

Lum dee lum dee laa

Ohh, lum dee lum de laa
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

Lum dee lum dee laa
(Lum dee lum dee laa)
Lum dee lum dee laa
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

Ohh, Monkey see, Monkey do
(Lum dee lum dee laa)
C'mon, you can do the Monkey too
(Lum dee lum dee laa)

C'mon we're doing Mickey's Monkey, children
(We're doing Mickey's Monkey, children)
Yeah, we're doing Mickey's Monkey, children
