Shock The Monkey Lyrics

by Peter Gabriel

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please hey,hey,hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna shock the monkey
Hey, hey

Fox to fox
Rat of rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There was one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Hey,hey,hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna shock the monkey
Hey,hey shock the monkey
Hey,hey,hey,yaah
Monkey

Wheels keep turning
Monkeeey
Something's burning
Monkey
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning
Shock
Shock

Shock! Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey
Shock
Shock
Shock! Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please
Hey,hey,hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna shock the monkey
Hey,hey
Shock the monkey
Hey,hey,hey,yaah
Monkey

Too much at stake
Monkeeey
Ground beneath me shake
Monkey
And the news is breaking
Shock
Shock

Shock! Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey
Shock
Shock
Shock
Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Hey,hey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life
