Sock MONKEY
Rules !

The little fella
first gained popularity
in the
Midwestern region
of the U.S.
made from
"Red Heel" socks
It was the sock that America wore
to work
compliments of Rockford, Illinois
A symbol of working class families
just tryin'
to make a livin'
just tryin' to make ends meet
didn't need no shiny doll
didn't need Barbie's disco gear
just want to hold my sock monkey
just wanted to hold my sock monkey
'til my daddy comes
Daddy wore those red heeled socks
every day when he went to work

I'm want to hold my sock monkey
'til Daddy comes through that door
and opens up his arms
to envelope me
sock monkey
can fly !
can slew dragons !
can out shoot'em !
and out dance'em !
sock monkey
makes everything all right
sock monkey
takes care of me
ruby red lips
long, black eyelashes
loving smile
true heart
just want to hold my sock monkey
'til Daddy comes through that door
gonna hold my sock monkey
'til Daddy comes through that door
Just a working class girl
who can't afford a shiny doll
but i'm just as happy
holding my sock monkey
'til Daddy comes through that door
'cause he gets me through the night
'cause he makes everything all right
