Monkey Man

David Byrne

Back from the war

Covered in red, white & blue

So here I am

But I got nowhere to go

Heaven help you now

Heaven help you now

Monkey man

Life is more than just survivin'

Take a look

Is there anybody drivin'?

Saturday night

I'm gettin outa my head

Who's laughin' now

You should be runnin' my friend

Heaven help us now

Heaven help us now

Monkey man

D.N.A. and evolution

Slide on down

Let's get back to the beginning

Driving with my whiskey in my hand

And there you go ? what's goin' on

Outa control into the promised land

And down we go

Monkey man

Are we just some weird mutation?

Oh, my mind!

Someone pinch me, am I dreamin'?

Like a snake

I will strike without a warnin'

Monkey man

Let's get back to where we started

Slide on down

Evolution's goin' backwards
