  • Song Lyrics:
    Runnin' to-and-fro - hard workin' at the mill.
    Never fail in the mail - yeah, come a rotten bill!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Salesman talkin' to me - tryin' to run me up a creek.
    Says you can buy now, gone try - you can pay me next week, ahh!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Blond have good looks - tryin' to get me hooked.
    Want me to marry - get a home - settle down - write a book!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Same thing every day - gettin' up, goin' to school.
    No need for me to complain - my objection's overruled, ahh!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Take home - something wrong - dime gone - will hold
    Order suit - hoppered up for telling me a tale - ahh!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Been to Yokohama - been fightin' in the war.
    Army bunk - Army chow - Army clothes - Army car, aah!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

    Workin' in the fillin' station - too many tasks.
    Wipe the windows - check the tires - check the oil - dollar gas!
    Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
    Don't want your botheration, get away, leave me!

    TOO MUCH MONKEY BUSINESS FOR ME!!
    (I B Emerson)
