TOO MUCH MONKEY BUSINESS
(Chuck Berry)
CHUCK BERRY (Chess 1635, 1956)

Runnin' to-and-fro - hard workin' at the mill
Never fail in the mail - yet, 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, go on an' try it - 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

Pay-phone - something wrong - dime gone - will mail
I oughta sue the operative 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, ahh
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 - a dollar gas
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Don't want your botheration, get away, leave me be

Too much monkey business for me!
