[CHORUS]
Dm            G      
Why can't you do it?
    Dm                 G
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Dm              G
Always giving into it 
       Dm                  G
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?
Dm            G
Why can't you do it?
    Dm           G                    Dm
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey? (monkey)
       G               Dm    G
With a monkey (monkey) ay ay aa, la la


[VERSE]
      Dm       F     
Oh, I count to ten 
      G
But I don't know how and I don't know when
    Dm           F  G  
To open my eyes
       Dm      F    
If you kiss me again 
         G                                     Dm  F  G
Like you did just now, like you did just then

Do it again!


[BRIDGE] 
Em           A     
I've had the rest, 
         Em             A
Now it's time I had the best,
       Em               A           Em     A
So you tell me that you won't do anymore
          Em                 A      
Well, I'd write your heart a letter, 
      Em                A
But I think you know me better,
     Em              A     
If I keep on asking, baby, 
      Em                A
Maybe I'll get what I'm asking for.


[CHORUS]
Dm            G      
Why can't you do it?
    Dm                 G
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Dm              G
Always giving into it 
       Dm                  G
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?
Dm            G
Why can't you do it?
    Dm           G                    Dm
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey? (monkey)
       G               Dm    G
With a monkey (monkey) ay ay aa, la la


[TRANSITION]
Dm  F  G (4x)


[VERSE]
      Dm        F        
Oh, I hate your friends, 
      G
But I don't know how and I don't know when
    Dm             F  G
To open your eyes.
         Dm            F   
Yes, the monkey's back again, 
       G
Do you want him now like you did back then? 


[TRANSITION]
Dm  F  G
          Do it again !


[BRIDGE] 
Em         A     
I tried my best, 
         Em             A
But your head is such a mess,
     Em                 A           Em     A
So I guess that I don't want you anymore.
          Em           A         
Well, you say you care about me, 
         Em                A
That you just can't do without me,
        Em               A     
But you keep on dancing, baby, 
          Em             A
‘Til that monkey has you on the floor.


[CHORUS]
Dm            G      
Why can't you do it?
    Dm                 G
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Dm              G
Always giving into it 
       Dm                  G
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?
Dm            G
Why can't you do it?
    Dm           G                    Dm
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey? (monkey)

Don't look now, there's a monkey on you!
       Em               G           A     Em  G  A
So you tell me that you won't do anymore
     Em              G           A
