thats it. theres loads of little lead brakes played over this, but i cant be assed to
work them out, so work um out yourself.
the lyrics are:

This one's for the bouncers. Big, big Monkey Man 

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man 
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man 

I never saw you, I only heard of you 
huggin up the big monkey man 
I never saw you, I only heard of you 
huggin up the big monkey man 

It's no lie, it's no lie 
Them a tell me, you huggin up the big monkey man 
It's no lie, it's no lie 
Them a tell me, you huggin up the big monkey man 

Now I know that, now I understand 
You're turning a monkey on me 
Now I know that, now I understand 
You're turning a monkey on me 

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man 
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man 

I was on my way to Banbury Cross, 
Then I see a monkey upon a white horse 
With rings on he fingers, bells on him toes 
Sing a little song, wherever he be 
'Cos he's a monkey, 'cos he's a monkey 
'Cos he's a weedy little monkey man 

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man 
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye 
Tell you baby, you huggin up the big monkey man
