Intro: ( Em  G Em A Em ) x3  Em  A D  ( Em  G Em A Em ) x3  A

        Em      G   Em G Em A Em            Em      G   Em  G Em A Em
Let me tell you a story,         about two kids in the city
          Em       G  Em           D            A           Em  G Em D A
See they both have a problem with life, and it isn't very pretty
           Em     G   Em  G Em A Em            Em      G  Em  G Em A Em
There's a kid called Timmy,         he used to be pretty witty
          Em    G  Em           D              A                 Em   G Em D A
But then too many rides on the horse, got him hooked and it's a pity

                      Em                 D            A
Cause now he's got a monkey, he's got a monkey can't fight it
 Em             D             A
Monkey, on his back he can't deny it
 Em                  A                                      D                    A
Monkey, he found a dragon that bites, a hole in his arm at night (where all the money goes)
 Em      G     D       Em D  A     Em      G     D       A    NC
Monkey, monkey on his back, dirty monkey, monkey on his back, a dirty monkey

Interlude: ( Em  G Em A Em ) x3  Em  A D  ( Em  G Em A Em ) x3  A

                Em      G   Em  G Em A Em                Em        G   Em  G Em A Em
Well there's a girl called Sally,        she walks the streets in the city
           Em      G   Em           D                A          Em  G Em D A
She works down on the corner every night, gives her money up to Willy
            Em      G  Em  G Em A Em              Em           G   Em  G Em A Em
You see her man's Big Willy,          and when he met her she was pretty
        Em      G  Em         D          A                  Em   G Em D A
But he gave her a habit that she didn't want, now that's a pity

                       Em                  D            A
Cause now she's got a monkey, she's got a monkey can't fight it
 Em                  D                   A
Monkey, she's gotta walk the streets to buy it
 Em                   A                                      D                    A
Monkey, she found a dragon that bites, a hole in her arm at night (where all the money goes)
 Em      G     D       Em D  A     Em      G     D       A    NC
Monkey, monkey on her back, dirty monkey, monkey on her back, a dirty monkey

Solo/sounds: Em   ( Em  D A D A G Em ) x2

Bridge:  E  F# G G# A A# B D  E A A# B C B E

          Em        G Em G Em A Em                  Em       G   Em  G Em A Em
Well now listen everybody,         cause there's a moral to the story
  Em      G   Em            D               A                 Em  G Em D A
Clean up your act, get the monkey off your back, or you'll be sorry
 Em       G     Em G Em A Em          Em        G   Em  G Em A Em
Keep yourself clean,        cause the monkey plays mean
             Em        G   Em 
He'll put a knife in your back
          A                                             D                 A               
Then the man in the black, will show you a dragon that bites (and you'll wind up with a)
 Em      G     D       Em D A       Em      G     D        A
Monkey, monkey on your back, dirty monkey, monkey on your back
