Verse 1: (guitar continues as per intro)

	There's a place right across town, whenever you're ready
	Where people gather 'round, whenever they're ready
	              Dm      Am      Gm
	And then the music begins to play
	     Dm      Am          Gm
	You feel a groove comin' on its way


	        Gm              Am
	Are you ready (are you ready)
	               Bb                   C
	Well, you get yours, cause-a I got mine
	For the Monkey Time (Monkey Time)

[repeat intro]
	(Monkey Time)

Verse 2:

	Now the dance that the people do, I don't know how it started
	All I know is that when the beat brings a feel
	It's so hard to get parted
	And then the music begins to play
	Automatically you're on your way

[Repeat chorus]


	(F)                  Dm      C       F
	Do the Monkey, yeah (do the Monkey Time)

	Do the Monkey, yeah (do the Monkey Time)

	               Dm    Am         Dm
	Ah-twist them hips (twist them hips)
	          Am       Dm             Am       Dm
	Let your backbone slip (let your backbone slip)
	     Am        Dm    Am        Dm
	Now move your feet (move your feet)
	    Am      Dm       Am      Dm    Am
