Mama´s Working Nine to Five

Mama´s working nine to five
to keep her aging body alive
Papa´s cooking up a sturdy stew
by tonight he´ll have it ready for you

Monkey see, monkey do
You like me, I like yo
Shaba daba dee Shaba daba doo
Impersonate yourself
Impersonate yourself
Impersonate yourself
Impersonate yourself

All kids want their share of fun
lining up for Number One
Share what you like, like what you share
Too daft to be real, too busy to care

Monkey see, monkey do...

Daddy´s drinking eight to four
Mama´s shut the bedroom door
Everybody´s got a screen to watch
everybody´s got a sweaty crotch

Monkey see, monkey do....

When you feel like yesterday´s papers
when no-one cares for your news
Put on a show for the gapers
Throw ‘em a cake and let them eat it, too

Do your trick to get your treat
Licking juice in the midnight heat
Go viral with your guts spilled out
Stick a flower in your puppy´s snout

Monkey see, monkey do....

Oh my God, I feel so out of place
living among the human race
