Monkey Man by David Byrne

Back from the war

Covered in red white and blue

So here I am

But I got nowhere to go


Heaven help you now

Heaven help you now


Monkey man

This is not garden of eden

Take a look

Who will eat and who gets eaten?


Saturday night

I'm gettin' outa my head

Who's laughin' now

You should be runnin' my friend

Heaven help us now

Heaven help us now


Monkey man

D.n.a. and evolution

Slide on down

Say goodbye civilization


A hundred miles an hour in my mind

And there you go

Outa control into the promised land

And down we go


Monkey man

Are we just some weird mutation?

Oh my mind!

Lead me not into temptation


Like a snake

I will strike without a warnin'

Holy cow

Someone pinch me am I dreamin'?


Monkey man

Let's get back to where we started

Slide on down

Evolution's goin' backwards
