Song Lyrics #13 - Shock the Monkey

by - August 25, 2019


This week I'm looking at Shock the Monkey by Peter Gabriel. This song is a trip, and I admit I have no idea what it's about! Even reading over the lyrics, I'm clueless. But... it's a catchy tune and I love the beat.     

So what do you think?   



Lyrics

Cover me when I run  
Cover me through the fire 
Something knocked me out the trees 
Now I'm on my knees 
Cover me, darling please, hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

Fox the fox
Rat the rat
You can ape the ape 
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of 
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey, hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey, hey, hey
Shock the monkey, hey yeah

Monkey wheels keep turning
Monkey Something's burning 
Monkey Don't like it but I guess I'm learning
Shock, shock, shock
Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Cover me when I sleep 
Cover me when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine 
Make the monkey blind 
Cover me, darling please, hey

Monkey Too much at stake 
Monkey Ground beneath me shake 
Monkey And the news is breaking 
Shock, shock, shock
Watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey 
Shock the monkey to life 

Shock the monkey to life 
Shock the monkey

Shock the monkey to life 
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey

Shock the monkey to life
