"A Monkey For Sallie"

[ from the album "Forbidden Software Timemachine" (2003) ]

Lyrics

I bought a monkey for Sallie
And let it run amok
I bought a monkey for Sallie
It listens to hard rock
It gobbles up our food
Messily
Scribbles on the walls
And especially
Plays with itself
From dawn to dusk
From dusk to the crack of dawn
I bought a monkey for Sallie
Wicked as the day is long

I bought a monkey for Sallie
And let it run amok
It jumps into our bed at night
And fiddles with my cock
Its tail is long and feathery
It swings from the lights
Drinks heavily
And plays with itself
From dawn to dusk
From dusk to the crack of dawn
I bought a monkey for Sallie
Wicked as the day is long

I bought a monkey for Sallie
It's messing up our lives
It plays the barrel organ
And sharpens kitchen knives
I've never seen such lively curiosity
The way it paws at Sallie
And invariably
Plays with itself
From dawn to dusk
From dusk to the crack of dawn
I bought a monkey for Sallie
Wicked as the day is long
