Kinks, The - Too Much Monkey Business Lyrics



Running to and fro, hard working at the mill,
Never failed at the mill, there come a rotten bill.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Salesman talkin¹ to me tryin¹ to run me up a creek,
Says you can buy it, go on try it, you can pay me next week.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Blonde hair, good-looking, trying to get into get me married
Get a home, settle down by the book.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Same thing every day, getting up, going to school,
No need for me complaining, my objection¹s overruled.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.
Oh!

Pay-phone, something¹s wrong, dime gone, will mail,
Oughta sue the operator for telling me a tale.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Been to Yokohama, baby, fighting in the war,
Army bunk, army chow, army clothes, army car.
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business,
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Working in the filling station, too many checks,
Wipe the windows, check the oil, check the tires, dollar gas?
Too much monkey business, too much monkey business
Too much monkey business for me to be involved with you.

Kinks, The Too Much Monkey Business Comments
  1. Paul D

    Beatles did this as well, though it was not released until they put out the Anthology album in the 1990s

  2. Joseph Nania

    I CAN NEVER GET TOO MUCH OF THIS - GREAT TO HEAR THE KINKS ANYTIME - ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT

  3. Joe Division

    I am the good looking Mr.Too Much for her - and she was the Monkey, hey !

  4. Jim Hall

    This was NOT written by Ray Davies (great though he is). It was written by Chuck Berry!

  5. tunefultony johnson

    This is actually a Chuck Berry song but this Kinks version is probably my favourite, and The Yardbirds did a pretty good job of it as well....

    strangersound

    The Hollies rock it, too. :)

  6. Michael Platter

    The Kinks are the Kings

  7. Roar of 64

    Actually this song was written by Chuck Berry, one of the two Berry selections from The Kinks 1st LP. This album is a classic!
