Marilyn Manson - My Monkey Lyrics




I had a little monkey
I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo-choo, knocked my monkey coo-coo
And now my monkey's dead
At least he looks that way
But then again don't we all

What I make is what I am, I can't be forever

I had a little monkey
I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo-choo and knocked my monkey coo-coo
And now my monkey's dead
Poor little monkey
Make you... break you... make you... break you... look out

What I make is what I am, I can't live forever

We are our own wicked gods
With little g's and big dicks
Sadistic and constantly inflicting a slow demise

I had a little monkey and I sent him to the country
And I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo-choo and knocked my monkey coo-coo
And now my monkey's dead

The primate's scream of consonance is a reflection
Of his own mind's dissonance

Marilyn Manson My Monkey Comments
  1. Abby Kaiser

    "...they rented out Sharon Tate’s old house to work on the tapes. Tate, was one of Charles Manson’s victims and the house was reported haunted, as the pair found out.
    “One strange thing that happened was we were mixing the song “Wrapped in Plastic”. We were using a computer because we had a lot of samples and sequencing. While we were working on that song the Charles Manson samples from “My Monkey” started appearing in the mix. All of a sudden we’d hear in the song, ‘Why does a child reach up and kill his mom and dad?’ And we couldn’t figure what was going on. The chorus of “Wrapped in Plastic” is, ‘Come into our home/Won’t you stay?’ And we’re in the Sharon Tate house, just me and Sean Beavan [the record’s assistant producer]. We totally got scared and we’re like, ‘We are done for the night.’ We came back the next day and it was fine. The Charles Manson samples weren’t even on the tape anymore. There’s no real logical or technological explanation for why they appeared. It was a truly supernatural moment that freaked me out” – Manson

    [Intro]
    "Why are the children doing what they're doing? Why does a
    child reach up and kill his mom and dad and murder his two little
    sisters and then cut his throat?"

    [Verse 1]
    I had a little monkey
    I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
    Along came a choo-choo, knocked my monkey coo-coo
    And now my monkey's dead
    At least he looks that way
    But then again, don't we all?

    [Chorus]
    What I make is what I am
    I can't be forever

    [Interlude]
    "Raise up children, kill your moms and dads?"

    [Verse 2]
    I had a little monkey
    I sent him to the country, I fed him on gingerbread
    Along came a choo-choo, knocked my monkey coo-coo
    And now my monkey's dead

    Poor little monkey
    "Make you, break you, make you, break you"
    "Make you, break you, make you, look out"



    [Chorus]
    What I make is what I am
    I can't live forever

    [Bridge]
    We are our own wicked gods
    With little G's and big dicks
    Sadistic and constantly inflicting a slow demise

    [Verse 3]
    I had a little monkey, I sent him to the country
    And I fed him on gingerbread
    Along came a choo-choo, knocked my monkey coo-coo
    And now my monkey's dead

    "Along came a choo choo and knocked my monkey cuoo coo and now my monkey is dead" I love that line so much 😂💯💚🔥 good song

  30. Rebecca Maloney

    I hate ginger bread, but I want to see a monkey eat it. I keep imagining a cartoon video to this song, but have no idea how big dicks is involved. Just the lyrics drawn into a cartoon. Word for word but drawn. In the big dicks part though would they all just appear out of nowhere with bulges in their pants, or would they be having cartoon sex as the monkey dies?

  31. Let It Be Known

    I'm eating gingerbread RAVENOUSLY as i listen to this.....

    “What I make is what I am. I can’t live forever.” Very profound, very motivating. What you create is your legacy.

  34. Corey 742617000027

    That moment when a nun falls down and you see some naked hairy midgets scurry out from under the robes and into the sewer

    Let It Be Known
