Redbone - One Monkey Lyrics




Rollin' in the rich man's war, feelin' not so very cool
I don't take my handout, oh I swing it all night long
It's not happenin', I don't feel it
Puts the strainin' back as canin'
Then you find it and pull yourself together and come out with a mouthful
Know that one monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show

Movin' up the 'D' track oh, I got my hammer in my hand
Takin' mind for goodness Oh I, I'll give the best for you
Oh I'm tryin', yes I'm tryin'
Got to make it, not just fake it
But the music gets you goin' stronger and it drives you right on
You know that one monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show

Rollin' in the rich man's war, feelin' not so very cool
Gotta take my handout, swing it all night long
It's not happenin', I don't feel it
Puts the strainin' back as canin'
Then you find it and pull yourself together and come out with a mouthful
'Cause you know that one monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show
One monkey
He don't stop no show

    Absolutely right Mr. Horner,These guys are so tuff,'' I'm Gonna take my Hammer ( Ax) swing it all night long,Voice is straining in fact it's Paining, gonna get myself together come out with a smile,cause you know oh ! one monkey , he don't stop no show !, in other words you have to keep going forward in a positive manner regardless,an individual or issue you might have to go out on stage and perform, that's why you are being paid, and if you are for real, a real (musician)you "Got to make it'' ''not just faking'' ,''you get yourself together and come out with a "Smile''!, the show must go on in other words such is life if you are an ''Artist.''.This also very much about team work right!.

    definite hippies - who wasn't in 71 - groovy tune though...

    Robert Cook

    These aren't hippies, Red bone is a band made up of Native Americans.

    Anthony Leighton
