Doesn't feel very good, when you know that it should,
You've been left far behind.
Don't pay it no mind,
when you find,
It's the monkey in your mind.

Doesn't feel very good, when you know that it should,
Won't you carve up the turkey now.
Play with the truth,
When you read from your books.
From the day you were born till you die.
Don't pay it no mind,
'Cause they've got,
The monkey in your mind.

Do you think of the truth, when you read from your books.
Distorting the past, so it can lie.
Naming your names, playing a game.
From the day you are born till you die.
Don't give it no mind,
If you find,
It's the monkey in your mind.

Who will tell you, all the things you can do.
Who gives a sigh,if you live, if you die.

Doesn't feel very good, when you know that it should,
They've got that look in their eye.
Came down with a thud, came down in the mud.
The clock keeps ticking all the time.
Don't pay it no mind,
If you find,
It's the monkey in your mind.
