The fortune teller looked into my eyballs The wrinkles on her face about to crack She said ' You best believe it, You ain't goin' nowhere, unless you get that
Monkey Off your back'
I made believe the devil made me do it I was the evil leader of the pack You best believ I had it all and then I blew it Feedin' that fuckin' Monkey On My Back
If you put it a spoon man I would boot it Some king whose mental house was just a shack Where do you draw the line when all your friends are dyin' You got to get that mokey off your back Uh, uh, uh....
Your crystal ball is where you chase the dragon She said, 'now' I bring me home his head inside a sack But now you find your crystal balls are dragin' Got to get that monkey off your back
