Yes I'm ready You get yours I got mine For the monkey time Monkey time Do the monkey yeah Do the monkey yeah Do the monkey yeah, yeah Do the monkey yeah, yeah Twist them hips Let your backbone slip Now move your feet Get on the beat Are you ready? Yes I'm ready Are you ready? Yes I'm ready You get yours I got mine For the monkey time Monkey time Are you ready? Yes I'm ready Are you ready? Yes I'm ready Are you ready? Yes I'm ready You get yours I got mine [SPOKEN] Say Fee Are you ready tonight? I'm ready baby But you're ready for what, Fee? I'm ready to do the monkey, baby You ready for my monkey? I'm ready, and my monkey's ready Your monkey Oooo, you'd better put that baby on a chain My monkey know what he talkin' about And he's gonna jump all over you Now stop it, Fee I don't wanna hear about it no more Want a whole lot o' love tonight Treat your monkey right Want a whole lot o' love tonight Monkey time tonight Want a whole lot o' love tonight Treat your monkey right Want a whole lot o' love tonight Monkey time tonight Want a whole lot o' love tonight [Fade]
