Keith hardly plays two bars the same twice.
Just play along with the song to get the right feeling.

I`m a fleabit peanut monkey, all my friends are junkies
That`s not really true.
I`m a cold Italian pizza, I could use a lemon squeezer
What`d you do?
I`ve been bitten, I`ve been tossed around, by every she-rat in this town
Have you, babe?
Well I am just a monkey man, I`m glad you are a monkey woman too!

I was bitten by a boar, I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through.
Yes, I`m a sack of broken eggs, I always have an unmade bed
Don`t you?
Well I hope we`re not too messianic, or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues.
But when I am just a monkey man, I`m glad you are a monkey woman too.
