lyrics

He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
and he doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do
but we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue

The empty space

So you fly to the right of the infinite well
passed the hole in the wall and the sanity bell
And as you soar through the stars with the greatest of ease
you'll find the freak of the skies in the planet of cheese

He is a monkey
A little monkey

He's green he smells he acts like a God
and the cross in his eyes makes him look kind of odd
As he walks he struts with a manner of hate
towards the blind and the weak who pass through his gate

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky
We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky

So if you choose to ignore what is waiting for you
at the end of the line then I'll give you a clue
He's a fiend with a mind that will feast on the pure
but seek the chimp of the skies and your pain will endure

He is a monkey
A little monkey

Flying through the night off to see the monkey moon
Far above the world far above the sky

We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky
We're flying in the sky
We're flying so high
We're flying in the sky

He is a monkey and he lives in the moon
He doesn't go to bed and he doesn't go to school
He is a monkey and he knows just what we do
But we haven't got a feeling no we haven't got a clue
