The English Beat — Monkey Murders lyrics

At the center, no one warns you
When that moment might turn the corner
Stand the test of your position
Remember monkey murders always love ambition

Collect black marks when you try too hard
Not to treat her like another toy
It makes you mad, you sleep so badly
Cos you're out every saturday night
For what you can't get, boy
Is it a problem boy?

Let's be kind to one another
Share your sister, you could eat your brother
Who cares when it's only fashion
Remember monkey murders always come with passion

Remember that night when you tried too hard
Not to treat her like another toy
It made you mad, you slept so badly
Now you're out every saturday night
For what you can't get,
Boy, is it a problem boy?

So obsessive, drinking in the spotlight
He's standing still but of course he's taking all night
Says "there is no love and there is no trust"
Said "bite your lip or keep your mouth shut
Keep your mouth shut keep your mouth shut
Keep your mouth shut"
Boy?
Is it a problem boy?
Is it a problem boy?
Yes, is it a problem.
