Monkey See, Monkey Do!


Sweet played me this song.
When it first started, I rolled my eyes.
They rolled! Nothing I could do about it.

Sweet wanted to post it. And I knew I didn't have a chance against her.

But after a minute or two, the song set it's hooks.
It's catchy. It really is. And it's not that bad. Kinda good actually.

So now I agree with her. It's more than postworthy. It's downright decent.
But the 'bananas' comment still scares me.

Mark my words, it'll get stuck in your head.

Sweet told me that it reminds her of 'The Hokey Pokey'.
I mentioned to her that the writer of that song passed away a while back, and it took them three days to bury him.

They put his right foot in, they took his right foot out...

Here is Sweet with the link, the story and the lyrics.

I got Tramp with this song and I'll get you too!

You can find my new favorite song here.

It's a 'stick in your head' type of tune...


It kinda of reminds me of 'the hokey pokey'...

Monkey See, Monkey Do!

Here’s a song that you will either completely love or completely hate!
One thing's for sure, you'll remember the lyrics and the incredibly catchy chorus after one listen.

The style is of the European-style heavy dance/Schlager format that is extremely popular and is making a big comeback. The song is about the frustrations of infidelity in a relationship (Sounds more like revenge to me! - Tramp). Publishing for Germany, Austria and Switzerland has been taken by MVB-MUSIC.

Monkey See, Monkey Do

Music & Words: Peter Baker


I know we both made some mistakes, that much is true

In every partnership, there's plenty work to do

But work to me ain't monkey business on the side

Could you not think how I would feel that you had lied

There ain’t no point - in picking a fight-

This monkey's gonna do - just what he feels is right…'cos


Monkey see, monkey do Now I'll do the same as you

Monkey see, monkey do Time to mix some jungle brew

Monkey see, monkey do Need a creature more my type

Monkey see, monkey do I'll unzip bananas ripe, oh yeah


Strange how your business meetings carried on so long

I thought you worked so hard, there could be nothing wrong

Primeval urges led you off the road for good

Temptations led you off far further than you should

There ain’t no point - in picking a fight-

This monkey's gonna do - just what he feels is right…'cos


Monkey see, monkey do Now I'll do the same as you

Monkey see, monkey do Time to mix some jungle brew

Monkey see, monkey do Need a creature more my type

Monkey see, monkey do I'll unzip bananas ripe, oh yeah


In the still of the night

There’s a sound that not quite right

That’s not rustling in the trees

Hundreds of monkeys acting like me!


Monkey see, monkey do Now I'll do the same as you

Monkey see, monkey do Time to mix some jungle brew

Monkey see, monkey do Need a creature more my type

Monkey see, monkey do I'll unzip bananas ripe, oh yeah
