Monkeys Uptown Lyrics

I knew you well, I know you best
A baby mouth, and I the breast
A lazy bone, an eagle eye
Circling a city that's higher than the sky

And it's looking like you better do what they say
Those monkeys uptown, they told you not to fuck around
Heavens the name and river is brown
With all the mud and the rain
It never settles down

It never settles down

Your baby left you unimpressed
But no one likes a beggar, slightly overdressed
And trouble comes in funky clothes
You can always find a razor lying on the road.

And it's looking like you better do what they say
Those monkeys uptown, they told you not to fuck around
Heavens the name and river is brown
With all the mud and the rain
It never settles down

It never settles down

I knew you well, I know you best
Everybody owes something to everybody else
Gabrielle gave me some news to give to you:
"Never take him for granted, you've nothing better to do"

And it's looking like you better do what they say
Those monkeys uptown, they told you not to fuck around
Heavens the name and river is brown
With all the mud and the rain
It never settles down.

It never settles down.
