MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP

MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP

WORDS AND MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS © 2010 ACHTUNES/ ASCAP (73 BPM)

 

THE LOVE OF MY LIFE IS HEAVEN SENT
SHE’S A FRUGAL MCDOUGAL WHEN I’M BADLY BENT
THESE DAYS I BARELY MAKE ENOUGH TO PAY OUR RENT
BUSKIN’ FROM DAWN TO DUSK

SHE DESERVES THE BEST SO I NEVER TAKE A REST
I PUT ON A FEZ AND MY OLD RED VEST
GET OUT ON THE STREET START BEATING MY CHEST
TILL COINS ARE FILLING MY CUP

MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP
MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP
WHEN THE ORGAN GRINDS I SEE DOLLAR SIGNS
3rd Chorus (AT THE SOUND OF CA CHING I’LL BE DOING MY THING)
MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP
(OH YEAH- MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY JUMP 2X)

I’M A LOW BUDGET GUY WITH HIGH EXPECTATIONS
DREAMING WE’RE TAKIN’ AN ISLAND VACATION
SWINGING FROM VINES IN EXOTIC LOCATIONS
SIPPING ON MANGO FANDANGOS

MY HAVANA BANANA’S SO RIPE FOR THE PICKIN’
WHEN I GO INTO THE DANCE OF THE FUNKY CHICKEN
SHE SAYS: YOU’RE CUTE, FUNNY AND YOU MAKE MY PULSE QUICKEN
SOON WE’RE GONNA BE ROLLING IN DOUGH

 CHORUS + SOLO ON CHORUS

I LOVE SHOW BUSINESS IT’S STILL A BIG THRILL
EVERY CORNER I PLAY I’M TOP OF THE BILL
AIN’T CAUGHT A BREAK YET BUT SHE TELLS ME I WILL
SO I GO FOR THE GOLD
