    I've got a monkey on my back
    Just lately he's got quite fat
    He weighs me down for all to see
    I can't shake him, I want him off me

    He bites and claws, he must be mad
    I cry and scream, the pain is bad
    Just leave, please leave, get off me
    He grips on tight, will he ever release me

    I get up and walk, get on with life
    One day at a time, each step each fight
    I go to work, I do my job
    I come home, I start to sob

    The days go by and the months pass
    light to dark, night by night
    Wherever I go, whoever I tell
    My monkey is there, my monkey my hell.
