Nil Lara - Money Makes The Monkey Dance lyrics

MONEY MAKES THE MONKEY DANCE

Eh marará¡ i lle llea...
"You are about to embark on a journey.
You are going to visit monkeys, dolphins, and people..."

I look around and all I see are politicians on the take
I look at me I am the same but I don't notice
And I have learned that everybody has a price tag on his head

Though it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance
And it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey, monkey, monkey dance...

On Sunday mornings when I went went to church a buck was always made
A true parade to pave the way into the glory
And 30 coins was all they paid for all the ways I should behave

Though it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance
And it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance

Aye, awa ko ako...

And I have paid my way through life I've kept myself so far removed
From everyone and everything that could be purchased
I will collect what I've put in my piggy bank is locked within

Though it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance
And it's money that will make the monkey dance
Oh I want money
Give me money
So much money
Tender money
Cause it's money that will make the monkey dance
I'm the monkey, I'm the monkey
Eh marará¡ i...

And though my pockets have a hole I feel content within my soul
I've been sincere with all the customers encountered
I can't complain I'm rich in love and I must thank my God above

Though it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance
And it's money that will make the monkey dance
Yes it's money that will make the monkey dance
