Strolling Oakland: Monkey Man

I see no sign of you,
Only hear that you

 Hugging up a big monkey man,

 It's not lie, 
It's not lie,
Hugging up a big monkey man

 Now I know that,
Now I understand,
You're turning a monkey on me

Aye, Aye Aye,
Aye Aye, Aye,
Hugging up a big monkey man

It's not lie,
It's not lie,
Rubbing up a big monkey man


See you in the rear-view mirror,
Wonder if you can make any money replacing
Broken car windows in Oakland?

Original lyrics by Toots and the Maytals,

The Flaneur recalls seeing them perform in their prime,
Wasn't it the Stone on Broadway SF, early eighties?
Dig it here:
