Song Lyrics

[Ecco = Normal, Bono = Bold, Others
= Italic]




[Newscaster]
Good Evening, David Dinkins, he fought the good
fight, finished the race
And kept the faith which he asked his supporters
to keep
Through a long and hard fought campaign
Victory is his
And the future of New York both literally and figuratively
will be in great part
His to shape for the next four years


Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey
Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey

Amen
Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey
Amen
Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey


New York New York
It is the Best
New York New York
Forget the rest
New York New York
They say it’s cool
New York New York
Don’t call me a fool
New York New York
What you say?
New York New York
Have a nice day
New York New York
They say it’s tough
New York New York
But I like it rough


I got the monkey on my back
I got the monkey on my back
I got the monkey on my back
I got the monkey on my back

Mon-key


New York New York
I like this place
New York New York
Now shut your face
New York New York
Come on baby
New York New York
Just follow me
New York New York
Let’s go downtown
New York New York
Let’s stick around
New York New York
I like this stretch
New York New York
It is the best


I’ve got the monkey on my back

Amen
I’ve got the monkey on my back

A-a-a-amen
I’ve got the monkey on my back

Amen
I’ve got the monkey on my back
Mon-key


Amen
Amen
Amen


What you say?
Amen
Have a nice day

[Newscaster]
They posed together just before noon
The man who’s fielded questions here for a dozen
years
The man whose won the right to start today
First up for the mayor elect a question about whether
his
Narrow victory margin will make it tougher to pull
New York City together


New York New York
It is the Best
New York New York
Forget the rest
New York New York
They say it’s cool
New York New York
Don’t call me a fool
New York New York
What you say
New York New York
Have a nice day
New York New York
They say it’s tough
New York New York
But I like it rough


I got the monkey on my back

I got the monkey on my back
I got the monkey on my back
I got the monkey on my back

Mon-key


Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey /
Right on
Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey

Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey

Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey, right on
Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey

You’ve got a monkey on your back
Yeah it must be
Everyday why?
Amen
Everyday why?
Hey hey, C’mon / Amen
Hey hey, that’s right
Hey hey, what you say / Amen
Hey hey, keep it tight
Hey hey, alright / Amen


Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey / Amen

Monkey, Mo-mo-monkey
