"Give us a break.
We know you want to see him,
But let's not give him the feeling, uh
That all we are is curiosity seekers.
If you could fall back a little bit,
Give him a break, he's got a big job to do today."

Well I was born a little apple seed.
No one seemed to notice me.
Stealing kisses in the dark,
From two sisters hard to tell apart.
I was the monkey in the middle
But I never get caught.

From the pump and dump to the bait and switch,
I could do 'em all with the flip of a wrist.
Even as a pup down on the farm,
I never met a beast I couldn't charm.
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

Well St. Petersburg's a funky town.
There's money to be made if you ask around.
Microfilm, discotheques,
Cash in hand and traveler's checks.
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught.

Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught.

Alright.
And I never got caught.
And I never got caught.

Ah watch me now!

Cleopatra ruled the Nile with an iron fist.
Some folks they just couldn't handle it.
They hunted down my river queen,
Nobody laid a hand on me.
I was the monkey in the middle
But I never got caught.

She owned the heart of Egypt land.
They say she died by her own hand.
There was a harmless game of truth or dare,
She grabbed that snake and held it there.
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught.

Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught.

Alright.
And I never got caught.
And I never got caught.

Ah watch me now!

Well, I came into this world unknown.
I've seen so many good people come and go.
But I got no gray hairs upon my head,
And I kept my cool to the bitter end.
I am the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

You let Jesus make your dyin' bed,
Tell him I've got other plans instead.
Take the Reaper off his rounds,
I can shut my own light out.
I'm the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

Yeah, I'm the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

Mr. guitar player!

"I guess it just be that way sometimes
I guess it just be that way sometimes
Ooh I guess it just be that way sometimes"
