Sock monkey
Rules!

The little fella

First gained popularity

In the

Midwestern region

Of the you. S.

Made from

"Red Heel" socks

It was the sock that America wore

To work

Compliments of Rockford, Illinois

A symbol of working class families

Just tryin'

To make a livin'

Just tryin' to make ends meet

Didn't need no shiny doll

Didn't need Barbie's disco gear

Just want to hold my sock monkey

Just wanted to hold my sock monkey

'til my daddy comes

Daddy wore those red heeled socks

Every day when he went to work

I'm want to hold my sock monkey

'til Daddy comes through that door

And opens up his arms

To envelope me

Sock monkey

Can fly!

Can slew dragons!

Can out shoot'em!

And out dance'em!

Sock monkey

Makes everything all right

Sock monkey

Takes care of me

Ruby red lips

Long, black eyelashes

Loving smile

True heart

Just want to hold my sock monkey

'til Daddy comes through that door

Gonna hold my sock monkey

'til Daddy comes through that door

Just a working class girl

Who can't afford a shiny doll

But I'm just as happy

Holding my sock monkey

'til Daddy comes through that door

'cause he gets me through the night

'cause he makes everything all right
