Lyrics[]

[Verse 1]

Come on, come on, come on, come on

Come on, it's such a joy, come on, it's such a joy

Come on, let's take it easy, come on let's take it easy


[Chorus]

Take it easy

Take it easy

Everybody's got something to hide

Except for me and my monkey

Woo!


[Verse 2]

The deeper you go, the higher you fly

The higher you fly, the deeper you go

So come on, come on

Come on, it's such a joy, come on, it's such a joy

Come on, let's make it easy, come on, let's take it easy


[Chorus]

Take it easy

Take it easy

Everybody's got something to hide

Except for me and my monkey, yeah

Oh!


[Verse 3]

Your inside is out when your outside is in

Your outside is in when your inside is out

So come on (Woo!), come on (Woo!)

Come on, it's such a joy, come on, it's such a joy

Come on, let's make it easy, come on, let's make it easy


[Chorus]

Make it easy (Woo!)

Make it easy (Woo!)

Everybody's got something to hide

Except for me and my monkey

Hey!

Yeah!


[Outro]

Come on, come on, come on, come on...
