Monkey Corner Lyrics


Plant your roots and spread your seed
Fill the world with love not greed
What a strange reflection across your face and in your eyes
What a strange thought that you can deliver with surprise

There be monkeys in the corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

Fill me with your musical spirit
Let me hear it from the soul
Turn into a song that can touch my heart
Make me feel like I belong

Play to me with your music
Play your music oh so loud
Play to me with your music
I can’t hear any sounds
Except the sounds of love
That we feel forever

There be monkeys in the corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

We all have our place now
Round this table we’re sat
The fire sets a blaze
in flumes of ash
I’ll just sit here singing my songs
So that you can all keep carrying on
Don’t lose spirit, hold for a hope
Give in to your body, let it flow
Turn it into a song touch my heart
Make me feel like I belong
Play me your music play me your sounds
Let me know where we can be bound
To the sounds of love
That we feel forever

To be true
There be monkeys in the corner
One and all
Keep a chimney burning for ya
To be true

Play me your music play me your sounds
Let me know where we can be bound
To the sounds of love
That we feel forever

There be monkeys in this corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya

Mountain birds sing their song
Singing in celebration
And in their voice I hear a passion
And it will paralyse me where I stand

There be monkeys in the corner
Keep a chimney burning for ya
