Monkey Business

Michael Jackson (recorded in 1989)
It is included on an ultra rare promo titled ‘Promo Flight Only’, of which only ten copies exist, given to Sony executives on their way to Neverland from Europe in 1991, as a teaser for the tracks under consideration for Michael’s album, Dangerous – the promo also featured the still unreleased Men In Black.

It was scheduled to be included on the expanded, special edition of Dangerous, issued in 2001, before the bonus CD was cancelled.  It surfaced on the internet in 2002 – there was no official release until it was included on Michael’s box-set, The Ultimate Collection, issued in November 2004

Written by Michael Jackson and Bill Bottrell

Well, Lord Have Mercy
Well, Lord Have Mercy
This Ain’t No Good For Me
This Ain’t No Good For Me, Babe

 

Well, Lord Have Mercy
Well, Lord Have Mercy
Ain’t No Good For Me, Babe
Tell Me It’s Going Down, Babe

 

Every Time I Wanna Say It, It Is
Just Too Much For Me
I Don’t Ever Wanna Say It Cause
It’s All The Blasphemy
Everybody’s Doing It To Somebody’s Love
In Sight Of Me
I Might Tell On You
Don’t You Start No Stuff With Me

 

Your Brother’s Got Kids With Your Mother-In-Law
I Might Drop Dead About What I Saw, Oh Lord

I Caught Your Mother, She Doing The Dude
You Can’t Like It That I’m Looking Right At You
Stop It, It’s Too Much

Monkey Business Going Down

 

Well, Lord Have Mercy
Well, Lord Have Mercy
Don’t Be Calling Out “Mercy Me” (Don’t Be Calling Out “Mercy Me”)
Don’t Be Calling Down, Babe (Don’t Be Calling Out Mercy)

 

Well, Lord Have Mercy
Even More Of Mercy
Don’t Be Calling Out “Mercy Me” (Don’t Be Calling Out “Mercy Me”)
Don’t Be Going Down, Babe (Don’t Be Calling Out “Mercy”)

 

Every Time I Wanna Say It, It Is
Just Too Much For Me
Everybody’s Doing It To Somebody’s Love
It Seems To Me
I Just Can’t Believe The Things I’m Seeing
So Just Let It Be
I Might Tell On You
So Don’t You Start No Stuff With Me

 

Your Brother’s Got Kids With Your Mother-In-Law
I Might Drop Dead About What I Saw, Oh Lord

I Caught Your Mother, She Doing The Dude
You Can’t Like It That I’m Looking Right At You
Stop It, It’s Too Much
Monkey Business Going Down

 

BRIDGE:
I Read The Paper And I Can’t Believe What’s Going Round
Somebody’s Doing It To Somebody’s Up  Somebody’s Down
The Government Won’t Pay My Taxes And I’m Really Mad
My Mouth Might Let It Be
So Don’t You Monkey Shine With Me

 

Your Brother’s Got Kids With Your Mother-In-Law
I Might Drop Dead About What I Saw, Oh Lord
I Caught Your Mother, She Doing A Dude
You Can’t Like It That I’m Looking Right At You
Your Brother’s Got Kids With Your Mother-In-Law
I Might Drop Dead About What I Saw, Oh Lord

Your Brother Didn’t Make A Nickel, Or Dime Too
Sitting Around Telling How He Did It To You
Stop It, It’s Too Much
Monkey Business Going Down

Monkey business going down)
I’m not satisfied
(Monkey business going down)
Don’t wanna party
(Monkey business going down)
My business is your business
(Monkey business going down)

Monkey see, monkey do
You Can’t Like It That I’m Looking Right At You
Your business is my business
Your business is my business
Mother of the kids baby

It’s Too Much Monkey Business Going Down (Oh, No)
