“This was inspired by all the people in parks last week. Just to show you I have class as a writer. The Monkey (The Devil I Know) There's a monkey on my shoulder/ And he's whispering in my ear/ And he's telling me everything's fine/ Though the nights are getting colder/ Still there's nothing to fear/ As long as there's a corkscrew for the wine/ I'm gonna stick to the devil I know / Cos the monkey told me so/ My old pal wouldn't lie to me/ So I'll stick to the devil I know/ /TBC ”

More details

The monkey cont....
...
Now the monkey on my shoulder/
Tells me what I want to hear/
Cos my monkey and me, we agree/
Got my monkey to protect me/
Cos it isn’t that severe/
And nothing will be happening to me/

I'm gonna stick to the devil I know/
Cos the monkey told me so/
My monkey knows what's best for me/
So I'll stick to the devil I know/

My monkey's there on Twitter/
And he says I should be free/
And he's telling me I'm in the clear/
Cos I’m younger and I’m fitter/
It’s for grandad, not for me/
And anyway it’s gonna disappear/

I'm gonna stick to the devil I know/
Cos the monkey told me so/
My monkey he's the Word of God/
So I'll stick to the devil I know/

The monkey's making faces/
Saying have another jar/
Let’s all go for a rave in the park/
Though you read about these cases/
All my friends are fine so far/
And we’re still up for going for a lark/

I'm gonna stick to the devil I know /
Cos the monkey told me so/
When my monkey gives me the old come-on/
I'll stick to the devil I know/

BRIDGE

Look at that sun shining brightly/
Hanging so pure in the sky/
Why should we live so uptightly?/
We’re young so we’re not gonna die/
Look at the daffs and the cherry in bloom/
My monkey is dancing to banish the gloom/
What’s all this bollocks about social distance?/
I’m gonna join the social resistance/

Now my monkey's feeling poorly/
He's not looking well at all/
And I don’t feel too frisky myself/
Now I got my doubts, but surely/
That's not how the cards should fall/
It's always meant to be for someone else/

So I'll stick to the devil I know /
Cos the monkey told me so/
My monkey's here to hold my hand/
So I'll stick to the devil I know/

CODA:

Don't go burying me alone/
Lay my monkey in here too/
And write above in words of stone/
"He stuck to the devil he knew"/
