    Lyrics

    Johnny was a pusher on the east side
    pushing anything to be pushed
    Laid something on a guy who didn't get high
    Didn't know the guy was a hood

    Wheeling-dealing Johnny got frightened
    thought the best place was out of town
    Packed up his bags and threw them in the back
    Packed up his bags and threw them in the back
    of his Chevy put his foot flat down

    Look out Johnny there's a monkey on your back
    You better beware there Johnny
    'cause the monkey's packin' a gat
    Drivin' over red lights speeding down the freeway
    Johnny Johnny get away

    You better beware there Johnny
    There's a monkey on your back

    Johnny thought he'd do something clever
    Turning south on the old Coast Road
    Pushing 94 swerving leaning on the door
    trying to shake off his heavy load

    Crossed the state line feeling safer
    Drinking in the corner of a bar
    In walked a guy looked the barman in the eye
    said "Hey is Johnny in here"

    chorus

    You better beware there Johnny
    There's a monkey on your back
    Be good

    You better beware there Johnny
    there's a monkey on your back
    Look out Johnny 'cos the monkey's packin' a gat
    Drivin' over red lights speeding down the freeway
    Johnny Johnny get away

    You better beware there Johnny
    There's a monkey on your back
    Look out Johnny there's a monkey on your back
