"Shock the Monkey" is a rock song performed by Peter Gabriel. It was featured in the Season Seven episode, "Raisins".

BackgroundEdit

Stan Marsh asked Bebe Stevens for advice on how to impress Wendy Testaburger, in an attempt to get back together with her. She told him to play Peter Gabriel, mimicking the scene in the movie Say Anything when John Cusak as Lloyd Dobler played "In Your Eyes" for Ione Skye as Diane Court. Unfortunately he played this song before realizing Wendy and Token Black were in the house together.

LyricsEdit

Shock the monkey to life
Shock the monkey to life

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know when you're going to shock the monkey

Fox the fox
Rat the rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

Wheels keep turning
Something's burning
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning

Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

Too much at stake
Ground beneath me shake
And the news is breaking

Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life
