lyrics:

tweeter and the monkeyman were hard up for cash/ they stayed up all night
selling cocaine and hash/ to and undercover cop who had a sister named
jan/ for reasons unexplained, she loved the monkeyman/ tweeter was a
boyscout/`course he went to vietnam/ found out the hard way nobody gives a
***/ they knew that they found that freedom just across the jersey line/
hopped into a stolen car and took highway 99.

when the walls came down/ all the way to hell/ never saw them when they
standin`/ never saw them when they fell.

the undercover cop/ never liked the monkeyman/ even back in highschool/
wanted to see him in the can/ jan got married at fourteen to a rackateer
named bill/ made secret plans with the monkeyman from a mansion on a hill/
it was out on thunder road/ tweeter at the wheel/ pulled into paradise/
you could hear the tires squeel/ `cause jan told me many times it was you
to me who taught/ in kingston everything`s legal man/ as long as you don`t
get caught.

when the walls came down/ all the way to hell/ never saw them when they
standin`/ never saw them when they fell.

someplace by rahway prison/ they ran outta gas/ the undercover cop had
cornered them/ said ya didn`t think that this could last/ jan jumped up
outta bed/ said there`s someplace i gotta go/ she took a gun out of the
drawer/ said it`s best that you don`t know/ an ambulance rode up/ state
trooper close behind/ tweeter pulled his gun away and messed up his mind/
the undercover cop was found face down in a field/ the monkeyman was on
the river bridge usin` tweeter as a shield.

when the walls came down/ all the way to hell/ never saw them when they
standin`/ never saw them when they fell.

the town of jersey city/ it`s quieted down again/ i`m sittin` in a
gamblin` club called the lions den/ the t.v. set is blown up/ every bit of
it is gone/ every since the show when the monkeyman was on/ maybe i`ll go
to florida/ get myself some sun/ there ain`t no more activity here and
everything`s been done/ sometimes i think of tweeter/ sometimes i think of
jan/ sometimes i don`t about nothin` but the monkeyman.

when the walls came down/ all the way to hell/ never saw them when they
stand/ never saw them when they fell.
