"Livin' with Monkeys" is a song from "Where's Perry? (Part Two)". It's performed by Candace, with background vocals by Laura Dickinson, after she thought that Jeremy had broken up with her, and she turns to live with monkeys.

Lyrics

Episode version

Candace: Tired of all the games
People play with your emotions
Tired of all the pressures of society
Tired of always feeling like I'm going through the motions (ooh..)
Fed up with all the fretting and anxiety (ahh...)

So I'm leaving it all behind
The house, the car, running water, electricity... (ahh...)
Yes, I'm leaving it all behind
No more heartache, pain, and sorrow
No more stressing about tomorrow

'Cause here is my new life (ahh...)
I'm feeling free (free..)
And I'm living with monkeys (ooh, ha ooh ahh ooh ahh)

And admittedly, that's a little strange.

Yeah, I'm living with monkeys (Ooh, ha, ooh, haha, ooh, ha)

They've accepted me as one of their own ('Cause I'm living with monkeys)
At least that's what I'm assuming (Yeah, I'm living with monkeys!)
It's not really all that bad
Once you get used to all the grooming

'Cause I'm living with monkeys!

Album version

Candace: Tired of all the games

Tired of all the pressures of society
Tired of always feeling like I'm going through the motions (ooh..)
Fed up with all the fretting and anxiety (ahh...)

So I'm leaving it all behind
The house, the car, running water, electricity... (ahh...)
Yes, I'm leaving it all behind
No more heartache, pain, and sorrow
No more stressing about tomorrow

'Cause here is my new life (ahh...)
I'm feeling free (free..)
And I'm living with monkeys (ooh, ha ooh ahh ooh ahh)

And admittedly, that's a little strange.

They've accepted me as one of their own
At least that's what I'm assuming
It's not really all that bad
Once you get used to all the grooming

I swing from vines as I pass the time away, (ooh...)
Eat bananas and ride elephants all day (ahh...)
And I'm livin' with monkeys.
Yeah, I'm livin' with monkeys. (ooh, ha, ooh, haha, ooh ha)

'Cause I'm livin' with monkeys. Aw, yeah! (ooh, ha, ooh, haha, ooh ha)
Yeah, I'm livin' with monkeys!(ooh, ha, ooh, haha, ooh ha)
'Cause I'm living with monkeys!

'Cause I'm livin' with monkeys!
