„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?“

Shock The Monkey
Song lyrics, Security (1982)

And you're just in reach,
When you and sleep escape me.“
