Steel monkey  Jethro Tull

[C#5]     [E]  [B]   [C#5]    [F#]   [B]   As th[F#5]e moon slips up, and the sun sets do[Aadd9]wn,
I'm a hi[F#5]ghrise jockey, and I'm he[D]aven-bou[B]nd.
Do the wo[F#5]rkboot shuffle, loose brains from br[Aadd9]awn.
I'm a [F#5]monkey puzzle and the lid[D] is on[B].
[D#5]    Can you guess my name? C[F7sus4]an you guess my trade?
[F#]I'm going to catch you anyway.[G#sus2]
Y[D#5]ou might be rig[F7sus4]ht. I'll give you guesses three.
[F#]Feel me climbing[G#sus2] up your knee.
[C#5]    Guess what I am. I'm a s[E]teel monke[C#5]y.
(rest the same)
Now some men hustle and some just think.
And some go running before you blink.
Some look up and some look down
from three hundred feet above the ground.
Can you guess my name? And can you guess my trade?
Well, I won't rest before the world is made.
Arm in arm the angels fly.
Keep me from falling out the sky.
