    The Monks - Black Monk Time

    Who do we have here? Ex-soldiers stationed in Germany, and staying there to make a record with anti-Vietnam lyrics, performing in black monk robes. We didn't encounter that already! The record was at first banned in the United States just because of the lyrics. Some examples:

    Alright, my name's Gary.
    Let's go, it's beat time, it's hop time, it's monk time now!
    You know we don't like the army.
    What army?
    Who cares what army?
    Why do you kill all those kids over there in Vietnam?
    Mad Viet Cong.
    My brother died in Vietnam!
    James Bond, who was he?
    Stop it, stop it, I don't like it!
    It's too loud for my ears.
    Pussy galore's comin' down and we like it.
    We don't like the atomic bomb.
    Stop it, stop it, I don't like it . . . stop it!
    (Monk Time)

    Complication,
    Constipation!
    People cry,
    People die for you.
    People kill,
    People will for you.
    People run,
    Ain't it fun for you.
    People go
    To their deaths for you.
    Complication!
