verse: 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pixies/monkey_gone_to_heaven_tab_ver_2.html ]
the creature in the sky  
got sucked in a hole 
now there's a hole now in the sky 
and the ground's not cold 
and if the ground's not cold 
everything is gonna burn 
we'll all take turns 
i'll get mine too 

(chorus)
