Guybrush singing in the Barbery Coast.

"There's a Monkey in My Pocket" is a popular children's song that Guybrush Threepwood sings on a couple of occasions.

The Curse of Monkey Island

In The Curse of Monkey Island Guybrush sings the song to Edward Van Helgen in the Barbery Coast to audition to join their barbershop quartet. Van Helgen is disgusted with Guybrush's singing and vehemently refuses.


Oh, there's a monkey in my pocket,
And he's stealing all my change,
His stare is blank and glassy,
I suspect that he's deranged...

Tales of Monkey Island

In the fourth episode of Tales of Monkey Island, Guybrush sings a slightly different version of this song (albeit in a much better tone than in Curse) when he examines Jacques, the electromagnetic monkey, in his inventory. (In the PS3 version, doing so prior to clearing all civil charges and using the bathroom in Club 41 earns the player a "Musical Memories" bronze trophy in the PlayStation Network Trophy Achievements.)


Oh, there's a monkey in my pocket,
He's attracting all my change,
His tail is a magnet,
And I think that he's got mange...
