Help me figure out this song!

PLEASE!!!!!!! I'm going nuts!!
I know these are not the words, but, it's what my son keeps singing and I can't figure out what the name is and who sings it.
He's saying " Don't you know your brother....shot the monkey

lol, that's "shock the monkey" by peter gabriel

Shock the monkey to life
Shock the monkey to life

Cover me when I run
Cover me through the fire
Something knocked me out' the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please
Hey, hey, hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna shock the monkey
Hey, hey

Fox the fox
Rat on the rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Hey, hey, hey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're gonna shock the monkey

Hey, hey
Shock the monkey
Hey, hey, hey, yeah

(Monkey)
Wheels keep turning
(Monkey--AHHHHHHHHH!)
Something's burning
(Monkey)
Don't like it but I guess I'm learning

Shock!
Shock!
Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

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

Hey, hey, hey, yeah

(Monkey)
Too much at stake
(Monkey--AHHHHHHHHHHH!)
Ground beneath me shake
(Monkey)
And the news is breaking

Shock!
Shock!
Shock! - watch the monkey get hurt, monkey

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey

Shock the monkey to life (repeat 6 times)

Shock the monkey
Shock the monkey to life

Oh god, Bucky, THANK YOU!!!!! I knew when I saw it, I would start laughing at what it was!! I knew that and couldn't figure out the shock part!! I was arguing with him cause he was saying it was Phil Collins, but, since I couldn't remember who it was, he said I didn't know it. Little butthead. LOL

Well... your son was pretty close, sort of... Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel used to play together in a band called Genesis a few decades ago...
