Monkey Man Lyrics

Great Monkey Man has gone the distance
The lucky one's going to get it all
Loving life now
Living on top of
Lucky ones always get it all

Oh, I'm hungry
Don't wanna die like a little dog
Gonna take what I can get
I'm the Monkey Man
With the great, great monkey plan

It's crazy, crazy, little man
You've got yourself entangled

Oh, love to lie to myself
To say everything is fine now
We got to keep it up
Or fall behind
I got to keep it up
Or lose the edge we found
Drive faster, build higher, still higher
I dig deeper down 'til it's down in the ground
It's found, used up and then thrown out

Crazy, crazy little man
What do you think you're doing here?

Big, beautiful world just for us
Good use we must put it to
Any way I can think to use it up
What will I tell my grandson's grandsons?

I could weave a fairy tale
A great Bible-thumping scale
When he stands empty hands
On his empty land
That's what happened here
Great, great Monkey Man

Well did you think grey was the color of bliss?
You think I don't know quite what to say
But I'm worried for myself in this

I'm hungry
Don't wanna die like a little dog
Well, I eat what I can get
From the Monkey Man
Great, great monkey plan

Crazy, crazy man
You get yourself turned in a pickle

Crazy, crazy Monkey Man
Who is the one in the middle

Take a walk
Cross the ice
Melts too quickly
For us to reach the other side

It's cold in here
But the sun shines bright, oh
It warms this up well
Oh, the tide is rising higher

Look, it's strange
Floating by
Looks just like ones that
Flow out and ride, oh, I will

Golden age
These golden times
Our golden days seem to have us
Hypnotized or blind, well
