lyrics

I’m a monkey in a silo
I’m a junkie in a shadow
I’m a flunky running errands
I’m working for the man…

I’m a little bitty parcel
in a big old suitcase.
I’m a top secret
harebrained plan

I don’t feel no pain, so I don’t mind
I got a whole hour to kill
before the bus leaves.
So slap me a high five,
do a little hand jive.
I’m buzzing like a beehive,
I’m a monkey in a silo.

They say nobody’s perfect.
They say nothing is real.
so I guess that explains why
I really feel like no one…

Can’t think about nothing,
won’t get ahold of zero,
don’t go nowhere till,
this goddamn bus leaves.

Here nobody loves me,
Here nobody hates me
Here nobody knows exactly
where I hid that money.

Funny ship don’t sink,
funny shit don’t float,
funny miss the boat,
I’m a monkey in a silo.

Wonder where I’d be
if I was never born
my little bitty atoms
just scattered everywhere.

I’m part of the elbow
of the Venus de Milo.
I’m in Einstein’s brain
I’m a money in a silo

And this circle of life,
well it’s a fucking joke!
Exacted one everyone by God Almighty,

Tell Walt Disney,
Sigmund Freud
and that kid named Beaver
I’m a monkey in a silo.
