Pete Droge - Two-Steppin' Monkey lyrics

Doctor Grey was on the ferris wheel
Missed the concert in the park
Left his children at the old folks home
Paints self portraits in the dark

Plays his Mozart loud, cuts the coupons out
He thanks psychology for paying
But that pension plan's got less
To give than he ever wanted

He's just a two steppin' monkey
A two steppin? monkey's all he'll ever be
And I'm just a two steppin' monkey too
So let's put him in the zoo with you and me

Billy Cambell revved his engine up
Hit the strip on a Friday night
Parked his truck outside the convenience store
Walked inside and shot the clerk

Found some time to kill, thrills were hard to find
Now it's hard time in the pen
But that jail cell's got less
To give than he ever wanted

He's just a two steppin' monkey
A two steppin' monkey's all he'll ever be
And I'm just a two steppin' monkey too
So let's put him in the zoo with you and me

The rent was paid again too late this week
And Mr. Maxwell's got his tie too tight
Thought it might change the way his girlfriend felt
To see him dressing up at night

He's got his cigarettes and his amphetamines
He's got his coffee in the morning
But that construction site's got less
To give than he ever wanted

He's just a two steppin' monkey
A two steppin' monkey's all he'll ever be
And I'm just a two steppin' monkey too
So let's put him in the zoo with you and me
