There is no demo for this song.

Liner Notes

#needs_music #needs_collab
It has been a running theme throughout all my notes: musicians are often expected to play for free. I remember once in Paris seeing a monkey dance for tourists.

Lyrics

Monkey for sale

V1:
I’m the monkey
Dancing for you
You’ll clap
and tourist on.

Pc:
Leave my bucket empty
No pennies can buy my soul
Tonight, when we go to bed
The silence will be long.

C:
Monkey for sale
Monkey for sale
It sometimes feels like there’s not enough
monkeys for sale

V2:
I’m the monkey
You’re relying on
You’ll tap
And forget my song

PC:
C:

B:
Make a score sheet
Let the band play along
Tonight everything is free
Let’s celebrate the new year!
