Lady, I need a backup plan
I wanna get my needs out in the dirt, my air
Cause I've been, cerebro's...
And my head wants to go in to the amoral house...

And I wanna look out, I wanna bet l out
I wanna hear about, I don't wanna nod out
And I wanna look out, I wanna bet l out
I wanna hear about, I don't wanna nod out
And I wanna look out, I wanna bet l out
I wanna hear about, I don't wanna nod out

I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down

But why I am still looking for a golden fish
Tell me that I ought to to have a golden wish
Every time I look up at that blurry sun
All I think about is our bodies moving on
Everybody hope you get that special place
While you're dominated by the opened chance
Makes me wanna wonder how I even wrote this song
Doesn't... Almost everyone!

I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich

And lady, wanna be in my heart?
Was that the... My heart and my...
Get us in and make ways...
... Little things, but I'll be glad!

So I wanna look at
I don't wanna bet out
I don't wanna hear about
I don't wanna lie out
I don't wanna look at
I don't wanna bet out
I don't wanna hear about

I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down
I don't wanna knock you down

But why I am still looking for a golden fish?
Tell me that I ought to to have a golden wish
Every time I look up at that blurry sun
All I think about is...
Everybody hope you get that special place
While you're dominated by the opened chance

I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich

I like to rule, I like to rule
I like to rule, I like to rule
I like to rule, I like to rule

But why I am still looking for a golden fish?
Tell me that I ought to to have a golden wish
Every time I look up at that blurry sun
All I think about is our bodies moving on
Everybody hope you get that special place
While you're dominated by the opened chance
Makes me wanna wonder how I even wrote this song
Doesn't... Almost everyone!

Fish, fish, fish, fish!
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
I met a monkey rich
