I grew from monkey into man
Then I crushed fifteen million with a wave of my hand
I grew drunk on water turned into wine
Til I was slave and master at the same damn time

It's why I am, It's why I am, Why I am...
Still here dancing with the GooGrux King

Out of my head and into the room, hello

A king of men it makes no sense
When I bow to the priest while I worship the witch

But it's why I am, always the one to make you smile
Why I am, still a snake in the woodpile
Why I am, still here dancing with the GooGrux King

Out of my head and into the room
So when my ghost takes me from you
You can remember the fool that I am
Don't cry baby don't cry...

It's the lose and the win of the world
Wrong and right us and them of the world
The you and me of the world
Only one way out of the world

It's why I am, unlikely to agree
It's why I am, climbing out of my monkey tree
Why I am, still here dancing with the GooGrux King
We'll be drinking big whiskey while we dance and sing
And when my story ends it's gonna end with him
Heaven or Hell I'm going there with the GooGrux King

It's why I am, the apple of your pretty eye
It's why I am, a snake in the woodpile
Why I am, still here dancing with the GooGrux King

Out of my head and into the room
So when my ghost takes me from you
You can remember the fool that I am
Don't cry baby don't cry
