Should've arrived a bit later
Now I'm lighting a cigarette 
And I don't even want it

Oh but the whisky is cooling me off
Can't seem to shake off the uncomfortableness
So I pretend

A primate in the corner
Don't know what he's done wrong
A primate in the corner
My performance nauseates me oh so
Just want to hit and run
Oh, I'm waiting

And here comes the next cigarette
And with more shame than the last
Oh but it musn't show

But all the eyes are on me now
Judging me by some rules
I did not agree upon.

A primate in the corner
Don't know what he's done wrong
A primate in the corner
My performance nauseates me oh so
Just want to hit and run
Oh, I'm waiting

Now I'm reaching for the telephone
Staring back at a screen
Pretending something is going on

But you can see right through me now
Well ain't that hard to spot 
If you have been there too.

A primate in the corner
Don't know what he's done wrong
A primate in the corner
My performance nauseates me so much
Just want to hit and run, run, run
Oh, I'm waiting
