Buck – Barrel Of Monkeys lyrics

I fell into a barrel of monkeys; I tried real hard but I couldn't get the money
He's calling me baby but he ain't my honey
I fell into a barrel of monkeys

It started with a rumor and it ended with a gun and somewhere in the middle I got burned up by the sun
When I rose up like a phoenix I was feeling #1
It just all goes to show you it ain't over 'til it's done

Who what where and I don't know why but you're only as good as the drugs you buy
Another suicide on the 405, another night of drinking in
Another dive
There's a million dead stars in the night-time sky; I'd she'd a little tear but there's no time left to cry

I saw a giant head driving down hollywood boulevard!

I came from the land of ice and snow seeking fame and fortune where the plastic grows
Murder, earthquake, riot, fire--i tried to put it out
But it just fed my desire
I got a brand new name and a brand new nose
And the crowd keeps yelling "baby go, go, go!"

I fell into a barrel of monkeys; I tried so hard but I couldn't get the money
Love me two times except for sunday
I fell into a barrel of monkeys
