Like A Monkey In The Zoo

 

Iím chained to the wall

Iím nothing at all

And my staring at the sunset

Thinking of better things to do

Like a monkey in a zoo

 

The days go so slow

And I donít have no friends

Except for all of these people

Who want me to do tricks for them

Like a monkey in a zoo

 

And it could happen to you

You could be in my place

No it wasnít all ways like this

Oh, but I never coming

 

Iím so alone

But this my home

And the bars that surround me

Keep me from knowing any better

Like a monkey in the zoo

 

Throw me a peanut

Laugh and make jokes

But I had enough peanuts

And Iím ready to croak

Like a monkey in a zoo

 

You come to look at me

You seem so amused

But things would look different

If you were in my shoes

 

I know itís my fault

But I want out

And when I cry out

Nobody seemed to understand

Like a monkey in a zoo

 

You say Iím cute

You donít know how much that hurts

You donít know how it feels

To live in your own dirt

Like a monkey in the zoo

 

And it could happen to you

You could be in my place

But donít let yourself slip

Donít keep egg on your face (?)

 

I use to be happy

I can remember those days

But I sold my freedom

For free room and board

Like a monkey in a zoo

 

CHORDS (thanks to Maddy)

 

         verses -   G D C

I'm chained to the wall.

I have nothin' at all.
And my eyes look into the sunset thinkin' of better things to do,
Like a monkey in a zoo.

 chorus -               
G G7

                        C G/B Am

And it could happen to you.
             G

You could be in my place.
G7                   C G/B Am

No it wasn't always like this,
                   D7

But I never saw it comin'.
