MONKEY SONG

I'm just a simple monkey
Trapped by circumstances
Into a life of crime and trickery
Won't you just give me one more chance
To show you how reliable this monkey can be

I made a lot of trouble
Through diminished capacity
But I've been rehabilitated
A future sage I'll be

The monkey you
Is not the monkey you once knew
I've recognized what's before my eyes
Now let me start anew.
