I'm in the looney bin
They finally caught up with me
I've got lots and lots of new friends
We're all in psychotherapy
And the real nice doctors
Say I should get used to it here
Cause they think I might not be cured
For a couple of hundred years


------- Author's Notes -------

It is really fun here on the weekends, because all my monkey friends come to visit. I play the piano in the day room while my monkey friends dance on the tables and throw banana peels all over the place!! The racket they make is deafening, but they are exellent dancers!!!!!
