Frankie D. said he got it
Straight from Roger Miller
Life's just like takin' candy
From a gorilla
I started thinkin' man
This ain't so tough
That's about the time
That the monkey showed up
Sometimes I can't find
My heart with both hands
I usually got my head stuck
Down in the sand
I start to feel like
I can't even breathe
What's the little breath of fresh air
Blowin' up my sleeve

Must be my baby hey hey hey
She can make the Mississippi River
Run the other way
Must be my baby just in time
How's she always know when
I'm about to lose my mind

Sometimes it feels like
Everything's a drag
I could not smile my way
Out of a wet paper bag
It gets so dark
That the clock stops tickin'
It's just like night and day
Was playin' chicken
I'm ridin' on the boiler of a long black train
Tryin' to find the brakes
In a drivin' rain
I got smokestack lightning' pourin' out the funnel
What's the little light at the end of the tunnel
