Lyrics
(Kraemer, MacNeil)

I'm feeling down
I'm acting grumpy
I'm a fool like everyone else.
I'm a falling down dancing monkey
I need to be by myself.

Should take a long walk out
through the desert
living in the rocks like a blue
bellied lizard
not come back until I'm dry and
weathered
then come back as a dancing wizard.

Feeling down my vision's hazy
I'm doomed like everyone else.
I'm driving all my people crazy
falling under evil spells.
I ought to go out and put myself together
out of all the rocks and snakes of
a feather.
Then I'd leave behind a limestone wizard
I might come back as a dancing lizard.

I don't know why I should be so haggard.
City lights hit me like a blizzard.
Ought to go back as far as I can
stagger
dance on the rocks like a wise
old lizard

Feeling down
Acting grumpy
I'm a fool like everyone else.
I'm a falling down dancing monkey
I need to be by myself.
