Daniel Johnston - Like A Monkey In A Zoo lyrics

I'm chained to the wall I'm nothing at all And my eyes look into the sunset thinking of better things to do Like a monkey in a zoo The days go so slow I don't have no friends Except all 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 wasn't always like this Oh, but I never saw it coming I'm so alone But this is my home And the bars that surround me keep me from knowing any better Like a monkey in a zoo Throw me a peanut Laugh and make jokes But I've had enough peanuts and I'm 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 it's my fault But I want out And when i cry out nobody seems to understand Like a monkey in a zoo You say I'm cute You don't know how much that hurts You don't know how it feels to live in your own dirt Like a monkey in a zoo And it could happen to you You could be in my place Don't let yourself slip Don't keep egg on your face I used to be happy I can't remember those days But I sold my freedom for free room and board Like a monkey in a zoo
