It’s a Crazy World

From the Album  Special Days

There’s a monkey on the line, there a goat up a tree
There’s a dog in my way and he won’t look at me
Is this my life, or is it a dream?
There’s a woman in the water and no one in the boat
A man in the junkyard trying to find his vote
It’s the damnest thing, I ever did see

Chorus
It’s a crazy world, crazy world
It’s a crazy world, crazy world

There’s a bull in the corner trying to start a fight
There’s an ostrich in the bar trying to argue black is white
Is this my life, or is it a dream?
There’s a gravy powered train that no one can get off
An army of rejections queueing at the trough
It’s the damnest thing, I ever did see

There’s a lamb in the park, mourning for his wife
There’s an eagle in the courtroom demanding all his rights
Is this my life, or is it a dream?
There’s a fox in the casino with his fingers crossed
Keeping all his winnings and giving us what he’s lost
It’s the damnest thing, I ever did see

It’s a crazy world, crazy world
Our enemies are innovative and resourceful
It’s a crazy world, crazy world
And so are we
It’s a crazy world, crazy world
They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people

It’s a crazy world, crazy world
And neither do we
It’s a crazy world, crazy world
And neither do we
And neither do we
And neither do we

THE STORY BEHIND THE SONG

Of all the weird first lines that came to me, this must be the weirdest, “There’s a monkey on the line.”
How was I supposed to build a song around that? I still have no idea whether the monkey is on a telephone line or a railway line but if it’s a crazy world it doesn’t matter, does it?
I would like to thank one of my favourite public speakers, George Bush, for making an appearance at the end of this song.
