The Organ Grinder’s Monkey I'm just a monkey chained to an organ grinder's lap I'll dance for you, I'll dance for you you'll quietly clap you'll crowd me round, you'll crowd me round like a rabbit caught in a trap. Do you take delight in my plight does it make you feel alive? is your guilt assuaged by the nickel wage you toss in my tin cup? Can't you see the nylon strings that tie you to your master's hand? I'm just a monkey chained to an organ grinder's lap I'll dance for you, I'll dance for you you'll quietly clap you'll crowd me round, you'll crowd me round like a rabbit caught in a trap. Will there be a day when I can play the organ you so carefully tend? Will you cut me loose from your rhinestone noose to play the music I've penned? I'm just a monkey chained to an organ grinder's lap I'll dance for you, I'll dance for you you'll quietly clap you'll crowd me round, you'll crowd me round like a rabbit caught in a trap.
