Laurie Anderson Monkey's Paw Lyrics

Last updated:

Well I stopped in at the Body Shop Said to the guy: I want stereo FM installed in my teeth And take this mole off my back and put it on my cheek. And uh...while I'm here, why don't you give me some of those high-heeled feet? And he said: Listen there's no guarantee Nature's got rules and Nature's got laws but listen look out for the monkey's paw And I said: Whaaat? He said: The gift of life it's a twist of fate It's a roll of the die It's a free lunch A free ride But Nature's got rules and Nature's got laws And if you cross her look out! It's the monkey's paw It's sayin: Haw haw! It's saying Gimme five! It's sayin: Bye bye! I know a man he lost his head He said: The way I feel I'd be better off dead. He said: I got everything I ever wanted Now I can't give it up It's a trap, just my luck! The gift of life it's a leap of faith It's a roll of the die It's a free lunch A free ride The gift of life it's a shot in the dark It's the call of the wild It's the big wheel The big ride But Nature's got rules and Nature'
s got laws And if you cross her look out! It's the monkey's paw You better Stop! Look around! Listen! You- could- be- an- oca- rina- salesman- going- from- door- to- door. Or- would- you- like- to- swing- on- a- star- and- carry- moon- beams- home? Or- next- time- around- you- could- be- a- small- bug- Or- would- you- like- to- be- a- fish? The gift of life it's a twist of fate It's a roll of the die it's a free lunch A free ride The gift of life it's a shot in the dark It's the call of the wild It's the big wheel The big ride But Nature's got rules and Nature's got laws And if you cross her look out! It's the monkey's paw It's singin': Gimme Five! It's singin': Bye Bye!
