  • Teaching at the school
    Feeling like a fool
    Tell me what I did wrong
    Everbody use to love my songs
    Now I'm just a teacher mum

    What a big mistake
    My taking in an ape
    Killed my rock 'n' rolling dreams
    The boy who loves a big tall trees and me
    Well I belong in ammity

    Maybe I'll play rock
    And then I'll play along
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Wake up the kid
    Good morning its breakfast
    I know you how you like your bananas
    Quit with the screeching
    Schools in an hour
    Well my dreams are dying
    You'll be multiplying
    You're gonna like your new school

    Shane doesn't know
    That very long ago
    When dad and I were still quite thin
    Oh we came upon a baby chimp
    Decided that we'd take it in
    Forgetting all our dreams
    We took him as it seems
    We had a little family
    For seven hundred bucks a week, I teach
    And it pays for all the food Shane eats
    And he eats a lot

    Maybe I'll play rock
    And then I'll play along
    Yeah, yeah, yeah

    Wake up the kid
    Good morning its breakfast
    I know you how you like your bananas
    Quit with the screeching
    Schools in an hour
    Well my dreams are dying
    You'll be multiplying
    You're gonna like your new school

    Well it could have been me
    Upon the stage
    Yeah it could have been me
    If it wasn't for the chimp in the cage
    Oh it could have been me
    Upon the stage
    Yeah it could have been me
    If it wasn't for the chimp in the cage
    Oh it could have been my
    Upon the stage
    It could have been me Writer/s: Brian D'Addario, Michael D'Addario
