dance, monkey boy

Dance, monkey boy, come raise the bar
Don't place your bets upon a motherloving shooting star
Dance, monkey boy, chances are few
This is how I know dreams don't come true

I was sitting at my desk
Not as worried as the rest
As the teacher handed out the scores
Saw my test covered in red
"Oh didn't study did ya kid?"
And then she pointed me towards the door

If there's such a thing as luck in school
Chances are few
This is how I know dreams don't come true

Dance, monkey boy, come raise the bar
Don't place your bets upon a motherloving shooting star
Dance, monkey boy, chances are few
This is how I know dreams don't come true

(Now let's break it down)
Well she was standing by the bar
As I was playing my guitar
And I could see her smile from far away
After drinks I hit and miss
When I leaned in for a kiss
But then she turned her head as if to say

If you think you'll win my heart with songs
Chances are few
This is how I know dreams don't come true

Dance, monkey boy, come raise the bar
Don't place your bets upon a motherloving shooting star
Dance, monkey boy, chances are few
This is how I know dreams don't come true

Oh hear me singin', this is how I know, t
his is how I know dreams don't come true

Oh hear me singin', this is how I know, this is how I know dreams don't come true

Oh won't you hear me singin' how I know, this is how I know dreams don't come true

Oh won't you hear me singin' how I know, this is how I know dreams don't come true
