"Robots and Monkeys" as written by William Jonathan Brown and Samuel Dylan Murphy Preston....
Where have they gone?
Where have they gone?
All the days when we didn't know,
Right from wrong?

Now we're so grown up,
Just like we wanted to be,
Building up debts,
I won't be i won't be

What do you want to be,
A robot or a monkey? x2

What can you do?
What can you do,
Money has a way,
Of catching up with you,

Yeah yeah,
And now you work all day,
And you sleep all night,
And you work all day,
It's not right it's not right

What do you want to be,
A robot or a monkey? [Repeat: x2]

What do you want to be,
A robot or a monkey? [Repeat: x2]

    General CommentThey create these robots and they don't actually have normal lives (eg. 'building up debts', 'money has a way of catching up with you') and they will never experience 'normal' things like the examples given.

    Some Monkeys are tested on for drugs&&cosmetics, and never see sunlight, and never live their lives how monkeys should.

    Its basically saying would you rather live an 'un-normal' life, or live a painful one.

    (thats what I think anyway, probably not right...)

    General CommentNo, I think that this song means that you shouldn't give up on your childhood dreams just because you grew up.
