"Monkey with a Drum" as written by and Joshua Jon Pyke....
When is it time to surrender?
A little monkey in a lion's den
A little monkey with a drum jumpin'
For their fun
Yeah I feel a little tender then

And when I am away remember
A cheap rhyme never fits the bill
'Cos I've been around the world
But I missed my girl
And I feel a little tender still

So tell me if you're feeling tender,
My baby, if you're feeling blue
I've got some money put away
For a great escape
And I could run for a girl like you
And I can make plans if you can
I know there's fear in being true

Maybe a monkey with a drum
I am to some,
But know I'm not that to you

And I can make plans if you can
You know we've gotta take a bird's
Eye view
And from way up here
Things are looking pretty clear
Above the clouds the skies are always
Blue, always blue

    General CommentI think it's talking about how he feels as if he is performing to please other people who threaten him, maybe career or friend/family wise and it hurts him. The second part is pretty self explanatory, it hurts him to be away from his love who sees him as something more than the rest of the world does.
