"White Monkey" as written by and Danielle Spencer....
Some people are magic
I knew a wizard once
Waved a spell over everyone
Walked on stage and became the sun
Guitar in hand he sang to me
The little girl he'd rarely see
I remember watching all the women fighting for his smile
I remember asking him why he couldn't stay a while
Hey why can't you stay a while

(He said) Come here now, I do love you
But I love my freedom too
It‚s just the way it has to be
Standing still just isn't me
Then he gave me a white monkey
I can still recall his laughter as it sang New York, New York
He said there's no-one like Sinatra

Some people are magic
I kept a book and filled it with his life
Different barbie-doll each week
Sold out concerts no more seats
Health alert for music star
Drank too much and crashed his car

(He said) Come here now, I do love you
But I love my freedom too
It‚s just the way it has to be
Standing still just isn't me
Then he gave me a white monkey
I can still recall his laughter as it sang New York, New York
He said there's no-one like Sinatra

Try to touch it, c-catch it
There's just no way you can snatch it
T-touch it, c-catch it
There's just no way you can catch it

Some people are magic
I knew a wizard once
Five months I had him
Best months of my life
He almost became real

Come here now, I do love you
But I love my freedom too
It's just the way it has to be

    General CommentThe track was one of the big songs of 2002. A nice tune. I was impressed with the rest of the album. Spencer is married to Russell Crowe
