"Hard Monkeys" as written by and Alvin Lee....
Got no monkey on my back
And I'm never gonna crack

Cause it's a good life
Too good to lose
But it's a hard world
With the junkie blues

Got no street car called Desire
And I'll never light the fire

Cause it's a good life
Too good to lose
But it's a hard world
With the junkie blues
