What a great, well-crafted song! Wonderful, poetic lyrics with vivid imagery. Great hook! Original angle. Smooth vocal performance with perfect pitch. Nice syncopation. Professional instrumental performances. Great recording with nice mix and good space. Well matched arrangement. Nice instrumental middle 8. Great song! Perfect score.

    - Brian McNulty

Another really really great track.......great lyrics to this song......great chorus........we all love the those guys in the houses of Parliament........

Lyrics

Box Of Monkeys
They're in the house now, they're getting so excited
Big decisions to make, so much in so little time
Single file now, they fill the leather benches' and one by one they turn
Grey man in a sombre suit, you think you- carry the world on your back
But you're so far off the mark and that's a fact

Business as usual you just- flip the lid see the box of monkeys
Doing tricks for us all to see
See what they did, silly box of monkeys, call that democracy

They're in their stride now, they take no prisoners
They need to let us know, just how committed they are
They're trading insults, they're feigning indignation, across the great divide
Cheap shots from the back bench fly- and find their target with ease
Just like the whip at night when he's down upon his knees

Let's be open and clear, I haven't broken the law
You can tell that he's lying, 'cos he's moving his jaw
He tried the real world, just didn't like what he saw
He felt the rain, saw the pain on the streets
Little man, turned and ran ,stuck his head in the sand, little man, better out of the way

All aboard now, jump on the gravy train
No explanation required, no need to get a receipt
Here come the mind games, here comes the double talk, no one can stop him now
He got a first class ride to his second home, tax payer picks up the bill
He thinks if he can't save the world, then just who will?
