#poetry #music - "big business monkey" daniel johnston

"big business monkey"
daniel johnston

nothing's funny
big business monkey
everything's money
you sell cheeseburgers
with that cashier's smile
he runs his house like
a burger king manager
and the only jokes he knows
are the ones that'll put you down

big business monkey
he'll take over the world
and you can have it now
but you can't take it with you
and everything you cling to
will rot
and everything you do
will be forgot
by everyone you ever tried to impress

album: Hi How Are You (1983)

fear not a basement movement or that you'll be discovered. keep the faith and the faithful will find you.
