Porcelain monkey


by Warren Zevon. Buy album CD: Life'll Kill Ya


Warren Zevon and Jorge Calderon, Zevon Music BMI/Googolplex Music BMI

He was an accident waiting to happen
Most accidents happen at home
Maybe he should've gone out more often
Maybe he should've answered the phone

Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame'
That's how he earned his regal sobriquet
Then he threw it all away
For a porcelain monkey

He threw it away for a porcelain monkey
Gave it all up for a figurine
He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas
And his face on velveteen

From a shotgun shack singing Pentecostal hymns
Through the wrought iron gates to the TV room
He had a little world, it was smaller than your hand
It's a rockabilly ride from the glitter to the gloom

Left behind by the latest trends
Eating fried chicken with his regicidal friends
That's how the story ends
With a porcelain monkey

He threw it away for a porcelain monkey
Gave it all up for a figurine
He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas
And his face on velveteen

Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame'
That's how he earned his regal sobriquet
Then he threw it all away
For a porcelain monkey

He threw it away for a porcelain monkey
Gave it all up for a figurine
He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas
And his face on velveteen

  1. I was in the house when the house burned down
  2. Life'll kill ya
  3. Porcelain monkey
  4. For my next trick i'll need a volunteer
  5. I'll slow you down
  6. Hostage-o
  7. Dirty little religion
  8. Back in the high life again
  9. My shit's fucked up
  10. Fistful of rain
  11. Ourselves to know
  12. Don't let us get sick
