SOMETIMES IT’S HARD by Scott Detweiler

Sometimes it’s hard
When I ain’t got no friends
No one to call
No one to tell
But I keep on goin
Gotta keep on

Sometimes it’s rough
When my road just won’t end
No place to stop
No where to rest
But I keep on goin
Gotta keep on

Sometimes it hurts
When there’s nobody home
I hear the crowd
But I still feel alone
But I keep on goin
Got to keep on

MONKEY HILL by Scott Detweiler

Heard about a lady
Lives on St.Charles street
Got 17 pet monkeys
In a polka dot limosene
Every summer evening when the moon is filled
She talks em up to Monkey Hill

I’m not one for livin
All caged up in a zoo
All day chewin on bananas
Cause there ain’t nothin else to do
Wrote a letter to the lady and asked if she will
Take me up to Monkey Hill

The lady came to see me
After closing time
Said her monkey’s ran away from her
With 17 hot little monkey brides
So I said we should be married and that’s what we did
Got married on Monkey Hill
