Monkey (go Home Now) (Dear Reader)

Galileo, marrige of Figaro You have shown the world where we ought to go Mother, Mahatma, Madiba, together forever Wondrous things beyond what I can understand The television where I watched a Doctor grow a human hand Great woman and men You can say that again You are nothing like them What does it take to be great, is it fate? What does it take to be great, is it fate? What it takes to be great is a tortured state As a child you drew up an impressive list Astronaut, fire-woman, archaeologist Something that mattered Oh Darling, you had it what happened? What does it take to be great, is it fate? What does it take to be great, is it fate? What it takes to be great is a tortured state And fate So you can home Why would you want to be great anyway? Why would you want to be great anyway? What it takes to be great is a tortured state And I know you've got that made But fate Yes fate You can go home now You can go home
