Proudest Monkey Lyrics

Swing in this tree
Oh I am bounce around so well
Branch to branch,
Limb to limb you see
All in a days dream
Im stuck
Like the other monkeys here
I am a humble monkey
Sitting up in here again
But then came the day
I climbed out of these...

    I think it's about the evolution of man, but can also be applied to the success of DMB.

    This song is about the road of Dave's life. He started out as just another person and soon became famous. "But then came the day I climbed out of these safe limbs Ventured away Walking tall, head high up and singing" He left his old life and came to a new one. He also wonders if he really wants this crazy new life. "I wonder do I want the simple,simple life that I once lived in well Oh things were quiet then In a way they were the better days" He loves making music and obviously is liking the path he chose.
