Why I Am - Dave Matthews Band

I grew from monkey into man
Then I crushed 15 million with a wave of my hand
I grew drunk on water turned into wine
'Til I was slave and master at the same damn time

It's why I am
It's why I am
Why I am still here dancing with the Groogrux King

Out of my head and
Into the room
Hello

A king of men it makes no sense
When I bow to the priest
While I worship the witch

It's why I am always the one to make you smile
It's why I am still a snake in the woodpile
Why I am still here dancing with the Groogrux King

Out of my head and
Into the room
So when my ghost
Takes me from you
You can remember the
Fool that I am
Don't cry baby
Don't cry

It's the lose and the win of the world
Wrong and right us and them of the world
The you and the me of the world
Only one way out of the world

It's why I am unlikely to agree
It's why I am climbing out of my monkey tree
Why I am still here dancing with the Groogrux King
We'll be drinking big whiskey while we dance and sing
And when my story ends it's gonna end with him
Heaven or hell I'm going there with the Groogrux King

It's why I am the apple of your pretty eye
It's why I am a snake in the woodpile
Why I am still here dancing with the Groogrux King

Out of my head and into
The room so when my
Ghost takes me from you
You can remember the fool
That I am
Don't cry baby don't cry
