ORGAN GRINDER
                                                                                                                                                     
 (INTR0)

NOTHING SO SWEET
THAN
 THE GENTLE BEAT
OF A MONKEY TAPPING HIS FEET.
TO THE RHYTHM OF THE FISHING BOATS CALL
OH YES, TOOTIN' THROUGH THAT FOG
WELL THE MONKEY TIPS HIS HAT
TO A CRUISING BY CAT
WHO’S WONDERING WHERE
IS NEXT MEAL IS AT
A DOCKING BOAT
OR A TOURIST’S HAND
OR MAYBE A
TURN-DOWN GARBAGE CAN.
 
(chorus)
I SAID, OH ORGAN GRINDER AND MONKEY PLEASE STAY,

AND WIPE AWAY ALL OF MY OWN TEARS

I'VE HAD FOR SO MANY YEARS,
 TO THIS DAY
 
PLAYING HIS LAST
TO
A ONE MONKEY CAST
TO A PLEASANT AND STONEFACED CROWD.
WHO SLOWLY TURNING AND WALKING AWAY,
FROM TURNDOWN WRAPPERS WERE CIGAR BUTTS LAY.
(chorus)

 I SAID, OH ORGAN GRINDER AND MONKEY PLEASE STAY,
AND WIPE AWAY OH, ALL OF MY OWN TEARS
I HAD FOR SO MANY YEARS
TO THIS DAY

INSTRUMENTAL

(Repeat 1st Verse) 
I SAID NOTHING SO SWEET
THAN THE GENTLE BEAT
OF A MONKEY TAPPING HIS FEET
TO THE RHYTHM OF THE FISHING BOATS CALL
OH WELL TOOTIN' THROUGH THAT FOG
ALL THE MONKEY TIPS HIS HAT
TO A CRUISING BY CAT
 WHO’S WONDERING WHERE HIS NEXT MEAL IS AT     
 A DOCKING BOAT OR A TOURIST’S HAND
OR MAYBE A
TURN DOWN GARBAGE CAN
(chorus) 
I SAID OH, ORGAN GRINDER AND MONKEY, PLEASE STAY
AND WIPE AWAY OH, ALL OF MY OWN TEARS

I’VE HAD FOR ALL THESE YEARS
TO THIS DAY
TO THIS DAY
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
