4/15/2009 alternate lyrics

I grew from monkey into man
then I crushed fifteen/fifty 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

But 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 womb, heaven

A king of men, it makes no sense
and I bow to the priest, while I worship the witch
it's why I am
the only one that make you smile
why I am
a snake/stake in the woodpile
why I am
still here dancing with the GrooGrux king

Out of my head and into the womb
so when my ghost takes me from you
you can remember the fool that I am
don't cry baby, don't cry

The lose and the win of the world
wrong and right, it's the whim the world
it's the you and the me of the world
only one way out of the world
it's the lose and the win of the world
wrong and right, it's the end of the world
it's the you and the me of the world
only one way out of the world

That's why I am
unlikely to agree
that's why I am
I'm out of my monkey tree
why I am
still here dancing with the GrooGrux king
I'll be drinking big whiskey, while we dance and sing
when my story ends, it's gonna end with him
heaven or hell - I'm going there with the GrooGrux king

why I am
the apple of your pretty eye
a snake/stake in the woodpile
why I am
still here dancing with the GrooGrux king

Out of my head, and into the womb
so when my ghost takes me from you
You can remember the fool that I am
Don't cry baby, don't cry.
Why I Am
main lyrics
I grew from monkey into man
then I crushed fifteen million with a wave of my hand
I grew drunk on water turned into wine
till 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
oh, when I bow to the priest while I worship the witch

But it's why I am always the one to make you smile
why I am, I'm still a snake in the woodpile
it's 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't remember the fool that I am
don't cry, baby, don't cry

The lose and the win of the world
wrong and right, us and them of the world
it's the you and the me of the world
but only one way out of the world
it's the lose and the win of the world
wrong and right, us and them of the world
it's 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

Why I am the apple of your pretty eye
why I am a snake in the woodpile
it's 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't remember the fool that I am
don't cry, baby, don't cry
