I'm a People
by George Jones



There I was on the marquee a workin' for a livin'
I've been gettin' instead of a givin'
A hangin' by my tail a waitin' for the dinner bell puttin' humans off
Every day them fools rush in and lay down my cage and watch them grin

I put 'em all off I'd hum a little song and watch 'em all go tee-hee
But I spell a P a little bitty E Sweet bop bop bop shoo shoobie doobie doh
In a little round O
Now you add another P a big skinny L There's one more E

And you got a people that looks like me
Now a monkey don't have to go down town
And ask for a job and gettin' turned down
I'm mad at me I could smash me cause I'm a people

Now a monkey don't have to shoot and speak All he do is drink his fees
Oh me what luxury but I'm a people
Now I spell a P a little bitty E
Sweet bop bop bop shoo scoobie doobie doh

In a little round O
Now you add another P a big skinny L
There's one more E
And you got a creature that looks like me

Now if anyone knocked on my door today
There'd be a little sign says gone away
Down to the zoo diggin' you know who
`Cause I'm a people
Now I spell a P a little bitty E...
