Porcelain Monkey (Warren Zevon)
Submitted by Daniel Green

Intro: Em Em Am Em / Em D (x2)

Em                  Am         Em
He was an accident waiting to happen
 Em             D
Most accidents happen at home
 Em                      Am       Em 
Maybe he should've gone out more often
 Em                 D 
Maybe he should've answered the phone 
 C                       D
Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame'
        C                       D 
That's how he earned his regal sobriquet 
 C                D
Then he threw it all away
       Em                 Am Em
For a porcelain monkey 

    C                   D
He threw it away for a porcelain monkey
 C                    D
Gave it all up for a figurine
    C                  D 
He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas
         C       D 
And his face on velveteen 

From a shotgun shack singing Pentecostal hymns 
Through the wrought iron gates to the TV room 
He had a little world, it was smaller than your hand 
It's a rockabilly ride from the glitter to the gloom 
Left behind by the latest trends 
Eating fried chicken with his regicidal friends 
That's how the story ends 
With a porcelain monkey 

(Repeat Chorus)
(Repeat Intro)

Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame' 
That's how he earned his regal sobriquet 
Then he threw it all away 
For a porcelain monkey 

He threw it away for a porcelain monkey 
Gave it all up for a figurine 
He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas 
And his face on velveteen
