lyrics

I'm a happy monkey in solid pastel color
swaths of paint from Japan
I'm a happy monkey in solid pastel color
swaths of paint from Japan

the river runs by like a people mover
trees wave bye to the rusty bridge
horizon opens and out in those hills
smokestacks, auto plants
and water towers

the old man says
the sun will rise high
the sun will rise high
light the sky
make a big sky

the old man says
the sun will rise high
lights the sky,
the sun will rise high
light the sky
make a big sky

turn around the corner, step into the picture
mangoes hang from a branch
looking down through I-beams at the murky water
sun reflects off the glass
receeding lines in a flattened landscape
blissful views of a peacock tree
fragments of vision through holes in the canvas
work space challenges boundary

the young man says
the tree will rise high
the tree will rise high
touch the sky
fill the big sky
