"Monkey Boy"

Cuando la banda Stereophonics recién empezaba a sonar con mayor grado en UK, un periodista los acompaño durante su gira, posteriormente este mismo, en una edición llamo a Kelly Jones "Monkey Boy" en repetidas ocasiones, con la intención de pintarlo como un tipo tonto.. En el siguiente disco de la banda ('Just Enough Education To Perform'), sacaron un tema llamado "Mr.Writer" (uno de los highlights del trabajo por lo demás) y, échenle una mirada rápida a las lyrics..

You line them up, look at your shoes,
You hang names on your wall, then you shoot them all,
You fly around in planes that bring you down, to meet me,
Who loves you? like me crashing to the ground,

Are you so lonely? you don't even know me,
But you'd like to stone me,
Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home,

I used to treat you right, give you my time,
But when I turned my back on you,
Then you do what you do,
You've just enough, in my own view, education to perform,
I'd like to shoot you all,

And then you go home, with you on your own,
What do you really know?
Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home,

And then you go home, with you on your own,
What do you even know?
Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it is?
Why don't you tell it like it really is?
Before you go on home,

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?
Why don't you tell it like it always is?
Before you go on home.

Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?
Why don't you tell it like it always is?
Before you go on home.

Es una dedicación melancólica con toques de odio, una canción que de seguro hace pensar hasta el día de hoy al "Sr. Escritor", notable.. En fin, el coro que acompaña este pedazo de tema lo dice todo: "Mr. Writer, why don't you tell it like it really is?" Claro, el "Sr. Escritor" no dijo como realmente eran las cosas, ya que con este mismo tema, Kelly Jones demuestra no ser un "Monkey Boy" sino, un talentoso compositor..
