Monkey gone to heaven

Since I started working for Greenpeace certain song lyrics have taken on a bit more meaning. Like these

There was a guy
an under water guy who controlled the sea
got killed by ten million pounds of sludge
from New York and New Jersey
This monkey's gone to heaven

The creature in the sky
got sucked in a hole
now there's a hole in the sky
and the ground's not cold
and if the ground's not cold
everything is gonna burn
we'll all take turns
i'll get mine, too
This monkey's gone to heaven

If man is five
Then the devil is six
And if the devil is six
Then god is seven

This monkey's gone to heaven

Good isn't it? Plus I've just bought Doolittle, and it's a damn fine album. Indeed as the customer reviews on Amazon make clear, it's also one of the most influential records of the last twenty years.
