The Organ Grinder

If it's just the organ grinder with his little pet monkey give him a penny and send him on. If it's just the organ grinder coming around to tell me what time it is, tell him I bought a clock. I had a tolerance for the old man and his little dressed up monkey, but day after day the same old tune, I grow bored. He was quaint once but now I'm seated comfortably. If it's just the organ grinder, give him a penny, or two cents, send him on to the next house.
