The Lyrics

I was thinking about doing this one, and then Johnny Carson died. Now I have to do this one. After all, there was that night in 1979 when he said, "Out of four billion people in this world, is there another one with a marmoset on his head?"
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)

I was walking the other day
and everything was going fine.
I met a marmoset named Billy Joe
and then I almost lost my mind.

Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)

My eyes were wide open
but all that I could see
was this little furry creature
jumping on top of me!

But I don't worry, 'cause...
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)

And then I said, someone will jump on you
like you just jumped on me, one day.
Then I might might find
I'll be the one laughing away!

So I don't worry, 'cause...
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.

(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Don't you worry!
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Don't you worry, worry, now!
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Don't you worry, worry, now!
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
Marmoset, there'll be days like this.
There'll be days like this, my Marmoset.
(Marmoset, Marmoset!)
(repeat 'til fade)

I'm already taking Sudafed for a very nasty cold, Kristof. That, plus the world's greatest drug, Vicodin... It's such a lovely drug...
