Dance Monkey. 

As Tones explains: “One person ran past and stole my money. Someone else lent over and tried to play my keyboard. The whole crowd was drunk and rowdy. I said ‘Sorry this is it now.’ They started booing me. I was so frustrated. It showed me how people didn’t have any patience anymore. Replace the word ‘dance’ with ‘sing’, and that sums it up.”
