A man stops in a little town after a long drive, looking for a place to have a big cold glass of beer. He goes onto the local bar, which is completely empty, except for a blind pianist, who is playing some ragtime tunes. he sits down at the bar, and from the back a bartender appears.
“What do you want?” the bartender asks rather hostile.
“I’d like a big, cold glass of beer please”.
Without another word, the bartender pours him a large beer, slams it on the bar and returns to the back. All the while the blind piano player is still playing on this old worn down honky-tonk piano.
Then, as the man picks up his glass to have a drink, from behind the bar comes a little monkey, that jumps onto the bar, gets on the edge of the glass and starts washing its balls in the beer.
This goes on for about 5 seconds. The monkey jumps off the glass and disappears behind the bar again.
The guy can hardly believe what just happened and looks around if anybody else saw this, but it’s only him and the blind piano player.
So he walks over to the piano, and says to the guy:
“Do you know there was a monkey on my glass washing his balls in my beer?.”
The pianist stops playing, pauses for a moment and says:
“The lyrics sound familiar, but i can’t remember the melody.”
