Adrian, Adrian

I don't think I ever knew anyone named Adrian.

For the longest time I associated the name with Sylvester Stallone's character Rocky Balboa in "Rocky" imitating Marlin Brando as Stanley Kowalski in Tennesse Williams' "A Streetcar Named Desire".

Lately I associate it with Tony Shalhoub's Adrian Monk.
It's a jungle out there
Disorder and confusion everywhere
No one seems to care. Well I do.
Hey, who's in charge here?
It's a jungle out there
Poison in the very air we breathe
Do you know what's in the water that you drink?
Well I do, and it's amazing
People think I'm crazy, 'cause I worry all the time
If you paid attention, you'd be worried too
You better pay attention
Or this world we love so much might just kill you
I could be wrong now, but I don't think so. It's a jungle out there

She calls me Monk all the time, just because I like to line my peas up on the plate or something.
