Lyrics — the Classics Apeman

Sure seems appropriate for these days…

I think I’m sophisticated ’cause I’m living my life
Like a good homo sapiens
But all around me everybody’s multiplying and
They’re walking round like flies man
So I’m no better than the animals sitting
In the cages in the zoo man
‘Cause compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an apeman
 
I think I’m so educated and I’m so civilized
‘Cause I’m a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I don’t feel safe in this world no more
I don’t want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an apeman
 
I’m an apeman
I’m an ape, apeman
Oh I’m an apeman
I’m a King Kong man
I’m a voodoo man
Oh I’m an apeman
‘Cause compared to the sun that sits in the sky
Compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies
I am an apeman
 
In man’s evolution he’s created the city
And the motor traffic rumble
But give me half a chance and I’d be taking off my clothes
And living in the jungle
‘Cause the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in the coconut trees
Oh what a life of luxury
To be like an apeman
 
I’m an apeman
I’m an ape, apeman
Oh I’m an apeman
I’m a King Kong man
I’m a voodoo man
Oh I’m an apeman
I look out the window but I can’t see the sky
The air pollution is a-fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an apeman
 
Oh come on and love me
Be my apeman girl
And we’ll be so happy
In my apeman world
 
I’m an apeman
I’m an ape, apeman
Oh I’m an apeman
I’m a King Kong man
I’m a voodoo man
Oh I’m an apeman
I’ll be your Tarzan
You’ll be my Jane
I’ll keep you warm and you’ll keep me sane
We’ll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an apeman
 
I’m an apeman
I’m an ape, apeman
Oh I’m an apeman
I’m a King Kong man
I’m a voodoo man
Oh I’m an apeman
I don’t feel safe in this world no more
I don’t want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an apeman
