Songtekst

I think I'm sophisticated 'cause I'm livin' my life
like a good homo sapien
But all around me everybody's multiplyin'
and they're walkin' '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 in the trees
I am an apeman

I think I'm so educated and I
'm so civilized 'cause I'm a strict vegetarian
With the overpopulation and inflation
and starvation and the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more,
I don't wanna die in a nuclear war
I wanna 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

La la la la la la la

In man's evolution he's created the city and the motor traffic rumble
But give me half a chance,
and I'll be takin' 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-ape man, 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 evolution is a-fuckin' up my eyes
I wanna get out of this city alive
And make like an apeman

La la la la la la la

Oh come on and love me,
Be my apeman girl
And we 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-ape man, 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 wanna die in a nuclear war
I wanna sail away to a distant shore
And make like an apeman

La la la la la la la
