i think i'm sophisticated
'cause i'm livin' my life like a good homosapien
but all around everybody's multiplyin'
and they're walkin' 'round like flies now
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 civilised 'cause i'm a strict vegetarian
but with the overpopulation 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, the city, 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 la la la

a man's evolution has created the city and the motor traffic rumble
but give me half a chance
and i'll be takin' off my clothes and livin' in the jungle
'cause the only time that i feel at ease
is swingin' up and down in the coconut tree
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 my window but i can't see the sky
the air pollution is foggin' up my eyes
i wanna get out of this city alive
and make like an apeman

la la la la la la la la la la

come on and love me, be my apeman girl
and we'd 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 tarzan, you be my jane
i'll keep you warm and you 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 wanna sail away to a distant shore
and make like an apeman

la la la la la la la la la la
