I landed on a planet
not unlike my own.
Men were caged like beast
monkeys free to roam.
Soldier apes on horseback
soldier apes on foot.
Learned apes with orange hair,
give you dirty look.

Well you must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
On the planet of the apes!

Try and fight one ape
and much to my shagrin.
He began to speak to me
so I began to listen.

Well you must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
On the planet of the apes!

Realise this was terran soil.
This was to be man's fate.
Monkeys treating me like shit.
You stinking apes, you filthy apes.

Learn all their customs.
Never tell them no.
Ape shall not kill ape.
God help those who do.

You must fight to live,
You must fight to live,
You must fight to live
On the planet of the apes
