A man named Darwin had a revelation
He said all life evolved from the confusion
He had a theory: He made some people nervouse
When he came to the embarrassing conclusion

We come from from monkeys, We're not so special
We've only got a little extra DNA
The chimpanzees are very close to us
Australopithecus? He's not so far away.

We come from monkeys, swinging' the the trees
A little bit of monkey inside you and me
Monkey in the middle, monkey on your back
It's a fundamental problem, but a scientific fact.
We come from monkeys

The feeble minded said Creation was the answer
They got upset, their nose got out of joint.
They say we're missing the monkey in the middle
They're picking nits, it kinda proves the point.

You're not so hairy, you haven't got a tail
You're not adapted for living in a tree
But if you care to count up all your chromosomes
You're ninety eight point four percent a chimpanzee

We come from monkeys, swinging' the the trees
A little bit of monkey inside you and me
Monkey in the middle, monkey on your back
It's a fundamental problem, but a scientific fact.
We come from monkeys

Double helix monkey bars, feel the primal beat
Six million years we've been walking on our feet
A barrel full of monkeys, swinging from the family tree

We don't wanna start a social revolution
We just wanna talk about some monkey evolution
But the knuckle-draggin' stool-flingin' fools just
Don't wanna see

We come from monkeys

I you can't handle the thought of evolution
You might just call it intelligent design
But if the Universe keeps on evolving
Then maybe you should just evolve a bigger mind

We come from monkeys, swinging' the the trees
A little bit of monkey inside you and me
Monkey in the middle, monkey on your back
It's a fundamental problem, but a scientific fact.
We come from monkeys

Monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey do
Monkey me, monkey you
Let's all face it
It's all true, we come from monkeys
