The man who made the movies
About monkeys and God
Wants all the boys and girls
To be packin' a rod
He thinks the world will be a better place
If everyone out in the human race
Carry the equipment that'll keep 'em safe
With just one little flaw
You gotta worry bout those crazy kids with the quick draw
While you're praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God

Yeah yeah
Alright
Yeah yeah
Alright

Wake up in the morning
Smell that San Francisco air!
I know it's gonna be a good day yeah yeah
Walk around without a care!
Golden gates embrace me
Yeah it really has it all!
A perfect day awaits me
With just one little flaw!
You gotta worry bout those crazy kids with the quick draw
While you're praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God

Oh yeah
Alright
Yeah yeah
Oh yeah yeah
Ooo...!

The man who made the movies
About monkeys and God
Wants everyone packin' in the USA
He smiles wide to applause
Now we're all gonna get our way!
Now we're all in charge of judgment day!
Now we get on our knees to pray!
With just one little flaw!
You've got to worry about the crazy kids with the quick draw!
While you're praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God
Oohh...!
Praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God
Oohh...!
Praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah!
Praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God
Praying to the man who made the movies about monkeys and God
Alright
Yeah yeah
Goodnight...

    Song MeaningAbout Monkeys and God is more aptly titled THE MAN who made the movies about monkeys and God. This song is a clever bit of writing by Joie Calio, of dada. He is writing about Charlton Heston, the actor who was in the Planet of the Apes, and Ten Commandments, where Heston played Moses.

    Heston was also the longtime head of the NRA and so this song, aptly I believe, references all the hardliners views about gun advocacy despite the social ills.

    This song is off Calio's first solo record.
