You’re my favorite animal but I’m biased I guess
Because you look quite a bit like me
You’re not as eloquent, and you’ve a hairier chest
But I can’t pick my family
As I shake your hand I can feel your grip
And it’s definitely firmer than mine
They say a strong handshake shows the man is equipped
But if I called you a man, I’d be crossing a line
You’re an animal, you’re not like me
You’re just an animal, I have dominion over thee

You might be my cousin but I don’t know if you can be my friend
‘Cause you don’t seem the person on which when I’m in need I could depend
In fact when I look closer you don’t seem like a person at all
Do you have opinions? Do you keep morals? Do you even have a soul?
You’re an animal, you’re not like me
You’re an animal, oh what a silly thing to be

And when I look at you, do you know what I see?
I see me. I see me.
‘Cause when I look at you, yeah I can’t help but see myself
Next to you, in the tree

You’re my favorite animal but I’m biased I guess
Because you look quite a bit like me
And when I stand to admire you I can’t help but confess
That your mannerisms fill me with glee
You’re partial to bananas, and I’m munching on chips
That I’m sharing with the friend by my side
You peel it from the bottom, concentrating as you sit
Break it in two and pass half to the friend you’re beside

You’re an animal, you’re just like me
‘Cause I’m an animal, we’re of the same biology

Oh Mr. Monkey man, I’ve got a favor can’t you see
I was wondering if you would make a monkey out of me
