"Animal Boy" as written by Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Johnny Ramone....
Gonna kill and destroy
I'm not an animal boy
Why don't they understand
I'm not an ape man

Don't have brain damage
I'm not a wild savage
Don't push me around
Don't bring my head down

Animal boy
Animal boy
Animal boy

I'm not an imbecile
Don't treat me like an animal
I'm not a creature in the zoo
Don't tell me what to do

Animal boy
Animal boy
Animal boy

You don't know what it's like
You don't know how I feel
I don't have a monkey's brain
I am not an animal

You can't lock me in a cage
This ain't the Stone Age
Better get out of my way
Someone's gonna have to pay

Animal boy
Animal boy
Animal boy
Animal boy

    General CommentExactly! The Ramones got called a "stupid" band a lot, and some radio programmers wouldn't play them because they were a punk band. Here they defend themselves.

    And rock the hell out.
