"We Are Monkeys" as written by and Healy....
People think they're funny when they haven't the wit
Others think they're gorgeous but inside they feel shit
Many think they're brainy but they haven't a clue
And I think I'm clever 'cause I'm singing this to you

We are wrong, we are wrong
We are all so, so wrong
We are monkeys
We are false, we run true
We should be in the zoo with our uncles
And if you don't believe
Go and climb up a tree and you'll love it
You're a fool to believe anymore
So believe you're a monkey

All the clever monkeys telling us what to do
Telling us to stay in line and join the monkey queue
Thinking that they're special cause they went to private zoo
One day soon they're gonna end up in a monkey stew

    General CommentI had never actually heard this song untill I saw the name here on songmeanings (Monkeys!) and just couldn't resist.

    I normally hate when people feel all superior because they had the sudden realization that we are all just monkeys, and thus assholes because we act superior to monkeys. The line "And I think I'm clever cos I'm singing this to you" erases all these feelings for me. Cure song.
