I think I'm sophisticated 'cause I'm living my life like a good homo sapiens.But all around me everybody's multiplying and they're walking round like flies man.
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in the cages in the zoo man.
'Cause compared to the flowers and the birds and the treesI am an apeman.
I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized 'cause I'm a strict vegetarian.
Apeman | The Kinks
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation and the crazy politicians I don't feel safe in this world no more.
I don't want to die in a nuclear warI want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an apeman.
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman.I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an apeman.
'Cause compared to the sun that sits in the sky, compared to the clouds as they roll by,
compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an apeman.
In man's evolution he's created the city and the motor traffic rumble.But give me half a chance and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle.'Cause the only time that I feel at ease is swinging up and down in the coconut trees.Oh what a life of luxury to be like an apeman. I'm an apeman...
I look out the window but I can't see the sky the air pollution is a-fogging eyes.I want to get out of this city alive and make like an apeman.
Oh come on and love me, be my apeman girl and we'll be so happy in my apeman world. I'm an apeman...I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane. I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane.We'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day, just like an apeman. I'm an apeman...
