THE KINKS - APEMAN

THE KINKS




I think I'm sophisticated
'cos Im living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybodys multiplying
Till they're walking round like flies man
So Im no better than the animals sitting in their cages
In the zoo man
'cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees
I am an ape man
I think Im so educated and Im so civilized
'cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation
And the crazy politicians
I dont feel safe in this world no more
I dont want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man

I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man I'm an ape man
I'm a king kong man I'm ape ape man
I'm an ape man

'cos 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 ape man
In mans evolution he has created the cities and
The motor traffic rumble, but give me half a chance
And I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
'cos the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man

I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a king kong man, I'm a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man

I look out my window, but I cant see the sky
'cos the air pollution is fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive
And make like an ape man
Come and love me, be my ape man girl
And we will be so happy in my ape man world

I'm an ape man, Im an ape ape man, Im an ape man
I'm a king kong man, Im a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man

I'll be your tarzan, you'll be my jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
And well sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man

I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, I'm an ape man
I'm a king kong man, Im a voo-doo man
I'm an ape man.

I dont feel safe in this world no more
I dont want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man.
