C. Hutchins, M. Hutchins

 

In the beginning, didn’t worry about the rent

Didn’t worry about the dollars that your girlfriend spent

You just wandered around the forest, eating nuts and that

And waiting to get devoured by some jungle cat

 

You see a monkey on the TV and you think that it’s bizarre

You’re just a four foot monkey that got a bit too smart

 

A monkey had an idea and he turned it into beer

Another thought of fire and another of a spear

Yeah, we are all superior to the guys left in the trees

Who didn’t learn to clean a pool or rake up fallen leaves

 

You see a monkey in the zoo and you make faces through the bars

You’re just a four foot monkey that learned to drive a car

 

Someday we’ll build a spaceship to visit other worlds

Or the perfect scented potion to make your straight hair curl

 

You see a monkey on the TV doing tricks just like a jerk

You’re just a four foot monkey that wears a shirt to work

 

We’re all, monkeys that got too smart
