I think I'm sophisticated 'cause I'm living my life
But all around me everybody's multiplying and
So I'm no better than the animals sitting
'Cause compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees

'Cause I'm a strict vegetarian
And the crazy politicians
I don't want to die in a nuclear war

I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an apeman
Compared to the clouds as they roll by

And the motor traffic rumble
And living in the jungle
Is swinging up and down in the coconut trees

I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an apeman
The air pollution is a-fogging eyes

And we'll be so happy in my apeman world
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
We'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day, just like an apeman
I'm an apeman, I'm an ape, apeman, oh I'm an apeman
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an apeman
