  1. A long time ago, our point of view
    Was broadcast by Mr. Bartholomew
    And now the world is full of sorrow and pain
    And it’s time for us to speak up again

    You’re slack and sorry
    Such an arrogant brood
    The only purpose you serve is to bring us our food
    We sit here staring at your pomp and pout
    Outside the bars we use for keeping you out

    You’ve taken everything that you wanted
    Broke it up and plundered it and hunted
    Ever since we said it
    You went and took the credit
    It’s been headed this way since the world began
    When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man

    Monkey to Man

    Every time man struggles and fails
    He makes up some kind of fairytales
    After all of the misery that he has caused
    He denies he’s descended from the dinosaurs

    Points up to heaven with cathedral spires
    All the time indulging in his base desires
    Ever since we said it
    He went and took the credit
    It’s been headed this way since the world began
    When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man

    Monkey to Man

    Big and useless as he has become
    With his crying statues and his flying bomb
    Goes ’round acting like the chosen one
    Excuse us if we treat him like our idiot cousin

    He hangs up flowers and bells and rhymes
    Hoping to hell someone’s forgiven his crimes
    Fills up the air with his pride and praise
    He’s a big disgrace to our beastly ways

    In the fashionable nightclubs and finer precincts
    Man uses words to dress up his vile instincts
    Ever since we said it
    He went and took the credit
    It’s been headed this way since the world began
    When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man
