Ape Man by Ray Davies

I think I'm sophisticated 'cause I'm living my life like a good homosapien
But all around me everybody's multiplying and walking 'round like flies man
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages in the zoo man
'cause compared to the flowers and birds and the trees I am an ape man

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized
'cause I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the overpopulation 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 war
I want to sail away to distant shore And make like an ape man



*I'm and ape man I'm an ape ape man
I am an ape man I'm a King Kong man I'm a voodoo man I'm an ape man

'Cause compare to the sun that sits in the sky
compared the clouds as they roll by
compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an ape man

In man's evolution he has invented 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
'cause 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 look out my window but I can't see the sky
the air pollution is fogging up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive and make like an ape man

Come on and love me be my ape man girl
and we'll be so happy in my ape man world *
I'll be your Tarzan you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you keep me sane
And we'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day just like an ape man *

I don't feel safe in this word no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man *

(with appologies to Ray) I don't feel safe and that's a fact
I don't want to die in a terrorist attack
I want to set the clock way way back and make like an ape man *




Hippy from Olema by "Banana" Lowell Levinger of the Youngbloods
based on Merle Haggard's Okie from Muskogee

well I'm proud to be a hippy from Olema where we're friendly to the squares and
all the straights we still take in strangers if they're ragged we can't think of anyone to hate

we don't watch commercials in Olema we don't buy the plastic crap they sell
we still wear our hair long like folks used to and we bathe often, therefore we don't smell

well I'm proud to be a hippy from Olema where we're friendly to the squares and all the
straights we still take in strangers if they're ragged we can't think of anyone to hate

we don't throw our beer cans on the highway we don't slight a man because he's black
we don't spill our oil out in the ocean ’'cause we love birds and fish too much for that

and I'm proud to be a hippy from Olema where we're friendly to the squares and
all the straights we still take in strangers if they're Haggard in Olema, California, Planet Earth


Ray, Jesse, and Merle so far I haven't made penny off your tune but the day I do I'm running to the bank to send you your fair share, really man I believe in that kinda stuff.
