   A                                           A
|  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  |    I think I'm so - phisticated,
                                   E                 Esus4   E
'Cause I'm living my life like a good homo sapien,
     A
But all around me everybody's multiplying,
              E                             Esus4   E
And they're walking 'round like flies, man,
    D                                                A                   Asus4  A
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages in the zoo, man,
               A                                                 E       E7     A
'Cause com - pared to the flowers, and the birds, and the trees, I am an ape - man!


             A                                                E               Esus4  E
I think I'm so educated, and I'm so civilised, 'cause I'm a strict vegetarian,
              A
But with the over population, and inflation, and starvation,
          E                       Esus4  E
And the crazy poli - tici - ans,
    D                                       A
I don't feel safe in this world no more, I don't want to die in a nuclear war,
   A                                         E           E7     A
I want to sail away to a distant shore, and make like an ape - man!


 A                                                   E           Esus4   E
I'm an ape - man, I'm an ape, ape - man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
        A                                              E         Esus4   E
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a vood - doo man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
               D
'Cause com - pared to the sun that sits in the sky,
        A
Com - pared to the clouds as they roll by, compared to the bugs,
          A                 E       E7     A
And the spiders, and flies, I am an ape - man!


     (D)                      (E)      D   E   A
     La-la, la-la!  La - la - la!
e |---2--2---2--2----2----0----4---|---2---0---0----|

A                                         E
   In man's evolution he has created the city, and the motor traffic rumble,
A                                                E                  
   But, give me half a chance, and I'd be taking off my clothes, and living in the jungle,
            D                                   A
'Cause the only time that I feel at ease, is swinging up and down in a coconut tree,
A                            E          E7     A
Oh, what a life of luxury to be like an ape - man!


 A                                                   E           Esus4   E
I'm an ape - man, I'm an ape, ape - man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
        A                                              E         Esus4   E
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a vood - doo man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
   D
I look out the window, but I can't see the sky,
     A
The air pollution is a - fogging up my eyes,
   A                                       E           E7     A
I want to get out of this city alive, and make like an ape - man!

     
     (D)                      (E)      D   E   A
     La-la, la-la!  La - la - la!

                             E                              A
Oh, come on & love me...    ...be my apeman  girl,            & we'll be so...

    I'm an ape - man, I'm an ape, ape - man, oh, I'm an ape - man,

I'm a King Kong man, I'm a vood - doo man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
 D                                       A
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane, I'll keep you warm, and  you'll keep me sane,
       A                                         E           E7     A
We'll sit in the trees, and eat bananas all day just like an ape - man!


 A                                                   E           Esus4   E
I'm an ape - man, I'm an ape, ape - man, oh, I'm an ape - man,

I'm a King Kong man, I'm a vood - doo man, oh, I'm an ape - man,
    D                                       A
I don't feel safe in this world no more, I don't want to die in a nuclear war,
   A                                         E           E7     A
I want to sail away to a distant shore, and make like an ape - man!


     (D)                      (E)      E   E   A
