Apeman  Kinks

[D]  [D]  [D]  [D]  [D]  [A]  [A]    [D]   [E]   [A]               
[A]I think I'm sophisticated cos I'm living my life like a good Hom[E]osapien[Esus4]       [E]
But [A]all around me everybody's multiplying
Till they're wa[E]lkin' round like flies man  [Esus4]       [E]
So [D]I'm no better than the animals sitting in their ca[A]ges in the zoo man [Asus4]       [A]
Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees [E]I am an ape [A]man

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population 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 RIFF 1
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man

CHORUS #1:
[A]I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an [E]ape man
[A]I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an [E]ape man
Cos c[D]ompared to the sun that sits in the sky
[A]Compared to the clouds as they roll by
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies [E]I am an ape [A]man

D D D D D A A D E A RIFF 1
La la la la la, la la

BRIDGE:
[A]In man's evolution he has created the citie[E]s and the motor traffic rumble
[A]But give me half a chance and I'd be taking of[E]f my clothes and living in the jungle
Cos the o[D]nly time that I feel at ease is sw[A]inging up and down in a coconut tree
E A RIFF 1
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man

CHORUS #2:
I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an ape man
I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
The air pollution is a-foggin' up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive and make like an ape man

[D]La [D]la [D]la [D]la [D]la, [A]la [A]la   [D]   [E]   [A]

E (RIFF 2) A (RIFF 3)
Ah come and love me, be my ape man girl
E (RIFF 2) A RIFF 4 RIFF 1
And we will be so happy in my ape man world

CHORUS #3:
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 voo-doo man, oh I'm an ape man
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
We'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man RIFF 1

CHORUS #4:
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 voo-doo man, oh I'm an ape man
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 a distant shore and make like an ape man

[D]La [D]la [D]la [D]la [D]la,  [A]la [A]la   [D]   [E]   [A]
