Apeman

Kinks

 DDDDDAADEA
 AEEsus4E
 I think I'm sophisticated cos I'm living my life like a good Homosapien        
 A
But all around me everybody's multiplying
 EEsus4E
Till they're walkin' round like flies man          
 DAAsus4A
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages in the zoo man         
 EA
Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an ape 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:
 AE
 I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
 AE
 I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an ape man
 D
Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
 A
 Compared to the clouds as they roll by
 EA
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an ape man

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

BRIDGE:
 AE
 In man's evolution he has created the cities and the motor traffic rumble
 AE
 But give me half a chance and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
 DA
Cos the only time that I feel at ease is swinging 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

 DDDDDAADEA
 La la la la la, la la          

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

 DDDDDAADEA
 La la la la la,  la la
