The Lyrics

Let me tell ya what it's like to be
In a world controlled by chimpanzees
Gorilla soldiers always chasing me
Orangs all thinkin' that they're Socrates
Chimp-on

So many things that I'd rather do
Than be livin' in this monkey zoo
We're just their pets so I'm glad to say
Thank god Bob Barker ain't alive today

I'm Rockin' the Ape World
Just like Charleton Heston did
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
Nova hanging onto him
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
I'd make a break but I'm facing facts
That I ain't gonna be outrunnin' armed gorillas on horseback

Cornelius is smart but such a wimp
Zira's not bad looking for a chimp
Dr. Zaius is so truly crass
He can kiss my hairless human ass

This crazy place is out of whack
A Jane Goodall LSD flashback

I'm Rockin' the Ape World
Just like James Franciscus did
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
Does anyone remember him?
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
I'd make a break but I'm facing facts
That I ain't gonna be outrunnin' armed gorillas on horseback

On the run these days
The Forbidden Zone's approaching
But the enemy's encroaching
There's an army full of monkeys on the way
Enraged
Want to stick me in a cage
'Cause my great great great great Grandad
Put someones' great great great great Grandads onstage
Made 'em wear bellhop costumes
And dance around for money
It's really pretty funny

Need to get away
Before Dunston checks me in

Let me tell ya what it's like to be
In a world controlled by chimpanzees
Let me tell ya what it's like to be
In a world controlled by chimpanzees
Let me tell ya what it's like to be
In a world controlled by chimpanzees
Let me tell ya what it's like to be
In a world controlled by chimpanzees
It gets me real pissed and it makes me want to say
It gets me real pissed and it makes me want to say
It gets me real pissed and it makes me want to say
GET YOUR STINKIN' HANDS OFF ME YOU DAMNED DIRTY APES!

Just like Marky Wahlberg did
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
With the Funky Bunch backin' him
I'm Rockin' the Ape World
I'd make a break but I'm facing facts
That I ain't gonna be outrunnin' armed gorillas on horseback
Those apes
Yeah yeah
Rockin' the Ape World
Yeah Yeah
Rockin' the Ape World
Yeah Yeah

You better look out there's gonna be a sequel
You better look out there's gonna be a sequel
You better look out there's gonna be a sequel
