The Lyrics

This is a first for me: a parody written solely from the lyric sheet as I couldn't face listening to the OS.. but I got the idea from a news article which was talking about a million-year-old somewhere between ape and human, and figured the parody was worth writing anyway.
Now I can think
I'll find the answers to everything
Mm but first I must
Invent a language, so I can say: yeah
Still need evolving a little
That's when I realize:

I'm not an ape
Not yet a human
What I suspect is
I'm Homo erectis
Not quite sapiens
I'm not an ape

There is no need to protect me
Be-ye-cause I
Learned to tie a rock to a stick on my own
I've cooked with fire, and I know how
To say more than ten diff'rent words

I'm not an ape
Not yet a human
What I think, still is
Not Homo habilis
Not Neanderthal
I'm not an ape

But if you look at me closely
Because I've drawn me in the cave
This "Homo" surely isn't gay...

I'm not an ape
I'm not an ape - still need a bit to evolve
Not yet a human
I'm not yet everything I'm going to be, yeah
All I need is time
Evolution'ry time...
Being hairy is fine
... it's fine
While Im in between
I'm not an ape
Not yet a human
And you
Can tell from my faeces
I'm a transitional species
Guess I'm in between

I'm not an ape

Oo-oo, Not yet a human

Great concept and execution Phil! Not quite anthropomorphic humor is right up my alley... really tickled my under-tubulated, heavily-trabeculated funny bone!
