The Lyrics

Stuck in ape city, I am a spaceman
Freedom's history for all humans
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
This is a world that used to be home
Now the apes rule and they are not like knomes
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

I'm chased by the apes
They're on the hunt, they're after us
There's violence and rape and there's no escape
From the planet of the apes
They try to have us chained in line
They're on the hunt, they're after us
Ape milk is not fine, it's not like wine
In the planet of the apes

Here are the first words I said to an ape,
"Get your hands off of me, you dirty ape!"
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do
All the apes call us "lousy human bastards"
And they make us bad banana custard
Do do do do do do do do do do do do do do do

I'm chased by the apes
They're on the hunt, they're after us
There's violence and rape and there's no escape
From the planet of the apes
They try to have us chained in line
They're on the hunt, they're after us
Ape milk is not fine, it's not like wine
In the planet of the apes

(The space man yells, "Wait a minute, this is home! YOOOOOOOOOU MAAAAAANIACS!")

I'm chased by the apes
They're on the hunt, they're after us
There's violence and rape and there's no escape
From the planet of the apes
They try to have us chained in line
They're on the hunt, they're after us
Ape milk is not fine, it's not like wine
In the planet of the apes

I'm chased by the apes
They're on the hunt, they're after us
There's violence and rape and there's no escape
From the planet of the apes
They try to have us chained in line
They're on the hunt, they're after us
Ape milk is not fine, it's not like wine
In the planet of the apes

I'm chased by the apes
They're on the hunt, they're after us
There's violence and rape...................
In the part where I mentioned bad banana custard, the custard probably has "monkey milk" in it.

I've been following your efforts and they are showing great inprovement. A couple things, it's "gnomes". And I don't remember any rape from either "Apes" movie. Don't put and idea in just because it rhymes.

Somebody's been having a little too much grape-juice-plus.

Helena-Bohnam Carter in the ape make-up? Sexy-or not sexy? My jury's still out on this one...(4,5,5)

I will be writing more "apes" songs(as well as the "Star Wars" ones) and I hope that they have at least a little bit more improvement than this parody.

On second thought, I don't believe that I'm gonna come up with another "apes" song.
