The Lyrics

For Harambe, the Cincinnati zoo gorilla killed awhile back.
And by the Western lowland
Child is wildly shaken
Human violence caused ape silence
But were we mistaken?
But, you see, hominidae
You are not my species
At your head, at your head
They aimed rifles

With their guns and their sights
And their sights and their guns
In your head in your head we are crying

In your head
Now you're dead
Harambe, Harambe, Harambe, ei, ei
They shot your head
Now you're dead
Harambe, Harambe, Harambe ei, ei, ei, oh do do do do do do do do

That kid's mother or another
Should have watched him over
When a toddler falls in water
We must be mistaken

We're not your kin, said old Darwin
From your head, from your head
You're still bleeding
With their guns and their sights
And their sights and their guns
In your head, in your head now you're dying

In your head
Now you're dead
Harambe, Harambe, Harambe, ei, ei
They shot your head
Now you're dead
Harambe, Harambe, Harambe ei, ei, ei, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ei ei oh
