The Lyrics

Well, man created town from a swamp to sleaze in it,
and men go after newspapers that unmask it.
So you have to admit they’ve devolved a long way
since tree-swinging, flinging feces.

They’re non-charming monkeys
and harmful monkeys.
Cerebral function don’t abound—
they drag their knuckles on the ground,
the harmful monkeys.

They ain’t discovered: recorded is all their bullshittin’.
So the rubbish they spout next day is “Daily Show” hittin’.
These grifters down in D.C.
give you, as you soon will see,
a shiv that’s placed firmly in the back.

They’re the harmful monkeys
and charmless flunkeys.
The evidence is plain to see
as they’re posturing on the TV,
the smarmy monkeys.

We find there’s cavemen from the stone age
who have made it to the modern world. . .
shit flung in Congressional record.

So you have to admit they’ve devolved a long way,
so far that they fling in D.C.

They’re the charmless monkeys
and bought-off flunkeys.
The evidence is plain to see:
simians fling feces in D.C.,
the harmful monkeys.
