"Apes Must Think We're Dumb"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

apes...must think we're so unwise
we've cluttered up our lives
unlike those hairy guys

here...the humans rose to fame
superior, its claimed
but do apes feel the same ?

dumber ?...hell, no...truth must be told here
dumber ?...hell, no...apes love their role, here
dumber ?...hell, no...they have more soul, dear
then...man...may

now...in trees they make the scene
they're peaceful and serene
their lives are sweet as dreams

all...these creatures understand
is mother nature's plan
i wish i weren't a man

dumber ?...hell, no...truth must be told here
dumber ?...hell, no...apes love their role, here
dumber ?...hell, no...they have more soul, dear
then...man...may

soon...we may wise up and find
these gentle creatures' minds
work better than mankind's

You know, the graphic novel "Probability Broach" over at www.bigheadpress.com has some sentiments in it very much like the ones in this song...
