EA long time ago, our point of view Was broadcast by Mr. Bartholomew And now the world is full of sorrow and pain And it's time for us to speak up again You're slack and sorry Such an arrogant brood The only purpose you serve is to bring us our food We sit here staring at your pomp and pout A7 Outside the bars we use for keeping you out B7 You've taken everything that you wanted Broke it up and plundered it and hunted Ever since we said it You went and took the credit It's been A7 headed this way since the world began When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man E E7 A B7 Monkey to Man E Every time man struggles and fails He makes up some kind of fairytales After all of the misery that he has caused He A7 denies he's descended from the dinosaurs B7 Points up to heaven with cathedral spires All the time indulging in his base desires Ever since we said it He went and took the credit It's been A7 headed this way since the world began When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man E E7 A B7 Monkey to Man D Big A and useless as he has become With his D A crying statues and his flying bomb D Goes A 'round acting like the chosen one Dsus4 Excuse us if we treat him like our idiot cousin E He hangs up flowers and bells and rhymes Hoping to hell someone's forgiven his crimes Fills up the air with his pride and praise He's a A7 big disgrace to our beastly ways B7 In the fashionable nightclubs and finer precincts Man uses words to dress up his vile instincts Ever since we said it He went and took the credit It's been A7 headed this way since the world began When a vicious creature took the jump from Monkey to Man Repeat Riff To Fade.
