lyrics

A fish with a mission crawls out of the ocean
On shore leave, orders carbon fizz
A million years he waited for this moment,
Now he thinks, therefore, he thinks he is.

Cause he's a man, he's a real man,
Stands upright, any way he can,
He does the hokey pokey, the bunny hop too,
Fall in line, there's a place for you

A visit to the jungle left a deep impression
A postmodern Tarzan with a Teflon knife
Now he's loaded down with questions for the science teacher
Ready to clone all the primitive life.

Cause he's a man, he's a real man,
Lives in Brooklyn or the Yucatan,
He likes to ride in a Cadillac
Went to the moon, but came right back.

It's really not a philosophical puzzle,
It's just a simple story of matter over mind
Of tax-free municipals and natural selection
Come and join the dance or you'll get left behind.

Cause he's a man, he's your main man,
Thinks he's part of a master plan,
Come on along, there's plenty of space,
That chimpanzee is saving your place
