Apeman Tab
APEMAN- The Kinks

D D D D D A A   D  E  A

A                                                               E      Esus4  E
I think I'm sophisticated cos I'm living my life like a good Homosapien
    A
But all around me everybody's multiplying
               E                           Esus4  E
Till they're walkin' round like flies man
   D                                                 A                  Asus4  A
So I'm no better than the animals sitting in their cages in the zoo man
                                                        E           A
Cos compared to the flowers and the birds and the trees I am an ape man

I think I'm so educated and I'm so civilized cos I'm a strict vegetarian
But with the over-population and inflation and starvation and the crazy politicians
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war                              RIFF 1
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man

CHORUS #1:
A                                             E
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
A                                                E
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an ape man
     D
Cos compared to the sun that sits in the sky
A
Compared to the clouds as they roll by
                                               E           A
Compared to the bugs and the spiders and flies I am an ape man

D  D  D  D  D    A  A    D  E  A   RIFF 1
La la la la la,  la la

BRIDGE:
A                                          E
In man's evolution he has created the cities and the motor traffic rumble
A                                             E
But give me half a chance and I'd be taking off my clothes and living in the jungle
         D                                 A
Cos the only time that I feel at ease is swinging up and down in a coconut tree
                            E              A      RIFF 1
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an ape man

CHORUS #2:
I'm an ape, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voodoo man, oh I'm an ape man
I look out my window, but I can't see the sky
The air pollution is a-foggin' up my eyes
I want to get out of this city alive and make like an ape man

D  D  D  D  D   A  A    D  E  A
La la la la la, la la

             E (RIFF 2)               A (RIFF 3)
Ah come and love me,   be my ape man girl
                  E (RIFF 2)               A    RIFF 4     RIFF 1
And we will be so happy    in my ape man world

CHORUS #3:
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man, oh I'm an ape man
I'll be your Tarzan, you'll be my Jane
I'll keep you warm and you'll keep me sane
We'll sit in the trees and eat bananas all day
Just like an ape man   RIFF 1

CHORUS #4:
I'm an ape man, I'm an ape ape man, oh I'm an ape man
I'm a King Kong man, I'm a voo-doo man, oh I'm an ape man
I don't feel safe in this world no more
I don't want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore and make like an ape man

D  D  D  D  D    A  A    D  E  A
La la la la la,  la la

About the artist behind Apeman Tab:

The Kinks were an English pop/rock group formed in 1963, and categorised as a British Invasion band, along with the other members of the so-called Big Four (The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and The Who). Despite being less commercially successful than these three contemporaries, mostly because of a four-year ban from the United States in the mid-to-late 1960s, the Kinks are cited among them as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time and have 12 top 40 hits in America.[1]

The band's early hard-driving singles set a standard in the mid-1960s for rock and roll, while albums such as Face to Face,[2] Something Else, The Kinks Are the Village Green Preservation Society, Arthur and Muswell Hillbillies are highly regarded by fans, critics, and peers, and are considered amongst the most influential recordings of the era.[3]
