Evolution Works

from Years of a Monkey by Quartjar



Evolution works, why don't you try it sometime?
Stand up on your own two feet
Grab hold of something with your opposable thumbs
And you'll admit it's pretty neat

Took seven days and 400 billion years*
To get this far down the track
We're sittin' pretty on top of the food chain
And we're not goin' back (I hope)

I was a skinny little monkey
Now I'm a grape old ape
I was a skinny little monkey, once
Now I'm a ripe old ape

Evolution works and it's a pretty good deal
Time can heal all wounds
Swinging in the trees and swaying in the breeze
The mating season swoons

Darwin and Jesus never had harsh words
Between them that whole time
We're all in the same place, planet Earth's in outer space
That's the truest line

-- Chorus repeat --

Evolution works, why don't you try it sometime
It's a pretty good deal
Evolution works, why don't you try it sometime
We've all got a niche to fill

-- Chorus repeat --

*Songwriter's note: More accurately, the Earth's age is thought to be 4.54-ish billion years old. Hyperbole that the 400 billion may be, it's what's on the recording. C'est la vie.
