          G                          D 
You're my favorite animal, but I'm biased I guess
             Em                   C 
Because you look quite a bit like me
             G                       D 
You're not as eloquent and you've a hairier chest
      Em                 C  D 
But I can't pick my family


       G	            D
As I shake your hand I can feel your grip
         Em			    C
And it's definitely firmer than mine
            G		    		   D
They say a strong handshake shows the man is equipped
         Em			   C	     D
But if I called you a man I'd be crossing a line


          Em
You're an animal
                  C D
You're not like me
          Em
You're an animal
         C		D
I have dominion over thee

Interlude:
    G D Em C  
    G D Em C

          G	
You might be my cousin 
    D			             Em	   C D
But I don't know if you could be my friend
		  G
'Cause you don't seem the person on
D				     Em	C D
Which when I'm in need I could depend


              G
In fact when I look closer
    D			         Em  C D
You don't seem like a person at all
	G
Do you have opinions?
D
  Do you keep morals?
Em		      C	 D
Do you even have a soul?


          Em
You're an animal
                C  D
You're not like me
           Em
You're an animal
            C		    D
Oh what a silly thing to be

Interlude:
    G D Em C 
    G D Em C

G 		         D
  And when I look at you
		        Em
Do you know what I see?
      D 
I see me 
      C
I see me
 		         D
'Cause when I look at you
 		                 Em
Yeah I can't help but see myself
 	     	     D   C D
Next to you in the tree


	 G 			    D
You're my favorite animal, but I'm biased I guess
             Em 		  C 
Because you look quite a bit like me
             G 			   D 
And when I stand to admire you I can't help but confess
           Em		      	      C D
That your mannerisms fill me with glee


 	G			     D
You're partial to bananas, and I'm munching on chips 
          Em				   C
That I'm sharing with the friend by my side
     G			     	     D
You peel it from the bottom, concentrating as you sit
Em			  C	       D		  C
Break it in two and pass half to the friend you're beside


 	   Em
You're an animal	- oowaoo -
                  C     
You're just like me	- oowaoo -
	         Em
'Cause I'm an animal	- oowaoo -
 	       C        D 
We're of the same biology


G		      D				  C  D
Oh mister monkey man, I've got a favor can't you see
G		    D				   C  D
I was wondering if you would make a monkey out of me?
