Lyrics to The History Of Man
The History Of Man Video:
Two little monkeys, wild and free One fell down from a big tall tree The other one's yellin "Mama look at me" The History of Man Eve was tweaked, Adam couldn't speak Flashed on the apple and his knees got weak Took a big bite and started to write The History of Man Trees shakin, hearts breakin Time takin everything down Tears dryin, fig leaves flyin Babies cryin all night long Paradise lost, and on the next page Cain slew Abel in a jealous rage Next thing you know, it's the Holy Crusades The History of Man "This is absurd" came the word from Jehovah "You can't get to Heaven in a Chevy Nova Noah, build a yacht, we gotta start over!" The History of Man Winds wailin, buckets bailin Feets failin on trails untrod Waves crashin, lightnin flashin Good ol' fashioned wrath o' God This fire has been here from the start And no rain's gonna drown it out This fire still burns here in my heart And no amount of pain's gonna stomp it out Cicero couldn't keep his big mouth shut So Antony wreaked some havoc on his butt Then lost his to Cleopatra, that slut The History of Man Primordial ooze to the primate boogie Blue suede shoes and tryin to get lucky Born to lose and lookin for nookie The History of Man Love makin, hearts breakin Time takin everything down Tears dryin, lovers tryin One more trip on the merry-go-round This fire has been here from the start And no rain's gonna drown it out This fire still burns here in my heart And no amount of pain's gonna stomp it out Ivan the Terrible, Atila the Hun Hannibal the Cannibal to Mao Tse Tung Charlemagne to Saddam Hussein The History of Man There's always been suckers, hungry and sick Always some fucker with another dirty trick Planting some flag and wavin his dick Shit keeps flyin, heroes dyin They're back in next week's episode Walls shakin, hearts breakin And we keep takin it on the road Years keep flyin, lovers keep tryin One more trip on the merry-go-round Winners reap on, losers weep on Carnivals keep on comin to town So jush little baby, don't you cry Everybody's gonna get a little piece of pie Just cross your heart and hope to die It's the History of Man
