'Apeman Hop' Lyrics

(by Dee Dee Ramone)

He's got so many problems, you can count them one by one.

He's a filthy, stupid apeman, he never has any fun.

He lives in the jungle, in a cave by a hill,

Plays an old log drum, he's primitive, barely human.

Apeman hop, apeman hop.

Paint the face of a demon, glowing by the firelight.

Hopping like an elephant, thunder and lightning tonight.

He's the world's first witch doctor, the iceman comes to life.

He's the Devil's apprentice; he's a prehistoric man.

Apeman hop, apeman hop.

At night, he's gonna sacrifice his beloved apeman girl.

Tie her to the alter, pull out her heart and eat her flesh.

Apeman hop, apeman hop.
