Monkey and Mud


It doesn’t matter if we’re monkey or mud
Both monkey and man are made out of crud
Muck, and dust, and dirt, and loam
Stuff from the sea and particles of foam

Then we received the breath of God
The spirit, the life
Made from the mud and given a wife

It isn’t offensive to be a primate
In fact it’s quite great
Instead of coming directly from shrimp
We were formed from cute little chimps

Then we received the breath of God
The spirit, the life
Made from the mud and given a wife

Do not say ‘I didn’t come from a monkey’
As though that were funky
Isn’t that better than gravel and gook
Swinging above earth from which we were took?

Then we received the breath of God
The spirit, the life
Made from the mud and given a wife
