You see the old man sitting down there on the street
He has no shoes on his dirty feet
You know he is poor, he’s not rich for sure
And you passing by

Can’t you see the rusty ring he wears on his hand
Tells of former glory, now can’t pay his rent
And look at his hair, that tangerine glare
King of the Apes

The throne was his and the ring on his wrist
Got taken by the snake, that he once kissed
He fell through the trees, his foes had a feast
But he has a plan!

The monkey boy Fitzgerald will not bow
My army of Humanzees will stand in a row
Half human half ape, they’ll never forsake
I’m heir to the throne
My line
Thousands of years back in time
Deep was the fall, the decline
I’m raising my fist will you help me shine?

I will get back what was mine
Thousand years back in time
This is my fade
I will get back what was mine
Thousand years back in time
King of the Apes!
