"The Smartest Monkeys" is a song by Colin Moulding. It appeared on the 1992 album Nonsuch.

The demo appeared both as a B-side to "The Disappointed" CD single and on the limited edition French Gribouillage EP.

QuotesEdit

Colin: “A piece of sarcasm and an obvious sentiment - the human race can send a man to the moon but it's not able to put food in stomachs and roofs over heads.”

LyricsEdit

Well man created the cardboard box to sleep in it

And man converted the newspaper to a blanket


Well you have to admit that he's come a long way

Since swinging about in the trees


We're the smartest monkeys

The smartest monkeys

The evidence is all around

Our brains are bigger

This we've found

The smartest monkeys


Well man discovered the park bench can make a transition

And the rubbish tip makes a valid form of nutrition


With discoveries like these

Civilisation agrees

To give itself a pat on the back


We're the smartest monkeys

The evolution's plain to see

We're the dominant of the species

The smartest monkeys


We brought the caveman from the stoneage

To the subways of the modern world

How they pack so many in

Quick call the Guinness Book of Records


Well you have to admit that he's come a long way

Since swinging about in the trees


We're the smartest monkeys

The smartest monkeys

The evidence is all around

Our brains are bigger

This we've found

The smartest monkeys
