lyrics

Phylogeny of the People! A C A
It shows that we are all equal! A C A

A phylogeny E A
Is like a family tree E A
It shows that everything on earth is related to me E A D
If you travel down the tree of life twig by twig E A
You'll find our common ancestor with the pig E A D
Not to mention the fig C
And the guinea pig E

We gotta smash up the notion to which we've clung D
That the human race is somehow at the top of the tree A
Yeah it's pretty cool that we've survived this long D
But so has every single living bird and bee A

Power to the people! E A
But equal power to the chimpanzees! E A D
Power to the seals E A
For science reveals E A
The common root to our phylogenies. E A D

Phylogeny of the People! A C A
It shows that we are all equal! A C A

The tree of life is growing E A E A
Evolution is ongoing E A E A
Where it will lead, there is no way of knowing! E A E A E A E A

Phylogeny of the People... C D
Yeah! E
