Well, the hawk has its graspin' talons, baby
And the snake has its bitin' fangs
There's the elephant's trunk
And the smell of the skunk
They're all there to fight the hunger pangs.
Well, the frigate's got its bright red guler, baby
And the boobie's got its teal blue feet.
As they step into the fire
In the flame of their desire
Evolution's turning up the heat.
Well, the biologic clock was atickin', baby
Evolution from the wild to the tame
Evolution it's a numbers game
For the birds and bees and the redwood trees
Well the facts are pretty much the same.
In the moment that the dodo blinked.
In the natural war,
Like the old dinosaur
You might just end up extinct.
Well, I'm going through some major changes, baby
And I hope that you know it's true
I'm creating what I can
Cause I plan to be the man
I'm adapting with or without you.
Well, this evolution thing is a science, baby
Evolution changin' every day
Evolution to catch my prey
We go round and round
To the driving sound
Evolution's little rondolay
I'm afraid that's the way things are
I'll be standing on the shoulders of giants
To see real far. To see real far.
Well, I'm not tryin' to be obscure here, baby
With some old theory off the shelf.
In the animal world
Well, it's dog eat dog
And it's every man for himself.
Well, the world out there is a jungle, baby.
Evolution, from dusk till dawn
Evolution, from king to pawn,
Be it feast or famine,
They just keep on jammin',
They just keep on keepin' it on.
You can go and ask Chuckie D.
There are lions and tigers and bears, oh my
Well, it's all in their biology.
Well, I'd really like to punctuate this point, baby
You need roots in your family tree.
Because you'll be affected
By how well-connected
Is your relativity.
So, our lives are a struggle for existence, baby
Evolution, we all must play
Evolution of DNA
Where the plants and the creatures
Are changing all their features
They're adapting to a brave new day.
They are red in both tooth and claw.
From the big to the small
Well, it's winner take all
Because baby, that is the natural law.
Evolution as you can see
Evolution is changing me
From the peacock's fan
To the brain of man
Well, it's all in our biology.
