Product Description
This song offers fun facts about Chimpanzees who share 94% of their DNA with humans at the gene level (of their entire genome the estimate ranges from 85 to 90+ %). Lyrics below. Use this to dance around like Chimpanzees. Or play percussion to it. This song is titled "Chimpanzees Are Like U and Me" from the "Move Like an Animal" CD by Birdie's Playhouse.

Chimpanzees are like you and me
They like to hoot, they like to scream
94 percent of their DNA is just like ours we’re all the same
They know how to manipulate tools, man or primate, who’s the fool?
Chimpanzees are like you and me

These great apes love to socialize
They even groom each other’s hair at night
And they warn each other to take flight (when something’s not right)
You might see them holding hands
S ome will smile some will even laugh
Some will throw a tantrum if they’re mad


They can swing from branch to branch
T hey can walk on their knuckles real fast
Some will even build a bed to nap (with leaves and grass)
Don’t invade their space it’s true
A Chimpanzee will throw a branch at you
So make sure you play nice with their troop

They can count one two three, they can even learn to sign Chinese
And they’ve got photographic memory (isn’t that sweet?)
But let’s not get ahead ourselves
They have their lives and we have ours
And they have the right to be free


All of nature’s children, black or white, red or green
Human being or chimpanzee, we’re all the same
