I saw a friend of mine 2day
N an ad sayin' what would do my body good
I told him he was wastin' time, I say
If God wanted milk n me
The breast I suck would have a line around the hood

No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity
No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing 2 me
It's why I don't eat red meat or white fish
Don't give me no blue cheese
We're all members of the animal kingdom
Leave ur brothers and sisters n the sea
Animal, animal kingdom
Sha sha sha....
Animal, animal kingdom

Who told us we should eat the swine?
U can bet ur bottom money it damn sure wasn't no friend of mine
What about the clams on the shore?
Souls n progress, here come the fisherman, soul no more

No member of the animal kingdom nurses past maturity (Oh yeah)
No member of the animal kingdom ever did a thing 2 me
(Ever did a damn thing)
So I don't eat no red meat or white fish or funky, funky blue cheese
We're all members of the animal kingdom
Leave ur brothers and sisters n the sea
Animal, animal kingdom
Animal, animal kingdom
Animal, animal kingdom
