A religious fanatic has some trouble in the Biology department. Manny sings this to him.

[intro]
Some people think we're related to monkeys.
This is what they say:

[verse]
Evolution is a fact! All of science shows it.
Why can't you accept this? What is your problem?
Could it be you're too proud to admit
you're related to a monkey?
Don't forget, pride is one
of the seven deadly sins.

[verse]
The scientists argue how it happened; (they argue how)
they argue why. (my oh my,)
But they agree it did happen, (but they agree)
it's senseless to deny. (so why deny?)
So you see, they all agree
evolution is a fact of nature.
You'll just have to face the fact:
you're related to a monkey!

[lead in D, then bridge to triplet riffs, then lead in A]

[verse]
The only problem is your in-ter-pre-ta-tion.
Evolution is the better ex-pla-na-tion of
overwhelming evidence that evolution is
a fact of nature.
You'll just have to face the fact:
you're related to a monkey!
