lyrics

Well it started in a soup now add the passage of time

I find when evolution happens it can take forever

Molecules pooling, grouping, growing in sizes

Some take hold. Others relinquish. We're still finding records.



Time was resolute and now they're swimming the tides.

They climb upon the rising land and here they stuck together

Humans did not arise for eons of time

Then crawling from the trees and forests

We start building weapons



And Jiminy Cricket y'all

you think the tree of evolution just a tree of thought

I will concede indeed that once

we thought the tree of evolution just a tree of thought

but it's not. Nope, no, nu-uh it's not.



And as time was resolute the tribes are pitted and fighting

Wandering one continent but here some cut the tether

Walked out of Africa to settle beside the Tigris and Euphrates rivers

Here they planted the earth. I think they planted it first.



Well Jiminy Cricket y'all

you think the tree of evolution's just a tree that starts with Adam and Eve

Repeat that cause you think that Eve was feeding Adam from a tree of

You think that Eve was feeding Adam from some tree.

You think that Eve is feeding Adam from a tree of

So you think that Eve was feeding Adam from her tree of thought

But she's not. Nope, no, nu-uh she's not.



Cause it started in a soup now add the passage of time

I find when evolution happens it can take forever

Millions of years elapse things living than dying

Some took hold. Others relinquish. It's right there in the dirt.



But Jiminy Cricket y'all

you think the tree of evolution's just a tree of thought

I will concede indeed that once

we thought the tree of evolution just a tree of

We thought the tree of evolution just some tree

You think the tree of evolution's just a tree of

Well you think that tree of evolution just a tree of thought

But it's not. Nope, no, nu-uh it's not. Nu-uh it's not.
