Seems like these are tunes about the human condition so putting those kids of tunes here
I'm beginning to think I'm going crazy
Tho' I didn't think so yesterday
Maybe something I saw on TV
now I'm thinkin' in a different way

I think that I was watching Nova
or something else on PBS
They were talkin' Neanderthal-and
how their genes got mixed with us

(chorus)
Neanderthal     just 4 percent of us all
Neanderthal     hiding behind a wall
Neanderthal     at our beck and call
when we start to fall, Neanderthal

600 thousand years ago
some early humans drifted north
out of subSaharan sun
and evolution took its course

then who knows just how much later
they happened to meet up again
The Northerners had grown much stronger
and all the color had left their skin

(chorus)

(lead) 

As I continued to think about it
about the state of the USA
what if even that small percentage
had changed something in some wierd way

But, then, when I returned to normal
(or something like yesterday)
I knew the mess had always been there
its just no longer a world away

Neanderthal, just 4 percent of us all
Neanderthal, hiding behind a wall
Neanderthal, at our beck and call
but we can't blame it all .. on Neanderthal
