animals i have begun lyrics – apologetix

i can’t explain this well
so many kinds of life
but i still can’t yet find
somebody friendly who is like me
i can’t console myself

so, lord, if you concede a partner’s right for me
someone to help me name these animals i have begun
help me, please — don’t want no chimpanzees
someone to help me name these animals

i can’t just date myself
so let me find a bride
but not the dangerous type
somebody pretty who has nice hair
i can’t just hold myself

so, lord, if you concede a partner’s right for me
someone to help me name these animals i have begun
she’ll be pet*te and someone real sweet
someone to help me name these animals i have begun
we’ll be a team ’cause she’ll agree with me
someone to help me name these animals

someone to help me through this life here
i can’t just clone myself
somebody shapely on my side, yeah
to share this sp*ce i dwell

so, lord, if you concede a partner’s right for me
someone to help me name these animals i have begun
i’ll be complete — and she can clean for me
someone to help me name these animals i have begun
beneath the trees, we’ll grab a bite to eat
someone to help me name these animals
these animals i have begun

genesis 2:20
so the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds of the air and all the beasts of the field. but for adam no suitable helper was found.
