Roger Miller - The Animal Of Man Lyrics

His footprints can be found
On the graves of dead young soldiers
On the amber covered plains
Killed by radio-active rains

And his traces can be found
In the dying streams and meadows
And he'll kill you if he can
He's the animal of man

Yes his traces can be found
In the scars of red-skin children
That have never fully healed
Ask a black man how he feels

He's a nervous gifted child
He's an old man been forgotten
He's a military band
He's the animal of man

    Had this album for many years until a disaster struck. Kind of remember two tracks....Qua La Linta  and Uncle Harvey's Plane.  Any Chance of you upping these?

    loved this song first time i heard it many years ago the words of this song are so true with the things are happening in the world today you could say that it is an insult to the animals of the world as man is the most aggressive creature ever to walk the planet

    Dick Ellingson

    The human is the only cruel animal.

  11. paul whysall

    One of those great singers that you recognise after just a couple of words. What an incredible voice.  Could do funny stuff and emotional stuff equally brilliantly.
