I found the transcription of the video:

There are billions of galaxies in the observable universe
And each of them contains hundreds of billions of star
In one of these galaxies
Orbiting one of these stars
Lies a little blue planet
And this planet is run by a bunch of monkeys
Now these monkeys don't think of themselves as monkeys
They don't even think of themselves as animals
In fact, they love to list all the things that they think separate them from the animals:
Opposable thumbs
Self-awareness
They use words like Homo Erectus and Australopithecus
You say Toe-mate-o, I say Toe-motto
They're animals all right
They're monkeys
Monkeys with high-speed digital fiber-optic technology
But monkeys nevertheless
I mean, they're clever
You've got to give them that
The Pyramids, skyscrapers, phantom jets,
the Great Wall of China
That's all pretty impressive
For a bunch of monkeys
Monkeys whose brains have evolved
to such an unmanageable size
that it's now pretty much impossible
for them stay happy for any length of time
In fact, they're the only animals that think
they're supposed to be happy
All of the other animals can just be
But it's not that simple for the monkeys
You see, the monkeys are cursed with consciousness
And so the monkeys are afraid
So the monkeys worry
The monkeys worry about everything
but mostly about what all the other monkeys think
Because the monkeys desperately want to fit in with the other monkeys
Which is pretty hard to do because a lot of the monkeys hate each other
This is really what separates them from the other animals
These monkeys hate
They hate monkeys that are different
Monkeys from different places
Monkeys who are a different color
You see, the monkeys feel alone
All six billion of them
Some of the monkeys pay another monkey to listen to their problems
The monkeys want answers and the monkeys know they're going to die
So the monkeys make up gods and then they worship them
Then the monkeys start to argue over whose made-up god is better
Then the monkeys get really pissed off and this is usually when the monkeys decide that it's a good time to start killing each other
So the monkeys wage war
The monkeys make hydrogen bombs
The monkeys have got their entire planet wired up to explode
The monkeys just can't help it
Some of the monkeys play to a sold out crowd of other monkeys
The monkeys make trophies and then they give them to each other
Like it means something
Some of the monkeys think they've got it all figured out
Some of the monkeys read Nietzsche
The monkeys argue about Nietzsche without ever giving any consideration to the fact that Nietzsche was just another monkey
The monkeys make plans
The monkeys fall in love
The monkeys have sex and then they make more monkeys
The monkeys make music and then the monkeys dance
Dance, monkeys, dance
The monkeys make a hell of a lot of noise
The monkeys have so much potential if they would only apply themselves
The monkeys shave the hair off of their bodies in blatant denial of their true monkey nature
The monkeys build giant monkey hives that they call "cities"
The monkeys draw a lot of imaginary lines in the dirt
The monkeys are running out of the oil which is what fuels their precarious civilization
The monkeys are polluting and raping their planet like there's no tomorrow
The monkeys like to pretend that everything is just fine
Some of the monkeys actually believe that the entire universe was created for their benefit
As you can see . . . these are some messed up monkeys
These monkeys are at once the ugliest and the most beautiful creatures on the planet
And the monkeys don't want to be monkeys
They want to be something else
But they're not.

Awesome text, I loved it.
We're just a bunch of monkeys trying to learn other monkeys languages!
