Ballad of the caveman Lyrics by Oingo Boingo
Ballad of the caveman by Oingo Boingo
When mother earth was young and dinosaurs walked to and fro
His skull contained but half a brain but he didn't mind at all
He's a hot shot caveman, yah do dah (?)
Who loved to fight and brawl
He walked the misty plate in time to find whatever he could find
Then at last he saw her there, covered with hair
A cavegirl looking right his way, half naked, half well who can say
Such a thing he'd never seen before, Well then need I tell you more
The caveman fell in love, love, love
And so he wielded his club
Oooh oooh what could he do?
You can't blame a fellow for trying his luck,
He's just a simple caveman who wanted to---
Well when the cavegirl came around she had some things to relate
about the methods he used to communicate
And she said--
I never expected a caveman to exhibit much finesse,
but a fifty pound club ain't exactly a caress
So if you want to call me, you better learn to talk
Until you learn some manners buddy,
Take a walk!
