Beach Boys – Alley Oop lyrics

Hey hey hey
Da da da
That's what I say
Da da da

There's a man in the funny papers we all know
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
He lived way back a long time ago
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Well he don't eat nothin' but bearcat stew
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Oh well this cat's name is a-Alley Oop
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop

He's the toughest man there is alive
Alley Oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
Alley Oop
He's the king of the jungle jive
Look at that caveman go!

He's got a chauffeur that's a genuine dinosaur
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
And he can knuckle your head before you count to four
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
He's got a big ugly club and a headful of hair
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
He's oohhhh eatin' grizzly bear
(*Laughter*)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Forgot the words!

He's the toughest man there is alive
Alley Oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
Alley Oop
He's the king of the jungle jive
Look at that caveman go!
(*Scream*)

He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs offa trees
(*Scream*)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
And knocking great big monsters dead on their knees
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Other cats don't bug him ''cause they know better
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
''cause he's a mean motor scooter and a bad go-getter
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop

Well, uh, he's the toughest man there is alive
Alley Oop
Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
Alley Oop
He's a hully gully king of jive
(*Laugh*)
Well look at that caveman go!
(*Scream*)

There he goes
(There he goes.)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Look at that caveman go
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Ride, daddy, ride
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Heigh-ho, dinosaur
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Oh my goodness, what a big brute he is! Hm!
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Oh, how would you like a dinosaur like that, for your own? Mm!
(*Laughter*)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop
Alley Oop Oop, Oop Oop Oop

(G minor. D7.)
(What now? What now?)
(Just give me a minute.)
(Brian, I need a be flat [...]. You know I can't read.)
