I'll tell you 'bout a caveman lived a million years ago
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--

(Female spoken)
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!
