The Lyrics

At Amiright.com, you can take songs and re-write them with funny lyrics. It's so easy... Actually, it's not as easy as it looks.
I think I'm sophisticated
'cause I'm living my life like a good homosapien.
But all around me, everybody's lousy driving
'til they needs some insurance to save them, man.
And they're no better than the animals
sitting in their cages in the zoo, man.
And they mock me and laugh at me just as they please
because I'm a Caveman.

They think they're so educated and they're so civilzed
'cause they don't have to be pedestrian.
But with their prejudicial nature and their inflated stature
they're think we're dumb, well, guess again.
I don't belong in this world, I'm sore.
To think our people made the wheel and much more.
It makes me angry way down in my core
'cause I am a Caveman.

I'm a Caveman! I'm a Cave, Caveman! I'm a Caveman!
I'm an old-school man! I'm original man! I'm a Caveman!
So go buy insurance like a modernish guy.
The cars you drive and the planes you fly
without us taming fire, you wouldn't get by.
Have respect for the Caveman.

In man's evolution, he has created the cities
and the motor traffic rumble.
But give me half a chance and I'll be making your clothes
from a beast in the jungle.
'Cause we were self-sufficient in 10K BC!
You wouldn't be here if it wasn't for me!
So don't assume what we do is so damned easy!
'Cause I am a Caveman!

I'm a Caveman! I'm a Cave, Caveman! I'm a Caveman!
I'm an old-school man! I'm original man! I'm a Caveman!
We managed for millennia to live real well.
We learned how to get rid of woolly-mammoth smell.
And hey, our women look like Welch, Raquel! *
So YAY! for the Caveman!

Come and love me, be my Caveman's girl
and we will be so happy in my Caveman world!

I'm a Caveman! I'm a Cave, Caveman! I'm a Caveman!
I'm an old-school man! I'm original man! I'm a Caveman!
I'll never hit my club on top of your head.
I'll stop vicious beasts from striking you dead.
I'll even sign with GEICO and save you some bread!
I'm smart, I'm a Caveman!

I'm a Caveman! I'm a Cave, Caveman! I'm a Caveman!
I'm an old-school man! I'm original man! I'm a Caveman!
So go and make your dumb car-insurance ad.
You'll never know the world that you might not have had
if my people hadn't been your 100-great-granddad!
Some love for the Caveman!
* see the 1966 version of the film "One Million Years B.C." Think taming Raquel was easy? No, but a Caveman could do it!

The Raquel verse cracked me up and, unfortunately, rhymes with "spell."

hate the ads, but love the parody...i've heard rumors the cavemen mght get their own TV show....lord help us !

John: Thank you, and... Me and my big mouth! "I Want Raquel, Don't You?" Yes, she's 66, but we should look so good now! Alvin: The rumor I'm hearing is that the show will be set in Atlanta. This way, they can A. confront people who don't believe in evolution, and B. appear to be the more evolved people for once. I mean, really... They should have John Rocker appear in the pilot. He won't like it, but since he sabotaged his career as a ballplayer (you talk about a big mouth...), he could probably use the money.

You might think this is the parodic equivalent of roast duck with mango salsa, little brother. I know how long you've been wracking your twisted, left-leaning, Pinstripe-addled brain trying to come up with an "Ape Man" parody. But after reading it, I don't have much of an appetite, thank you. Next time, do a little research!

Voting 5s is so easy, a cave man can do it.

Good spoofing of a current monotonous commercial

Geico have too many freakin' ads. The Gecko is enough, they don't need cavemen. But this is a good parody, though. 555!

I definitely prefer the caveman to the gecko.
