The Lyrics

Some claim his name is Martin, but I think it might be Tommy.
Just before the year 2000
He formed as someone’s thought
A clever bit of wordplay
A way to sell a lot
Of all manner of insurance
In many a TV spot

That bipedal reptile
Sure makes a cute mascot!

He stands on his hind legs
And makes funny little quips
Licking lizard eyeballs
Smacking lizard lips
Preys on human weakness
The accent ain’t for naught

That bipedal reptile
Sure makes a cute mascot!

He’s the GEICO® Lizard
That gecko is a hit
The GEICO® Lizard’s got such a subtle wit

“Why is he so effective?”
“No one knows!”
“What makes him so cute?”

There’s no compensation
He doesn’t get a paycheck
He’s just an animation
Like a tiny Shrek
And the ones who voice him
Really don’t get squat

That bipedal reptile
Sure makes a cute mascot!

I thought I liked my insurance plan
But I just switched it to GEICO® ’cuz of him

Other than it sounds like “GEICO®”
A gecko isn’t fit
For insurance marketing
You really must admit
He’s got crazy sticky fingers
All he owns is hot

But that bipedal reptile
Sure makes a cute mascot!

I think I just saved 15 minutes of my life listening to this song match up. It's all broken down by 5's.

Cute idea, flawless execution

I like parodies of songs I know. And subjects I'm familiar with. This one captures the appeal of this little character.

Perfect parody! I hope Geico(R)'s marketing team sees this and hires you to write their jingles.

All he needs now is the cavemen to back him up on a music video. One of those, ah, men did resemble Keith Moon somewhat! (or was it John Entwhistle?)

I appreciate all your comments! I'd love to see GEICO® pick this up and talk The Who (or even better, Sir Elton) into recording it for them. It's a nifty coincidence that The Who's new album is out today.
