The Lyrics

Yeah, yeah, the Dixie Cups had the popular version in '65 (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iko_Iko), but this parody targets and credits the slightly differing lyric stucture and pacing of the presumptive original. It also presumes familiarity with an ad campaign by an insurer I personally wish would go back to the gecko. :-)
Dat cavemon get orange duck, him cave to he off-buyer
Dis cavemon, me roll me eyes, ay be disgusted sigher …

Chorus:
talkin’ ’bout hey now (hey now) hey now (hey now) …
Ay go “Geico, No way!
Fockin’ wit’ me, now, Mon? Go way!
Knockin’ on me? Go ’way!”

Airport ad firs’ make me mad, but me lose cavemon ire—
win’ up whinin’ “Shrink, me stuck in existential mire.”
Chorus

Me lose respec’ fo’ cavemon frien’ me fin’ be Geico-buyer,
Say “Mon, I t’ink yoo ought ta be mo’ troo cavefolk allier!”
Chorus

Nex’ me lie on beach an’ watch me girlfrien’ doff attire,
but leave when Geico ad be towed by by some beach by-flyer
Chorus

[Instrumental interlude]

Chorus
Caveman not so dumb? Maybe, but his prioities are a mess. Joanie Sommers take note: You''re better off leaving Johnny meek and mellow. :-)

Bah ... up to my old sloppy transcription tricks. Parody title should be like 1st line, "Ay go 'Geico ...'" Oh well. Nice to drop in after months away and see everyone still here.

Thanks, 2Eagle. AAMOF, I _did_ parody "that one" a few months ago (http://www.amiright.com/parody/60s/joaniesommers0.shtml), and appreciated your comment on it atthe time. :-)
