The Lyrics

In the Late Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago, there existed a variety of primates, the "Haplorini", from which some scientists theorize hominids arose - and from which this parody most definitely arose.
Haplorini was an ancient primate
And every plant he'd meet, he probably ate
With every clue he gave
From fossils in his cave -
Odds are his braincase was mostly hollow

See Cretaceous Man!
See Cretaceous Man!
He's walkin' on his knuckles,
And growin' a bigger brain

Beware of pretty fossils that you find
A pretty stone can fool the brightest mind
Ah, beware what you conclude
From that fossilized ape food -
Odds are you'll be eatin' it tomorrow

See Cretaceous Man!
See Cretaceous Man!
He's swingin' from the branches,
And swattin' them bugs in vain

(electric guitar - instrumental bridge)

See Cretaceous Man!
See Cretaceous Man!
He's eatin' them bananas,
And munchin' the barley grain

Swingin' on the cocoanut tree one day
And then matin' with some Haplorini next day
On a banana peel he slipped,
Fell over and broke his hip -
The odds are he won't live to see tomorrow

See Cretaceous Man!
See Cretaceous Man!
He's pissin' in the jungle,
And markin' off his domain

(electric guitar riff)

See Cretaceous Man!

Johnny, yeah!! Like it a lot. Literate, but not stuffy. Absolutely perfect pace. Was chuckling out loud reading it. I'm gonna recommend some people here at work take a gander at it. Only flaw - (smallest of small) "coconut". Straight 5-5-5 score.

Got in late. I voted. The averages went up. Now I go kill wooly mammoth. Ugh.
Johnny D - November 21, 2003 - Report this comment
Thank you Rick, Melhi, Adagio, and Rice Cube. And Rick - Here. Take club. Bring stone. Use to kill mammoth. Ugh.

Johnny D - The missed vote thing, Guilty! I've done this a couple times now; filled in the votes and then went and made comments BEFORE submitting the vote. I apologize and am correcting that omission right after sending this, I PROMISE. I'm gonna have to get on-line at home, I've been trying to enter submissions, check my stuff and read some other people's efforts while I'm at work. If I can remember who else I unintentionally stiffed I'll fix those and pass along my meaculpas (is that one word? never took Latin).
