The Lyrics

If I were a Flintstone,
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
All day long I wear nice loinclothe
If I were a Cromagnon.

I'd work in a stone query.
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
If I were in Prehisto-or-ric,
I would be an idle wild man.

I'd build a big stone house it would only be one-story,
Right in the suburbs of Bedrock.
A fine stone roof with real dirty floors and ash.
There would be one wooly mammoth just for our shower,
And one even bigger for our sink,
And one pig underneath it, just for trash.

I'd fill my yard with Dinos and mammals and Bronto and Dactlys.
For the town to see and hear.
And each loud "roar" and "swaqwk" and "honk" and "quack"
Would land like a trumpet on the ear,
As if to say "Here lives a Cromagnon."

If I were a Flintstone,
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
All day long I wear nice loinclothe
If I were a Cromagnon.
I'd work in a stone query.
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
If I were in Prehisto-or-ric,
I would be an idle wild man.

I see my wife, my Wilma, looking like a Cromagnon wife
With a proper white loin clothe.
Supervising meals to her heart's delight.
I see her broiling Bronto Burgers and eating like I would,
Serving good yummy food I love.
Screaming at my children, day and night.

The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!
They would ask me to advise them,
Like a Barney or Mr. Slate.
"If you please,Fred Flintstone..."
"Pardon me, Fred Flintstone..."
Making problems that would make a porcelain vase break!
And it won't make one bit of difference if it all comes out wrong.
If I were Fred, they think you really know!

If I were Fred, I'd have the time just to bowl.
To sit in the bolwing alley and play.
And maybe have a seat and drink a little wine.
And I'd discuss the shapes of rocks with my fellow men, after-work hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.

If I were a Flintstone,
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
All day long I wear nice loinclothe
If I were a Cromagnon.
I'd work in a stone query.
Ya ba dabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba dabba do!
If I were in Prehisto-or-ric,
I would be an idle wild man.

Clever concept - I would have liked it better without the misspelled words (loincloth, quarry, bowling).

Stone quarry, not query I assume? Otherwise, good song.

sorry,. bout the mispelling it was 12 at night, and my mind (or what is left) wasn't thinking.

Missed this first time round - Good job... 4;5;5 as the pacing (which is pretty hard for a lot of this song) ain't always perfect.. but the lines for the very last chorus "Lord who made the lion and the lamb" etc ain't there... But a super parody, nonetheless
