The Lyrics

Don't ask me how I came up with this... to quote Dan Aykroyd as Ray Stantz in Ghostbusters, "It just popped in there!" Enjoy!
**Fred Flintstone singing**
We're the modern Stone Age family
See my clothes? They're so raggedy
Oh, Wilma, I love you, but do you love me?
And why does Barney steal my Pebbles?

Why is Dino a dinosaur?
And why is Barney Rubble a bore?
I don't care, 'cause now I love you
Get romantic now
Get romantic now, prehistoric now

Because the dinos are among us
Because we're all neanderthals
Because the neighbors are the Rubbles
Because the night belongs to us

Everything is made of stone
Couches, TV, and telephone
Love among cavemen could not be lust

You lie in bed when I take the cat out
Is it a cat or sabertooth?
And no matter how I must command
Locks me out in front of the door
We're romantic now,
We're cavemen now, neanderthals

Because the baby's name is Pebbles
Because our cat's a sabertooth
Because the Rubbles' son is Bamm-Bamm
'Cause you and I are prehistoric

With love we sleep
On rocks, be made of bedrock
My feet hurt
Because that is how we drive
Mr. Slate might fire me
I believe it's time for love at last
We're cavemen now, love me now, kiss me now

Because the baby's name is Pebbles
Because our dog's a dogosaurus
Because the cavemen are romantic
Because the night belongs to us

Because tonight we're cavemen lovers
If we believe in cavemen at all
Because tonight we're cavemen lovers

(Repeat/fade out)

Isn't the original by 10,000 Maniacs?

yes, Natalie Merchant went back in time twenty years and demanded Bruce Springsteen write it for her instead. You behave like you're 10 on this site, and your lack of musical knowledge of anything before the 90s helps confirm it.

Would you believe it! Bruce Springsteen wrote it (sans verse lyrics) and gave it to Patti Smith in the 1970s because it suited her voice better (at least that's what The Boss says). It was Patti's only hit. 1,000 Maniacs covered it in 1993. Thank you.

Hey, "dude", back off! Arwen's cool,. smart, and funny, noyt to mention talented! When's the last time *you* wrote a parody?! Leave the girl alone, and if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything. She does NOT act like she's ten.....I swear, I'm going to have a heart attack or an aneurysm or something here. Leave my friends alone.

Thanks, Jared...=)

And for Chris, dude, and the author police...(perhaps all one in the same)...I wasn't trying to be snotty and I certainly wasn't acting immature...(like, maybe, leaving comments under different names, because you're too afraid to leave your real name...which IS immature)

...I was actually just asking a question...I had never heard the Patti Smith version...CONGRATULATIONS on knowing something I didn't know. You should probably write it down in your journal or're clearly very proud of yourselves.

Finally...considering that the majority of the parodies I post are of songs which were recorded probably before any of you were even born, I think the comment about my lack of pre-90s musical knowledge is just plain ridiculous.

dude, you need to give Arwen a break. She didn't know that Bruce Springsteen originally did this song (but couldn't record anything because of contract disputes) and gave it to Patti Smith or any of that. I was, however, the Author Police on this song (it's a tough job, but someone's gotta tell us who originated the songs). I really don't mind anybody with a Tolkien moniker (I'm a Tolkien freak myself, currently reading "The Hobbit").
