The Lyrics

...here's the yabba-dabba-dirt on the flintstones...
he was a barrel shaped man
he was truly a fat 'un
his wife was trim and quite pretty
he had a job...giant boulders he'd flatten
in the heart...of ol' bedrock city
they took a long deserved vacation
just to get refueled
they went to rock vegas
where decadence ruled
but their gamblin' was bumbled
and they lost their bread
seemed a...rash disaster
for wilma...and poor fred

life in a past age...surely prehistoric times
life in a past age

are ya with me so far ?

fred's feet for traction...they drove off in shame
they sought relaxation...but went down in flames
they returned to their people...so run of the mill
folks like barney and betty...all together they chilled
with designs on his neighbor...fred was quite unchaste
and when barney finally noticed
well, he socked fred in the face
wilma was leavin'...she'd found out that night
that the two had...got naked
she was...too shocked to talk about it

life in a past age...surely prehistoric times
life in a past age...yeah yeah
life in a past age...ring-a-ding...all the time
life in a past age...my my

troubled and churnin'...poor wilma was hurt
so when barney gave the high sign
took her turn...as a flirt
she said, "listen, barney...me and you can have a fling
there's a hotel down the highway
we can hit the ol' bedsprings"
he said "call a taxi...we'll be there in a flash
since fred's been with my woman
i've been feelin' brave and brash"
they went rushin' down the roadway
messed around and got sloshed
they didn't care that both their marriages were squashed

and it was...life in a past age....surely prehistoric times
life in a past age
life in a past age...ring-a-ding...all the time
life in a past age

life in a past age
life in a past age
life in a past age

Couple this with Stu's "You And Me Betty Ain't Nuthin' But Rubbles" and we have the makings of a very strange episode. Almost Hentai Flintstones.

This parody was prehistorical and it be hysterical. I always suspected a lot of "Wham-bam-bam-thank-you-ma'am-ma'am" was going on with the 'Stones.

Sir Alvin, ~the Lusty Duke o' BedRock~ Can we hear more from the Bedrockers?? This was a most enjoyable read, on several levels of . . . . bedrock ! PS: I never got the feeling that dear Fred was hot for Betty . . . but then, she did have a more 'playful' attitude than Wilma.
