The Lyrics

According to Darwinist beliefs human evolution took off when we climbed down from the trees and moved into caves. I don't believe that, not fully, it sounds too much like an organized plan. What really happened was probably far more accidental. Here's my theory: During especially fruitful years some ape men got lazy and started to put on weight, then FELL out of the trees and couldn't climb back up again. Forced to spend the nights in the nearest cave (or the nearest where they could kill the resident boar) they quickly developed a taste for raw meat, six-packs of bat bladder urine and tossing leftovers on the floor. As for why the female apes came after and joined in I don't really know, but the word "fur" is probably central in some way.

A YouTube version of the original song can currently be found here:
Nice cave, tame boars
And all the modern comfort held in store
Stream newts, stones dyed
They don't have that in the pi-i-ine
They come scouting just about every night
'Cos chimp girls see something in a troglodyte

Wall paint, kidney ink
They aren't missing a single link
Fruit drinks, trash bins
Why climb up they might as well stay in
They're returning just as fast as the night
'Cos chimp girls feel homely near a troglodyte

Tame goats, tame cats
If they hurry they might get the bat
Hot dates, fur gown
Bonking yard - It's on eiderdown!!!
They come climbing just as one gets in sight
'Cos chimp girls get horny for a troglodyte

Loved the intro story! Though the parody topic was prehistoric, its skilled writing comes from a well-evolved author. I think the men chased the women, though "fur" was probably the reason. ;-)

I was wondering how you were going to make ZZ Top into a troglodyte, Peter. Even the top comments were clever with it's 6 pack of bat bladder urine (eww) 5's
