Cretin Hop

Album: Rocket To Russia (1977)
  • There's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'
    You gotta keep it beatin' for all the hoppin' cretins

    Cretin, cretin
    I'm gonna go for a whirl with my cretin girl
    My feet won't stop doin' the Cretin Hop
    Cretin, cretin

    One-two-three-four, cretins want to hop some more
    Four-five-six-seven, all good cretins go to heaven

    There's no stoppin' the cretins from hoppin'
    You gotta keep it beatin' for all the hoppin' cretins

    Cretin, cretin
    I'm gonna go for a whirl with my cretin girl
    My feet won't stop doin' the Cretin Hop
    Cretin, cretin

    One-two-three-four, cretins want to hop some more
    Four-five-six-seven, all good cretins go to heaven Writer/s: Douglas Colvin, Jeff Hyman, John Cummings, Thomas Erdelyi

  • Chunk from New Hope MnCretin is a Catholic High School, and you need money to bring your kid there.
  • Zero from The Abyss, NjFor those that don't know a cretin is a person who is physically deformed from a congenial thyroid deficiency or it also be used as a derogatory term for a stupid or unintelligent person.

    This song rocks.
  • Gabriel from Saint Sebastian, Puerto RicoI don't thinks it's a PARODY... more like a tribute or "copied in a good way", they where huge Beatles fans
  • Kendall from Thomasville, GaI think the part "4,5,6,7, all good cretins go to heaven" is a parody of the Beatles song You Never Give Me Your Money where Paul says "1,2,3,4,5,6,7, all good children go to heaven" 21 times I think.
