Bedrock Anthem

Album: Alapalooza (1993)
  • Sometimes I feel
    Like I need a vacation
    Sometimes I feel
    Like I want to go
    To the city of cavemen
    The city of Bedrock
    I'd be a Flinstone
    Now I'll tell you why

    Well, I've got I've got a woman named Wilma
    Well, I've got I've got a baby named Pebbles
    Well, I've got I've got a doggy named Dino
    We do a little bowling and we drink a little vino

    Well, I've got a little buddy, Barney Rubble
    Got a neighbor by the name of Barney Rubble
    He's a midget but he makes a lot of trouble
    Doesn't like to shave, he got caveman stubble

    Me and Barney, Loyal Order Water Buffalo
    Lodge brothers, Loyal Order Water Buffalo
    There's a handshake everybody gotta know
    How come grand Poo-Bah always gotta run the whole show?

    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    I get by on all my prehistoric knowhow

    Betty and Barney got a baby named Bamm-Bamm
    Little Pebbles is his number one fan
    He's the strongest toddler in the whole land
    Tear your arm off if he shakes your hand

    Got a car, gonna push it with my feel now
    Gonna take my family out to eat now
    Jumbo ribs at the drive-in can't be beat now
    Made from brontosaurus, baby, not a moo-cow

    Want to chill with a Sabretooth Tiger
    Wear a loincloth, natural fiber
    Be the first Rolling Stone subscriber
    Got a pterodactyl for a windshield wiper

    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Don't know what it means but I say it anyhow

    Luck me, workin' down in the gravel put
    Movin' rocks, on a big dinosaur I sit
    Mr. Slate gets mad and he throws a fit
    Pull the birdie's tail, everybody knows it's time to quit

    I realize I'm living in the Stone Age
    No fax, no cellular phone-Age
    Pick my teeth with a dinosaur bone-Age
    Liftin' heavy boulders every day for my wage

    Barney Rubble, laughin' like a hyena
    Barney Rubble, what a little weiner
    Where's Wilma? Anybody seen her?
    Got a baby elephant vacuum cleaner

    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now
    Yabba dabba, yabba dabba dabba do now Writer/s: ANTHONY KIEDIS, CHAD SMITH, JOHN ANTHONY FRUSCIANTE, MICHAEL BALZARY, WEIRD AL YANCOVIC, WEIRD AL YANKOVIC
