The B-52's - Rock Lobster (1978)


From the album The B-52's in 1978



We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a rock lobster!

Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!

We were at the beach
Everybody had matching towels
Somebody went under a dock
And there they saw a rock
It wasn't a rock
It was a rock lobster!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!
((High Pitched)) Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!

Commotion in the ocean
His air hose broke!
Lots of troubles!
Lots of bubbles!
He was in a jam!
(He wa)s'in a giant clam!!!

Rock, Rock

Rock Lobster!!!
Down, down...

Underneath the waves
Mermaids wavin'
Wavin' to mermen
Wavin' sea fans
Sea horses sailin'
Dolphins wailin'

Rock Lobster!!!
((High Pitched)) Rock Lobster!!!

Rock Lobster!!!
Rock Lobster!!!
Oooo aah!
Oooo aah!
Red snappers snappin'
Oooo aah!
Clam shells clappin'
Oooo aah!
Muscles flexin'
Oooo aah!
Flippers flippin'
Oooo aah!

Rock, Rock,
Rock Lobster
Down! Down!

Lobster... Rock
Lobster... Rock

Let's rock!!!

Boys and bikinis
Girls and surfboards
Everybody's rockin'
Everybody's frugin'

Twistin' round the fire
Havin' fun!

Bakin' potatoes
Bakin' in the sun!

Put on your noseguard
Hit on the Lifeguard
Pass the tanning butter

Here comes a stingray
There goes a mantaray
In walked a jelly fish
There goes a dogfish
Chased by a catfish
In flew a sea robin
Watch out for that piranha!
There goes a narwhal
HERE COMES A BIKINI WHALE!

Lobster rock lobster
ROCK LOBSTER
lobster rock ay ay ah ah
ROCK LOBSTER
lobster rock lobster
ROCK LOBSTER
Lobster rock ay ay ah ah oo
ROCK LOBSTER
Ay ay ah ah oo
Ay ay ah ah oo

Soy fan total de los primeros trabajos de los b-52s, siempre a reivindicar y siempre un placer reescuchar el Rock lobster. Abrazo.

Completamente de acuerdo contigo, son una banda con un sonido único, solo por eso tenía que estar aquí...

Saludos.
