"Alley-Oop" as written by and Dallas Frazier....
(Oop-oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

There's a man in the funny papers we all know
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He lives way back a long time ago
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He don't eat nothin' but a bear cat stew
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Well, this cat's name is Alley-Oop
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

He got a chauffeur that's a genuine dinosaur
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
And he can knuckle your head before you count to four
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)

He got a big ugly club and a head full of hair
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like great big lions and grizzly bears
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
(Alley-Oop) Wearin' clothes from a wildcat's hide
(Alley-Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
(Look at that cave man go!) (Scream!)

He rides through the jungle, tearin' limbs off of trees
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Knockin' great big monsters dead on their knees
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
The cats don't bug him 'cause they know better
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
'Cause he's a mean motor scooter and a bad go-getter
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
(Alley-Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
(Alley-Oop) Wears clothes from a wildcat's hide
(Alley-Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
(Look at that cave man go!) (Scream!)

There he goes
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Look at that cave man go
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He sure is hip, ain't he?
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like what's happening
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
He's too much
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Ride, daddy, ride
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Hi-yo, dinosaur
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Ride, daddy, ride
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Get 'em, man
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
Like hips ville
(Alley-Oop, oop, oop, oop-oop)
