Rock Lobster – The B-52’s

A much younger Kate Pierson, and a beautiful hairdo. A vintage video of a new wave song. Does it still qualify as new wave. Guess so.

Lyrics:

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

Rock lobster
Rock lobster

Motion in the ocean
His air hose broke
Lots of trouble
Lots of bubble

He was in a jam
He’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
Rock lobster

Rock lobster
Rock lobster

Red snappers snappin’
Clam shells clappin’
Mussels flexin’
Flippers flippin’

Rock, rock
Rock lobster
Down, down

Lobster
Rock lobster
Rock
Let’s rock

Boys in bikinis
Girls in surfboards
Everybody’s rockin’
Everybody’s fruggin’

Twistin’ ’round the fire
Havin’ fun
Bakin’ potatoes
Bakin’ in the sun

Put on your nose guard
Put on the lifeguard
Pass the tannin’ butter

Here comes a stringray
There goes a manta ray
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

Rock lobster
Rock lobster
Rock lobster
Rock lobster
