Lyrics


Oh come on and
Oh come on and
Oh come on and

In the beginning there was thunder
My mate and I would wander
The garden was no Eden
That we'd be needin'
Eating adam's apple seemed a shame
Although no serpent came 
Temptation never drained from my veins

Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea 
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, baby
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me

This world frightened her to death
I wacked her on the head
And dragged her to my cave
Where she'd be safe
She woke up shakin' in her skins
Our love affair begins
With lots of sticks and stones
And broken bones

Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea 
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, baby
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me

(Fall of Man)

The day I left she grabbed her club
And raised it to the sun
And beat it on the ground like a drum
Primative rhythms filled the air
To tell romantics "beware"
The Stone Age life is hard for a woman

Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea 
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, baby
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me

We stacked a rockpile of regrets
And catapulted secrets
And sabertoothed our way from day to day
She cut me down with her jagged kisses
I couldn't keep her wishes
The fall of man began
But still I stand

Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea 
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, baby
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me, yea
Oh come on and bang-a-lang with me
