Below are the lyrics to Rock Lobster by the B52`s , a weird song that makes no sense at all. This song was pretty popular "in the day" (
) and it seems pretty odd , like theres a code in there somewhere ......... anyone want to help me pick this thing to bits ?

Rock Lobster :
www.metrolyrics.com...

We were at a party
His ear lobe fell in the deep
Someone reached in and grabbed it
It was a 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
Motion in the ocean


*cough*

Pretty sure its just a dumb song.

Does any B52's song make sense, lyrically?

lol doubtful. Many songs are just pure randomness







Vulcanize the whoopee stick
In the ham wallet

Cattle prod the oyster ditch
With the lap rocket

Batter dip the cranny ax
In the gut locker

Retrofit the pudding hatch
Ooh la la
With the boink swatter

If i get you in the loop when I make a point to be straight with you then
In lieu of the innuendo in the end know my intent though
I brazillian wax poetic so hypothetically
I don't wanna beat around the bush

Foxtrot Unifrom Charlie Kilo
Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo

Marinate the nether rod
In the squish mitten

Power drill the yippee bog
With the dude piston

Pressure wash the quiver bone
In the bitch wrinkle

Cannonball the fiddle cove
Ooh la la
With the pork steeple

If i get you in the loop when I make a point to be straight with you then
In lieu of the innuendo in the end know my intent though
I brazillian wax poetic so hypothetically
I don't wanna beat around the bush

Foxtrot Unifrom Charlie Kilo
Foxtrot Uniform Charlie Kilo

Put the you know what in the you know where
Put the you know what in the you know where
Put the you know what in the you know where
Put the you know what in the you know where pronto

Code??? or just a song

Tons of sexual inuendo in this song.......I think it's about an orgy......I would try and point out the references I see in more detail, lol, but not sure I could do that and remain "tasteful" ....


Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but that's what I see.....

Foxtrot, Uniform, Charlie, Kilo is totally a secret-code song. The title itself is a code. Which I can't actually write out here, as it's against the rules. But if you look hard enough you'll find it, ha ha.

The whole song is a series of euphemisms and double entendres.

I used to live in Athens, GA about 15 years ago and I can tell you the rumors that I heard about this song.
I have actually met Fred Schneider a coupla times.
I was a bartender at one of his favorite joints in the ATL, and he had this other late night spot where he liked to hang out and I would run into him there frequently.
The place where I used to sling drinks was this snooty fancy upscale place where tons of celebrities would come drink, but the place where he liked to hang out late night was a gay bar, big surprise there.
My girlfriend at the time... her best friend had a big hush hush affair with him.
Obviously my ex-girlfriend's best friend was a gay male.
Actually all of her friends were gay. So, needless to say, we got sauced at many a gay bar.

Anyway... I am rambling. What I am trying to say is that I never asked him what the song meant, but I have had people whom I trust tell me some stories about what influenced him to write the lyrics.

I don't know if anyone has ever been to Athens, but to say that the town parties is quite the understatement.
Back when this song was written, it was the late 70's.
And the majority of the lyrics were actually improvised while the main riff in the song was as well.
Times were a lot different back then and apparently Fred Schneider was a bit of a drag queen.
Some of the lyrics are a play on words for different situations that happened to Fred at these crazy parties in Athens.
He would take these situations and kind of freestyle lyrics on top of them.

One lyric is "his earlobe fell in the deep" and the actual lyric came from a time where he was dressed in drag and his earbob fell off into a bowl of dip. (an earbob is Southern slang for earring).
I think that he actually mentions this in an interview.

The part that everyone knows.... the "down.... down... down.. down..." part was written because he was starting to feel sad and down while he was writing the song.

The majority of the lyrics concerned these parties that everyone would attend.
Each one had a theme and sometimes people would dress up, sometimes everyone would be naked, sometimes everyone would drink electric kool-aid (if you know what I mean).

So that is what I know.

I hope that it helped.

This is the best of all B-52's songs. I guess to tie it in to the thread, I'll ask, why is she giving him fish?

I'm pretty sure all of their songs make no sense, or at best, very little sense. But I still enjoy them for nostalgia reasons

Wow,that is a cool story bro.
There is this bar I went to a few times in Atlanta,2 or 3 floors,and one floor was the ,shall I say,leather and chains?

Sometimes ,well most times people misinterpret lyrics in a song.
