  • Song Lyrics:
    Zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom
    ze-ze-ze-zoom, zoom, zoom, zoom.

    Back in history before time began
    All the real cool cats had a solid plan
    When they dug a nervous chick they all, to a man, went
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    You wanna be cool man? Go ape!

    The almighty Joe swingin' through the trees
    Was the king of everything that roosted in the leaves
    But when he saw a girl ape, a-hangin' in the breeze, he went
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    You like to be hip boy? Go ape!

    A big dinosaur was a long, tall lizard
    He drift through the jungle like a slow blizzard
    But when he got a double take at a lady lizard, he did
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    You wanna be sharp cat? Go ape

    A pterodactyl was a flyin' fool
    Just a... - I thought I'd break
    in and tell you what a pterodactyl was. Well, it was sort of a stork lookin bat with sharp teeth that cruised around lookin' for... say, we haven't changed a bit, have we cats?

    A pterodactyl was a flyin' fool
    Just a breeze flappin daddy of the old school
    But a mama dactyl could sure make him drool
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    Don't be a square Joe. Go ape!

    Now old papa tiger was the boss of the Nile
    Just a sport model cat with a solid style
    He was old King Cool 'til a girl tiger smiled
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    Bee-zorch daddy-o, go ape!

    Adam was the first boy in the land
    A big malaroony daddy with an iron hand
    But when little Eva said, Hiya, Man
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!

    Ape call, doodly - ah - bah
    Don't be a cube, rube. Go ape!

    So remember to Ape Call today .... yeah!
    Aaaaah - eee - yaaah!
