Alley-Oop
Sha Na Na Lyrics


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 lived 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, and this cat's name is a Alley Oop
Alley Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop
He's 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′s got a big ugly club and a head full of hair, air
Alley Oop Oop, Oop, Oop Oop
A-like a great big lion and grizzly bear
Alley Oop, Oop, Oop, Oop Oop
Alley Oop, he's the toughest man there is alive
Alley Oop, wearin′ clothes from a wild cat's hide
Alley Oop, he′s the king of the jungle jive
Look at that cave man go
He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs off a tree
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, wearin′ clothes from a wild cat's hide
Alley Oop, he′s the king of the jungle jive
Look at that cave man go
Alley Oop Oop, Oop, Oop Oop
(There he goes)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop, Oop Oop
(A 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
(Ride, Alley, ride)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop, Oop Oop
(Hi-yo dinosaur)
Alley Oop Oop, Oop, Oo

I will always be a fan of Sha Na Na but Ginger is the one I want to go native with.😂

Lisa Koffler

Really? I didn't like how she treated the guys in the car scenes!

Kátia Camila

Great tune! Thanks for sharing and thank you so much to all Sha-Na-Na group for everything! Warm greetings from Brazil!

Jeff Thiedeman

Always loved this group...

I saw this line-up in concert years ago. Great show and hardest working act in show business. I sure missed Dirty Dan when he left. Any idea why> I did notice that he'd gained some weight by then time he came through with the group - always wondered if there were any health issues. Thanks so much for posting these clips.

BOTH Danny and Chico are now deceased.

I wasn't expecting a skit like this, and I couldn't stop laughing!

I always love Sha Sha Na those lovable greasers from the past. How many of them actually still alive and also sadly how many of them actually went to the singing group in the sky? I watched them on TV with my dad in the 1970s. They know how to sing with a comedy show mixed together. I love how Bowser always do his thing; mouth opened, head tilted back, and his fists in the air.

I'm a 90's kid, my mother new I was an old so because of my love for the oldie doo-waps... she introduced Sha Na Na and I still love them.

Oh, yeah, I had heard about Chico. Danny and Chico made a great pair on the show and now again.
