Facts:
  • Lead singer Gary Paxton recorded this as a solo artist, since he was still under contract to Brent Records, where he recorded as Flip of "Skip And Flip." He made up the name Hollywood Argyles - the recording studio was on Hollywood Boulevard and Argyle Street. When this became a hit, Paxton put together a Hollywood Argyles group, made up of Bobby Rey, Ted Marsh, Gary Webb, Deary Weaver and Ted Winters. This ended up being their only hit. (MarlinsGirl)
  • Song Lyrics:
    (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    Theres a man in the funny papers we all know (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    He lived 'way back a long time ago (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    He don't eat nothin' but a bear cat stew (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    Well, this cat's name is-a Alley Oop (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)

    He got a chauffeur that's a genuwine dinosawuh (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    And he can knuckle your head before you count to fawuh (Alley Oop, oop, oop-
    oop)

    He got a big ugly club and a head fulla hairuh (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    Like great big lions and grizzly bearuhs (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    (Alley Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
    (Alley Oop) Wearin' clothes from a wildcat's hide
    (Alley Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
    (Look at that cave man go!!) (SCREAM)

    He rides through the jungle tearin' limbs offa trees (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    Knockin' great big monstas dead on their knees (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    The cats don't bug him cuz they know betta (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    Cuz he's a mean mota scoota and a bad go-getta (Alley Oop, oop, oop-oop)
    (Alley Oop) He's the toughest man there is alive
    (Alley Oop) Wearin' clothes from a wildcat's hide
    (Alley Oop) He's the king of the jungle jive
    (Look at that cave man go!!) (SCREAM)

    Thair he goes, look at that cave man go
    He sure is hip ain't he?
    Like what's happening?
    He's too much
    Ride, Daddy, ride
    Hi-yo dinosawuh
    Ride, Daddy, ride
    Get 'em, man
    Like--hipsville.

    Another version of the song was recorded by Dante And The Evergreens.

    This song was one of the few songs that premiered at a peak position of number one for the group and then the group did not have another charted song.
