Lyrics with pictures REX: Roll back the rock to the dawn of timeRoll back the rock to the dawn of time / When the Earth was smoking and the lava flowed / Roll back the rock to the dawn of time / And blow your cool just like a volcano / Snap your fingers and stomp your feetSnap your fingers and stomp your feet / Soaking up a little of the jungle beatSoaking up a little of the jungle beat / Roll back the rock to the dawn of time / And sing this song with mesing this song with me / Roll back the rock ALL: Roll back the rock REX: Turn back the clock ALL: Turn back the clock / Roll back the rock to the dawn of time / And sing this song with me LOUIE: No! REX: Turn back the clock baby you can see / Why the twentieth century appeals to me (20th)! / So much to learn and so much to do / And a zillion wonderful things to chew / Roll back the rock ALL: Roll back the rock REX: Turn back the clock ALL: Turn back the clock REX: Roll back the rock to the dawn of time / And sing this song with me LOUIE: So, Cecilia, what do you think of my friends? CECILIA: I think they're swank, first rank. Top hat, right down to their tails. LOUIE: Say what? CECILIA: And I like you, too. Hey, shut up with that. LOUIE: What are you, sappy? REX: If you're thinking this guy's unreal / Just imagine how I must feel / Just imagine how I must feel / Human beings, what a meal! / Roll back the rock to the dawn of time / And sing this song with me REX [speaking]: Hey, hey. what do you know? There's another fella just like me. Good to see somebody of a similar persuasion, if you know what I mean.
