Knucklebone Oscar & The Shangri-La Rubies will compete in Finland’s Eurovision national final Uuden Musiikin Kilpailiu (UMK) 2017 with their song “Caveman”. It’s an unashamed party track that urges the listener to “Do the caveman! Wunderbar!”

Channelling the spirit of kitschy 1960s novelty rock, Knucklebone Oscar and the glamorous Shangri-La Rubies deliver a super fun party number, in celebration of getting in touch with one’s inner caveman.

Oscar sets up his situation: “I got no laser, I got no guns/I got the fever burning in my buns”. And you know what happens when someone gots a fever in a pop song.

The chorus comes along with the memorable refrain of the song: “Do the caveman! Wunderbar!” This trilingual extravaganza (there’s also some French thrown in for good luck) knows how to bring the party.

The Shangri-La Rubies set out a manifesto for the good times: “This ain’t no misbehaving/This ain’t no Templar code/This ain’t no fashion feature/This is a life-long show”. I’m glad we cleared that up, then. Wunderbar!

“Caveman” – Knucklebone Oscar & The Shangri-La Rubies (lyrics)

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Ahhhh, ahhhhh, ahhhhhh, ahhhhhh!

Ohhhhhh! Ha ha ha ha ha!

I got no laser, I got no guns
I got the fever burning in my buns

I got no disco, I got no jams
I got no Mickey Mouse pyjama pants

Ready, steady, go

Do the caveman!
Wunderbar!
Caveman!
Wunderbar!

This ain’t no misbehaving
This ain’t no Templar code
This ain’t no fashion feature
This is a life-long show

I am caveman!

Un, deux, trois

I have my guitar, I have my soul
I got my heart set for rock ‘n’ roll

I have my moving, I have my swag
I got my pole set for the loving flag

Ready, steady, go

Do the caveman!
Wunderbar!
Caveman!
Wunderbar!

This ain’t no misbehaving
This ain’t no Templar code
This ain’t no fashion feature
This is a life-long show

Back in the days when the grindasaus ruled the dancefloor, there was a sleaze that everybody knew about. Eight o’clock AM, PM, the people would get up and party and do the caveman.

Caveman!
Wunderbar!
Caveman!
Wunderbar!

This ain’t no misbehaving
This ain’t no Templar code
This ain’t no fashion feature
This is a life-long show

Show for the television
Dinner for the family
This is the fried chicken
This is the DNA

I am caveman!
