We were at a party His ear lobe fell in the deep Someone reached in and grabbed it It was a rock lobster. Rock lobster Rock lobster. We were at the beach Everybody had matching towels Somebody went under a dock And there they saw a rock. It wasn't a rock It was a rock lobster. Motion in the ocean His air hose broke Lots of trouble Lots of bubble. He was in a jam He's in a giant clam. Rock, rock Rock lobster Down, down. Underneath the waves Mermaids wavin' Wavin' to mermen Wavin' sea fans. Sea horses sailin' Dolphins wailin'. Red snappers snappin' Clam shells clappin' Mussels flexin' Flippers flippin'.
Their first single, "Rock Lobster," recorded for DB Records in 1978, was an underground success, selling over 2,000 copies in total, that led to the B-52's performing at CBGB and Max's Kansas City in New York City. Both this version of "Rock Lobster" and its B-side "52 Girls" are different recordings from those on their first album, and the early version of "52 Girls" is in a different key. The re-recorded version of "Rock Lobster" was released as a single
Rock Lobster is on the B-52's first album in 1979 - and Love Shack was released on Cosmic Thing in 1989. All the songs on Cosmic Thing were written by the whole band, jamming together trying to kick-start their creativity in the late 1980's after the death of Ricky Wilson. I don't think anyone could have copied the sound that the B52's had. It was just so unique and Rock Lobster is a great example of their individuality. So are soungs like Is That You Mo Dean, Quiche Lorraine, and 52 Girls.
