This song is by Clutch and appears on the album Robot Hive / Exodus (2005).

Original video
Ain't no doubt Jesus sees us
Acting foolishly on American Bandstand
Agog with spastic baskets, the latest fashions
Here I am, here I am, here I am

But that chin music sound, oh how it drowns
You gotta shake 'em on down

Scaling up the heights of folly
(Na na na, na na na)
Scaling up the heights of folly
(Na na na, na na na)

Kill the lights and bring the music down
Everybody be quiet

Sudden movement on the Serengeti, get ready Freddy
Opportunity only knocks once
Never mind the fat ones, just go for the slow ones
See how they run, see how they run, see how they run

While you were busy lighting Roman candles on the yellowcake
They shook you on down
When the rain start falling, boatman calling
Got to shake 'em on down

The flood receding
The mountain appears
Send out the blackbird
Send out the dove

You Babel rabble-rousers in polyester trousers
Big bright cities
Ain't no doubt Vishnu missed you, then Kali kissed you
Better get busy, better get busy, better get busy

Days get shorter, air gets colder
Tune on into the N.O.A.A. radio

Scaling up the heights of folly
(Hail, hail hail, hail, hail, hail)
Scaling up the heights of folly
(Na na na, na na na)

While you were busy lighting Roman candles on the yellowcake
They shook you on down
When the rain start falling, boatman calling
Shake 'em on down

While you were busy lighting Roman candles on the yellowcake
They shook you on down
When the rain start falling, boatman calling
Shake 'em on down

The flood receding
The mountain appears
Send out the blackbird
Send out the dove
