"Troglodyte (Cave Man)", originally released as "Troglodite", is a 1972 funk song by The Jimmy Castor Bunch. In the USA, it peaked at #4 on the R&B charts and #6 on the Billboard Hot 100. Billboard ranked it as the No. 80 song for 1972. The song, especially the intro "What we"re gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time", has been heavily sampled in hip-hop music and dance music. A character introduced in the song, Bertha Butt ("one of the Butt Sisters"), was featured in many later Castor Bunch songs, including "The Bertha Butt Boogie" (1975). The song sold over half-a-million copies, and has been certified gold by the RIAA. It charted even better in Canada, where it got to #1 on the singles chart for two weeks.more »

What we"re gonna do right here is go back, way back, back into time.When the only people that existed were troglodytes... Cave men, cave women, Neanderthal, troglodytes. Let"s take the average cave man at home, listening to his stereo. Sometimes he"d get up, try to do his thing. He"d begin to move, something like this,"Dance...dance". When he got tired of dancing alone, he"d look in the mirror,"Gotta find a woman, gotta find a woman, gotta find a woman, gotta find a woman". He"d go down to the lake where all the women would be swimming or washing clothes or something. He"d look around and just reach in and grab one. "Come here...come here".He"d grab her by the hair. You can"t do that today, fellas, "cause it might come off. You"d have a piece of hair in your hand and she"d be swimming away from you (Ha, ha)This one woman just lay there, wet and frightened. He said: "Move... Move". She got up, she was a big woman, big woman. Her name was Bertha, Bertha Butt, she was one of the Butt sisters. He didn"t care. He looked up at her and said,"Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to meSock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me!". She looked down on him.She was ready to crush him, but she began to like him. She said, "I"ll sock it to ya, Daddy". He said, "Wha?". She said, "I"ll sock it to ya, Daddy". You know what he said? He started it way back thenI wouldn"t lie to youWhen she said, "I"ll sock it to ya, Daddy" He said "Right on! Right on! Hotpants! Hotpants! Ugh... Ugh... Ugh".
