"Mr. Brownstone" by Guns N' Roses

Appetite for Destruction by Guns N' Roses was the greatest album released during my teen years, a bona fide classic amid tons of late 1980s crap. They wrote plenty of lewd lyrics of their own, but my rewrite actually isn't lewd, just silly. Nonetheless, I find myself singing these modified lyrics whenever I hear this song.

Original lyrics:
We've been dancin' with Mr. Brownstone
He's been knockin'
He won't leave me alone

Not-so-lewd lyrics:
We've been dancin' with Mr. Flintstone
Yabba dabba
Yabba dabba doo

I promise we'll get back to the sick, perverted stuff next time.
