I think they are mocking the "cool People" of Hollywood today.

Who all have "the look" and the connection in the industry to make you
life miserable.

But nobody knows how they got there.

I wonder if Van Halen fans spend this much time trying to figure out
what that group's songs are about?

oh, you should see some of the dopey discussions about "jump."

'duh, he's talking about jumping off a bridge."

"nuh-huh, he's talking about jumping off a roof."

"no way dude, he's talking about jumping on a chick and fucking her."

Lyrics:

He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!
He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!

He said his name was Cameo
He does a nasty funk-style retro
He drove a bright red '67 GTO
He liked to let his Elvis-style hair grow

Uh huh, Uh huh (x2)

He was a black belt loaded with skills
He spoke slow choosing words that could kill
Honest people didn't need to fear him
But do not cross that Native American

Cameo! Cameo! (x2)
He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!
He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!

He would whisper "White Man speak with forked tongue"

Before he was finished talking, you'd be goin' down

He'd repeat "White Man speak with forked tongue"

But by that time / you'd be long dead / and buried in the ground

Cameo! Cameo! (x2)
He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!
He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!

He wore a white leather racing jacket
Zipped wide open so you could check out
His tanned body and his clean-shaved pecs
And the turquoise jewelry dangling from his neck

Uh huh, Uh huh (x2)

He said his name was Cameo, Cameo!
He said His name was Cameo, Cameo!
Cameo, Cameo! (x2)
