Gilbert O’Sullivan - Ooh-wakka-doo-wakka-day
Tekst en muziek: Gilbert O’Sullivan
(1972)






I want to tell you
I might as well do
About a girl I met back in May
Her name is Rita
And you should see her
When she goes
Ooh wakka doo wakka day



She’s got a brother
Like any other
Who got his nose caught inside a gate
And when they freed him
It so relieved him
He just went
Ooh wakka doo wakka day



You wouldn’t think to look at me that I was strong
But underneath it all, I really am
And just to prove it, why only the other day
I picked a needle up with one hand, oh



Now up in Bradford
A chap named Radford
While taking part in a local play
Was intercepted
And then suspected
Of going
Ooh wakka doo wakka day



Ay ay ay
Who’s that lady I saw you with
It was not your wife
It looked to me suspiciously
Like someone I have never seen before in my life



Do dodedode dodedo dodedo, dodedo
Dodedo dodedo dodedodedo
Do dodedode dodedo dodedo, dodedo
Dodedodedo dodedo



It’s not surprising when you come to think of it
Just what it is that makes people swear
You only have to sing the wrong bleepin’ thing
And there’ll be bleeping every bleeping where



Now if you love me
You’re not above me
And if you don’t, well, what can I say
Except, will see when
You come to tea, then
You can go
Ooh wakka doo wakka
Ooh wakka doo wakka
Ooh wakka doo wakka day
