Yes, Irie man

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
And Molly is a singer in the band
Desmond says to Molly, "Girl, I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewelers store
And buys a 20 carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly standing at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing, yes

In a couple of years
They have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running
In the yard of Desmond and Molly Jones

Don't worry be happy let the good vibes flow
Lyrics to lyrics to rock your soul
Lightnin' a flash and the thunder a roll
Music a play and we out control

Love is not gamble, love is not a toy
Love is just a thing that everybody enjoy
Don't worry be happy, make the good vibes flow
Big it up, big it up and let the whole world know

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
While Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she'll be jammin' with the band, yes

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on

Ob-la-di-ob-la-da, life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
Ob-la-di-ob-la-da life goes on, yeah
Na, na, na, na, life goes on
