Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

What'cha doin' Hutton?
Doodlin', can you doodle?
Can I doodle? I can't get it outta my noodle
How come?

'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck
A bushel an' a peck and a hug around the neck
Hug around the neck and a barrel an' a heap
Barrel an' a heap an' I'm talkin' in my sleep

About you, about me? Yes, about you
My heart is leapin', havin' trouble sleepin'
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

Do you like me Perry? Oh very, do you like me Hutton?
Like a glutton, so, where's your 'Como' button?
Oh, I love you a bushel an' a peck
A bushel an' a peck though you make my heart a wreck

Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess
Make my life a mess, yes a mess of happiness
About you, about me? Yes, about you
You're gonna grieve me, if an' you ever leave me

'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

Heh heh, it's gettin' kinda quiet around here
Oh, we can fix that Perry boy, let's go

I love you a bushel an' a peck
A bushel an' a peck and it beats be all to heck
Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arms about you

About you, the cows an' chickens
Let 'em go to the dickens
'Cause I love you a bushel an' a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle ooh doo, doo
It's gettin' kinda quiet again
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

An octave lower please!

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo
