Gilbert O'Sullivan – Oh-Wakka-Do-Wakka-Day lyrics

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
And 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
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
Hey, hey...
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
Doo-doo doo-di-doo...
It's not suprising when you come to think of it
Just what it is that makes people swear
You only have to sing about bleepin' thing
And there'll be bleeping ev'ry-bleeping-where
Now, if you love me, you're not above me
And if you don't, well, what can I say
Except we'll see when you come to tea, then
You can go Ooh wakka doo wakka
Ooh wakka doo wakka
Wakka doo
Wakka day
