OOBY DOOBY

Original Roy Orbison And The Teen Kings version


Hey baby, jump over here
When you do the ooby-dooby I just gotta be near
Ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby
Ooby-dooby ooby-dooby ooby-dooby, dooby-do-wah-do-wah-do-wah

Well you wiggle to the left, you wiggle to the right
You do the ooby-dooby with all of your might
Ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby
Ooby-dooby ooby-dooby ooby-dooby, dooby-do-wah-do-wah-do-wah

Well you wriggle and you shake, like a bit rattle snake
You do the ooby dooby 'till you think her heart'll break
Ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby
Ooby-dooby ooby-dooby ooby-dooby, dooby-do-wah-do-wah-do-wah

Well you've been strutting 'cause now you know
How to do the ooby dooby, baby let's go
Ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby
Ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, ooby-dooby, dooby-do-wah-do-wah-do-wah
