"Whoop De Doo" as written by and Mark Knopfler....
If I'm over the moon
It's because I'm over you
A day at a time
And I'm tickety-boo
I don't carry on
The way I used to
Whoop de doo whoop de doo

If I'm doing great
It's because when I get home
I don't go straight
To my answerphone
And the tears don't come
The way they used to
Whoop de doo whoop de doo

So many little things
Are so much better now
They were only the little things

If I'm over the moon
It's because that's what I am
Funny that once
I used to give a damn
And I'd do anything
In the whole wide world for you
Whoop de doo whoop de doo

Anything you'd want me to
Whoop de doo
Whoop de doo

    Song MeaningIts a break up song, that's clear. The best part of the song is the sarcasm. The narrator is clearly sad about it, as is clear from the tune and the general feel of the song. But he is trying to put up a brave face. He says how much he missed being with his ex, while seemingly on the surface his words are happy. The pain with which 'whoop de doo' is said is really touching.
