Don’t know where
but I’m sure we’ll soon find out
where we’re going I said
don’t know
reruns of Caddyshack
oom la boom la bi de li day

don’t know where the Dalai Lama is today
don’t know where my heart is roaming to
before you turn around
before you turn around
I think I know
a little boy

With each day now
I’m tasting the snow beneath my soul
beneath the souls of my souls
with each day now
you’re in me now
said, oom la boomleigh
said, love that bus ride wherever it’s taking me
and Johnny and Mister P

hold my hand
just hold my hand
oom la boomleigh

    General CommentFrom what I can discern, the title is Dutch and means something along the lines of "Uncle Lee the Tree". I don't know if it is a Netherlands pop culture reference, an expression or just something Marcel translated over the P.A. for Tori when she was composing during a soundcheck. No one seems to know much about where and when this song originates from. I've heard that there is an unreleased studio recording, maybe from the Pele era, which wouldn't be surprising, as Tori did reportedly record over 65 songs during those sessions but I've also heard of a demo which could be a misnomer. The only recording I've heard is a broadcast recording during which Tori performed two unreleased original songs, "Oom la Boomleigh" and "Abbey Road". That recording matches the published lyrics word for word and could easily be mistaken for a demo recording, as the fidelity is not great but the recording is clearly audible. It's roughly equivalent to bootlegged demo versions of "Honey" and various songs from Little Earthquakes.
