Well I was walking in the mainland city,
And I was feeling so alone;
I was looking for someone or thing,
To remind me of my home.

What I wouldn’t give to have somebody nod or wink at me,
‘Cause that’s the way we say hello in my home down by the sea.
We never say, “Hello” or “How’s it going?” “Good day” or any of that;
We just look at them and nod our heads and wink,
And say, “Whadd’ya at?” Whadd’ya at?

How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today?

But then I walked into a shopping mall and much to my surprise,
An old friend from my hometown was a sight for my sore eyes;
And of all the people I met down in the city or in the mall,
I think I like my hometown friend the best one of them all.

Because he didn’t say, “Hello” or “How’s it going?” “Good day?” or any of that;
My old friend he just looked at me and smiled,
And said, “Whadd’ya at?” Whadd’ya at?

How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today?

Everybody must say “Whadd’ya at?”
All together now. Whadd’ya at?

How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today?

Let this be a lesson to all our people who go away,
Remember if you meet someone the special words we say.
We don’t ever say, “Hello” or “How’s it going?” “Good day”, or any of that;
You just look at them and nod your head, now wink, And say, “Whadd’ya At?”

Whadd’ya at?

How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today? Whadd’ya at?
How’s she going buddy, Whadd’ya at today?
