"A Bushel and a Peck [From Guys & Dolls]" as written by and Frank Loesser....
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

What'cha doin' Hutton?
Doodlin', can you doodle
Can I doodle, I can't get it outta my noodle
How come

'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck
Hug around the neck and a barrel and a heap
Barrel and a heap and I'm talkin' in my sleep

About you (about me) yes, about you
My heart is leapin', havin' trouble sleepin'
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

(Do you like me Perry?) Oh very, do you like me Hutton?
(Like a glutton) So, where's your 'Como' button?
Oh, I love you a bushel and a peck (how much?)
A bushel an' a peck though you make my heart a wreck

Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess
Make my life a mess, yes a mess of happiness
About you, (about me) yes, about you
You're gonna grieve me, if an' you ever leave me

'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

Heh heh, it's gettin' kinda quiet around here
Oh, we can fix that Perry boy, let's go

I love you a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck and it beats be all to heck
Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arms about you

About you, the cows and chickens
Let 'em go to the dickens
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your purdy neck I do

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle ooh doo, doo (it's gettin' kinda quiet again)
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo

An octave lower please

Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doodle oodle, ooh doo
Doodle oodle, ooh doo, doo
