Desmond has his barrow in the market place,
Molly is the singer with the band,
Desmond says to Molly "Girl I like your face,"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand (YEAH):

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on,
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on.

Desmond takes the trolley to the jewellery store,
Buys a twenty-carat golden ring (ring),
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (YEAH):

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on,
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home,
In a couple of years Molly built a home
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place,
Desmond lets the children lend a hand,
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band (YEAH).

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on,
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home,
In a couple of years Molly built a home
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place,
Desmond lets the children lend a hand,
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band (YEAH).

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on (yeah),
La-la-la-la life goes on...
