"The Dum Dum Ditty" as written by Larry Martine, Sevastos Constanti Venetoulis, Bobby Hart and Tommy Boyce....
He doesn't talk much
But when he does he saying something
(Run-run ditty, run-run ditty)
He lives in the slums,
'Cause his folks never had nothing
(Run-run ditty, run-run ditty)

He's a rebel without a cause
He doesn't do what everyone does
And he makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty, boom-boom

I see him every day,
Hanging 'round the neighbourhood
(Run-run ditty, run-run ditty)
They say stay away, don't talk to him
'Cause he is no good
(Run-run ditty, run-run ditty)

He's a rebel without a cause
He doesn't do what everyone does
And he makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty, boom-boom

How did he ever get in so much trouble?
Sha-da da-da, sha-da da-da da-da
Why do the papers always mention his name?
Sha-da da-da, sha-da da-da da-da.

He's a rebel without a cause
He doesn't do what everyone does
And he makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty
Makes my heart go run-run ditty, boom-boom

Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty)
Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty)
Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty, boom-boom)

Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty)
Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty)
Oh, yeah! (Makes my heart go run-run ditty, boom-boom)
