"Bang-a-Boomerang" as written by Stig Anderson, Benny Goran Bror Andersson and Bjoern K. Ulvaeus....
Making somebody happy is a question of give and take
You can learn how to show it so come on, give yourself a break
Every smile and every little touch
Don't you know that they mean so much
Sweet sweet kisses so tender
Always will return to sender

Like a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dumb-be-dumb-dumb be-dumb-be-dumb-dumb
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum
By giving away, I think you'll learn
You'll get love in return
So bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love
A boom-a-boomerang is love

Love is always around and you can look for it anywhere
When you feel that you've found it my advice is to take good care
Never use it as a selfish tool
Never ever be such a fool
Every feeling you're showing
Is a boomerang you're throwing

Yes a bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dumb-be-dumb-dumb be-dumb-be-dumb-dumb
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum
By giving away, I think you'll learn
You'll get love in return
So bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love

And if you're warm and tender
I'll kiss you, return to sender
Please surrender

Bang, a boom-a-boomerang
Dumb-be-dumb-dumb be-dumb-be-dumb-dumb
Oh bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love
A boom-a-boomerang is love

    General CommentJust a nice little ditty about treating others as you would like to be treated yourself. Often claimed to be ABBAs first song.

    MemoryJust glancing at the bloody TITLE of this song (I don't even have to hear it - it's already playing in my mind) brings me back to 8th grade and the beautiful Swedish amazon who let me borrow her ABBA cassette tape (the one where they are drinking champagne in a limo on the cover). Oh my gosh - the smells,the faces, the rooms, the classmates, the teachers, the self-consciousness, the unrequited prepubescent yearning for Scandinavian beauty -it ALL COMES BACK again...like a boomerang!

    I was at an international school abroad during 8th and 9th grade. It was all new to me. I had never been around so many kids from diverse nations. There were these gorgeous Nordic gals in my class. And I was a scrawny kid who hadn't even stopped playing with toy cars or gotten my first zit yet. They were tall - and blonde - and graceful. They were fully developed women. I was barely up to their chests. They were good at sports - they were serious students... and most of them were even friendly and would actually TALK to me sometimes. It blew my 13 year-old mind.

    ABBA, and this song in particular, encapsulates my nostalgically idealized love for Nordic feminine beauty. The names of those girls are still like magic to me. I hope to tell them all this some day in heaven. Don't laugh.

    That's why years after learning to love ABBA I discovered I also love ACE of BASE!

    Dang - God Almighty created some lovely creatures who left a powerful imprint on my all-too-human mind.
