"Do Wah Diddy Diddy" as written by Jeff Barry, Ellie Greenwich and Andreas Bartels....
There she was just a-walkin' down the street, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Snappin' her fingers and shufflin' her feet, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
She looked good (looked good), she looked fine (looked fine)
She looked good, she looked fine and I nearly lost my mind

Before I knew it she was walkin' next to me, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Holdin' my hand just as natural as can be, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
We walked on (walked on) to my door (my door)
We walked on to my door, then we kissed a little more

Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I'd been dreamin' of

Now we're together nearly every single day, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
A-we're so happy and that's how we're gonna stay, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Well, I'm hers (I'm hers), she's mine (she's mine)
I'm hers, she's mine, wedding bells are gonna chime

Whoa-oh, I knew we was falling in love
Yes I did, and so I told her all the things I'd been dreamin' of

Now we're together nearly every single day, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
A-we're so happy and that's how we're gonna stay, singin' "Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do"
Well, I'm hers (I'm hers), she's mine (she's mine)
I'm hers, she's mine, wedding bells are gonna chime

Whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, we'll sing it
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do, oh yeah, oh, oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

    General Commentthis catchy tune, do-wah diddy-diddy down diddy-do, is so contagious that it has caused a man to be enchanted by a chick swaggering down the street. he is beguiled by her ostensible beauty and her lovely voice. through this melodious tune, this vamp has ingratiated herself with this cool dadio. now they live together and probably share the same bed. all because of a nifty beat.

    General CommentI really like this song and hear it very little on Classic Rock stations. I just now learned who recorded it. I am a slow one to catch to who sings what.

    This is cool version of a love song that could have been recorded in the fifties.

    General CommentYeah, MK, I hear ya on that. I always thought this was some oldies group. I thought Manfred Mann's Earth Band was a classic rock group from the "Blinded By The Light" song which is very classic rocki-ish, as opposed to this song which is very oldies-ish. Both great songs either way.
