"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (The Beatles cover)" as written by John Lennon and Paul Mccartney....
Cha, cha, cha, cha
Hook it up, hook it up, hook it up, hook it up, hook it up, hook it up

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly-girl I like your face
And she says this as she takes him by the hand.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolly to the jewellers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones.

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly 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.

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones, ha ha ha

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

Obladi oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on
Obladi Oblada life goes on bra
Lala how the life goes on.

And if you want some fun-take Obladi Oblada.

    General CommentThe Beatles are highly over-rated, IMO.

    I think the band does a great job on this cover.
