It's very simple
And easy to do,
All you got to do is just toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo.

Everybody likes it,
Old folks, too,
Everybody's crazy about toodle oodle loo;
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo.

Where you goin', boy?
I'm goin' to town!
Now, how you gonna get there?
I'm gonna toodle oodle down!
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo.

Now, I asked my gal
What she wanted to do,
She said, "Daddy, just toodle oodle loo"
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo!

I'll give you a piece of cake,
I'll give you a piece of pie,
But nary piece of flesh, 'cause meat's too high.
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo!

Now, she toodle looed fast,
She toodle looed slow,
She probably toodle looed,
She can't toodle no more!
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo,
Oh, toodle oodle loo!
