The Dipsy Doodle's the thing to beware The Dipsy Doodle will get in your hair And if it gets you, it couldn't be worse The things you say will come out in reverse Like "You love I and me love you" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works The Dipsy Doodle's easy to find You know it's always in back of your mind You never know it, until it's too late And then you're in such a terrible state Like "The moon jumped over the cow, hey diddle" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works Whenever you think you're crazy You're just a victim of the Dipsy Doodle Ah, but it's not your mind that's hazy It's your tongue that's at fault, not your noodle You better listen and try to be good And try to do all the things that you should The Dipsy Doodle will get you some day You'll think you're crazy, the things that you'll say Like "Rhythm got I and hot am I" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works If it gets you, you'll be singin' it And we'll bet you, you'll be swingin' it The Dipsy Doodle's the thing to beware The Dipsy Doodle will get in your hair And if it gets you, it couldn't be worse Ev'rything you say will come out in reverse "You love I and me love you" That is just the way the Dipsy Doodle works Whenever you think you're crazy You're the victim of the Dipsy Doodle But it's not your mind that's hazy It's your tongue that's at fault, not your noodle You better listen and try to be good And try to do all the things that you should The dipsy doodle will get you some day And you'll think you're crazy, the things you'll say "Violets are red, roses are blue" Roses, roses, roses, all around you You'll never know it until too late And then you're in such a terrible state If you wanna do the Doodle, do the Dipsy Doodle Doo, doo, doo, do the Dipsy Doodle Doo, doo, doo, do the Dipsy Doodle Doo, doo, doo, do the Dipsy Doodle Do the Dipsy Doodle now (Transcribed by From the Paul Whiteman/Modernaires recording by Mel Priddle - December 2005) ************************** As recorded by Bill Haley & His Comets: The Dipsy Doodle is the thing to beware The Dipsy Doodle will get in your hair And if it gets you, it couldn't be worse The things you say will come out in reverse Like "You love I and me love you" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works The Dipsy Doodle is easy to find It's almost always in back of your mind You never know it until it's too late And then you're in such a terrible state Like "The moon jumped over the cow, hey diddle" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works When you think that you're crazy You're the victim of the Dipsy Doodle But it's not your mind that's hazy It's your tongue that's at fault, not your noodle You better listen and try to be good And try to do all the things that you should The Dipsy Doodle will get you some day You'll think you're crazy, all the things that you say Like "Rockin' not I and rollin' goodbye" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works (Instrumental Break) Well, when you think you're crazy You're the victim of the Dipsy Doodle But it's not your mind that's hazy It's your tongue that's at fault, not your noodle You better listen and try to be good And try to do all the things that you should The dipsy doodle will get you some day You'll think you're crazy, all the things that you say Like "Roll, rattle and shake alligator" That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works That's the way the Dipsy Doodle works (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - June 2006) **************************
