(Instrumental Break) (Scat Singing) Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (More scat) Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (More scat) Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (Transcribed from The Mills Brothers recording by Bill Huntley - June 2005) ****** There are other verses to this song that are rarely heard. Unfortunately, the only recording we have been able to find is extremely difficult to transcribe. This is the best we can do: There's a spot I know, a place I go Somewhere by the sea ????? ????? at the boat They palaver in a code They command each other Understand each other perfectly Love ??????? that are free You don't give them repartee Wooing a tropical maiden Doesn't need topical talk You manouvre her and if you approve her You can win her in a walk Oh, Zulu man is feeling blue Hear his heart beat a little tattoo Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (Scat singing) You love me and I love you When you love it is natural to Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (Scat singing) I'm so very Diga Diga Doo by nature If you don't say Diga Diga to your mate You're gonna lose your Poppa So, let those funny people smile How can there be a Virgin Isle with Diga Diga Doo, Diga Doo Doo (Scat singing) (Transcribed from a recording by Jack Hylton & Chappie d'Amato by Mel Priddle - June 2005) ****** TRIVIA: In the Betty Grable version, the line "How can there be a Virgin Isle" was replaced by "Take me to that South Seas isle". ******
