Papa Oom Mow Mow - The Rivingtons

Papa Oom Mow Mow

The Rivingtons

(Frazier - White, Liberty 55427, 1962)

Papapapapa-oom-mow-mow-mow, papa-oom-mow-mow
Papapa-oom-ma-ma-ma-mow, papa-oom-mow-mow

Funniest sound I ever heard
And I can't understand a single word
Is he serious or is he playin'
A-oom-mow-mow is all he's sayin'
Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-ooh

I said a-hey there problem girl what's your name?
Now, don't you dare tell me the same old thing
The words you sing I can't figure out
But oo-wee that sound makes me stomp and shout
Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-oooh

Now, I hear this sound everywhere I go
On the records, TV, and the radio
And now it's spreadin' all over the land
I still can't seem to understand
Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-ooh

Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-ooh
Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-ooh
Papa-ooh, papapapapapa-ooh
