Lyrics

Tonight I’d like to write a simple song for you

A simple song that Elvis would approve

The kind that echoed through the cars

Before a high school sock-hop started

Doooo-wop dee dooooooo

 

Tonight I’d like to write a simple song for you

With simple chords that Chuck Berry might use

The kind that filled the summer nights 

Behind a diner’s neon lights

Doooo-wop dee dooooooo

 

I’d write a doo-wop symphony

With a shoo-wop melody

An orchestra of ooo’s and ah’s

Doobie-doo’s and sha-la-la’s

There’d be a section for the hey-hey-hey’s

A solo for the baby-baby’s

A doo-wop symphony full of “you are all I need’s” and

Doo-wop dee dooooo

 

And it goes: Hey, hey baby I got love on the way

I got a real heart racer like a cold lemonade

It goes ooooo-oo-oo-oooo sha la la

And I said: Hey, hey baby I know you’re here to stay

You got those candy apple lips that I’m ready to taste

Ah-like ooooo-oo-oo-oooo sha la la

I got a blue heart baby ever since it broke

And there’s a fire in between us I been wantin’ to stoke

It's like ah ooooo-oo-oo-oooo sha la la          

I want a  Jerry Lee Lewis here to sing and fight

I want a rock-a-billy rhythm on a Saturday night

I want a Ooooo-oo-oo-ooo sha la la

I want a Supreme girl and a hot Ronette

With their microphones and their sparkly dress

I want a doo-wop symphony to sing tonight

 

I'd write a doo-wop symphony

With a shoo-wop melody

An orchestra of ooo’s and ah’s

Doobie-doo’s and sha-la-la’s

There’d be a section for the hey-hey-hey’s

A solo for the baby-baby’s

A doo-wop symphony full of “you are all I need’s” and

Doo-wop dee dooooo  oooooo

       

Tonight I’d like to write a simple song for you
