He thought a lotta la de da da oughta be in a sonata

This sonata gotta a lotta la de da

But don’t bet that it’s done for doodle deedle dee dee
No not yet we’ve a ton more doodle deedle dee dee

And (dum, dum, dum, dum) There’s some dum dum
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) Don’t ask how come
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) Or where it’s from
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) But when it’s through
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) Here’s what we do
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) We move on to
(Dum, dum, dum, dum) Something that’s new

Doodle deedle doodle, deedle, Doodle deedle doodle, deedle,
Doodle deedle doodle, deedle, Doodle deedle doodle, deedle, dee

That’s a lotta of la de da, dum dum and doodle dee
Now let’s do it one more time again in harmony

SECOND VERSE

Mozart’s Sonata in C
Same as before doodle deedle doodle dee

Then we’ll repeat a lotta la, de, da, da, la, de, da, da
‘Til we complete a lotta, la, de, da, da, la, de, da, da

If you forgot a lotta la de da da la de da
There’s not a lotta la de da da left in this sonata

Whether or not we got a lotta la, de, da we gotta
Finish this sonata then we oughta all say thanks a lotta
