[Verse 1]
I’ve just heard a melody,
That is always haunting me,
Funny little strain
Running thru my brain
It’s as sweet as can be.
It has such a pleading way.
Tho’ it’s with me night and day,
When I hear someone playing I walk right up and say:

[Verse 2]
I’ve hear all the melodies,
From the blues to rhapsodies,
They all come and go
But there one I know
That’ll linger and tease.
I’ve found all the blues a pest,
Rhapsodies to me a jest,
So if you want to please me,
Just take this one request.

Please play for me
That sweet melody
Doodle Doo-Doo Doodle Doo-Doo,
I like the rest
But what I like best
Is doodle doo-doo,
Doodle doo doo
Simplest thing,
There’s nothing much to it,
Don’t have to sin, just doodle doo doo it
I love it so
Wherever I go I doodle doo doo doodle doo doo doo
