Ja-Da
by Arthur Fields

You've heard all about your raggy melodies
Ev'rything from opera down to harmony
But I've a little song that I will sing to you
It's going to win you through and through

There ain't much to the words, but the music is grand
And you'll be singing it to beat the band
Now you've heard of your "Will O' The Wisp"
But give a little listen to this

It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
That's a funny little bit of melody
It's so soothing and appealing to me
It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing!

(BILLY MURRAY: Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing)
(ARTHUR FIELD (Spoken): Kinda got you going, hey Billy?)
(BILLY MURRAY (Spoken): It certainly has. I'm humming it all the time)
(BILLY MURRAY: It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing!)

Now ev'ryone was singing a Hawaiian strain
Ev'ryone seemed to have it on their brain
When Yaka Hicky Hoola Do was all the craze
Why that's the one that had 'em dazed

The object now is for something new
Something that will appeal to you
And here's a little melody that you will find
Will linger, linger there on your mind

It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
That's a funny little bit of melody
It's so soothing and appealing to me
It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing!

Now ev'rybody...

Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
That's a funny little bit of melody
It's so soothing and appealing to me
It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing!

Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing
That's a funny little bit of melody
It's so soothing and appealing to me
It goes Ja Da, Ja Da, Ja Da Ja Da, Jing Jing Jing!
