Lyrics I JUST HEARD A MELODY
THAT IS ALWAYS HAUNTING ME;
FUNNY LITTLE STRAINS
RUNNING THROUGH MY BRAINS,
IT'S AS SWEET AS CAN BE!
IT HAS SUCH A PLEASING WAY,
THOUGH IT'S WITH ME
NIGHT AND DAY!
WHEN I HEAR SOMEONE PLAYING,
I WALK RIGHT UP AND SAY:

PLEASE PLAY IT FOR ME,
THAT SWEET MELODY
CALLED DOODLE-DOO-DOO,
DOODLE-DOO-DOO..
I LIKE THE REST,
THE ONE I LIKE BEST
IS DOODLE-DOO-DOO,
DOODLE-DOO-DOO.

SIMPLEST THING,
THERE'S NOTHING MUCH TO IT,
DON'T HAVE TO SING,
JUST DOODLE-DOO-DOO IT!
I LOVE IT SO,
WHEREVER I GO
I DOODLE-DOO-DOO-DOO-DOO!

I HEARD ALL THE MELODY,
FOUND THE BLUES,
A RHAPSODY.
THEY ALL COME AND GO,
BUT THERE'S ONE I KNOW
THAT'LL LINGER AND TEASE.
I FOUND ALL THE BLUES
A PEST,
RHAPSODIES FOR ME ARE DEATH!
SO IF YOU WANT TO PLEASE ME,
JUST TAKE THIS ONE REQUEST:

PLEASE PLAY IT FOR ME,
THAT SWEET MELODY
CALLED DOODLE-DOO-DOO,
DOODLE-DOO-DOO..
I LIKE THE REST,
THE ONE I LIKE BEST
IS DOODLE-DOO-DOO,
DOODLE-DOO-DOO.

Lyrics THREE LITTLE UNEXPECTED CHILDREN,
SIMULTANEOUSLY THE DOCTOR BROUGHT US
AND YOU CAN SEE
THAT WE'LL BE THREE
FOREVER AND AYE.
EE-I-O.
YOU WOULDN'T KNOW
HOW AGONIZING
BEING TRIPLE CAN BE.
EACH ONE
IS INDIVIDUALLY
THE VICTIM
OF THE CLINICAL DAY.
EE-I-O.
EV'RY SUMMER
WE GO AWAY
TO BADEN BADEN BADEN.
EV'RY WINTER
WE COME BACK HOME
TO WALLA WALLA.
WALLA.

WE DO EVERYTHING ALIKE
WE LOOK ALIKE,
WE DRESS ALIKE,
WE WALK ALIKE,
WE TALK ALIKE,
AND WHAT IS MORE
WE HATE EACH OTHER
VERY MUCH.
WE HATE OUR FOLKS,
WE'RE SICK OF JOKES
ON WHAT AN ART IT IS
TO TELL US APART.

IF ONE OF US GETS THE MEASLES,
ANOTHER ONE GETS THE MEASLES,
THEN ALL OF US GETS THE MEASLES
AND MUMPS
AND CROUP.
HOW I WISH I HAD A GUN,
A LITTLE GUN,
IT WOULD BE FUN
TO SHOOT THE OTHER TWO
AND BE ONLY ONLY ONE.

MISSUS WHIFFLEPOOFER
LOVES TO TALK
TO MISSUS HILDENDORFER
OF THE FATAL NATAL DAY
SHE HAD HER SILLY WILLIE.
MISSUS HASSENCOOPER
LOVES TO TALK
TO MISSUS GOLDENWASER
OF HER MAJOR OPERATION
WHEN SHE HAD HER TWINS.
BUT WHEN MOTHER COMES ALONG,
SHE SILENCES THE OTHERS
SHE ACCOMPLISHED SOMETHING
THAT IS VERY RARE IN MOTHERS.
PEOPLE WHO DISPARAGE MARRIAGE,
BURDENED WITH A BABY CARRIAGE,
CATER TO THE MATER
AND HER LARGE PERAMBULATOR.
MGM HAS GOT A LEO,
BUT MAMA HAS GOT A TRIO.
SHE IS PROUD,
BUT SAYS THREE IS A CROWD.

WE DO EVERYTHING ALIKE
WE LOOK ALIKE,
WE DRESS ALIKE,
WE WALK ALIKE,
WE TALK ALIKE,
AND WHAT IS MORE
WE HATE EACH OTHER
VERY MUCH.
WE HATE OUR FOLKS,
WE'RE SICK OF JOKES
ON WHAT AN ART IT IS
TO TELL US APART.

WE EAT THE SAME
KIND OF VITTELS,
WE DRINK THE SAME
KIND OF BOTTLES,
WE SIT IN THE SAME
KIND OF HIGH CHAIR
HIGH CHAIR,
HIGH CHAIR.
HOW I WISH I HAD A GUN,
A LITTLE GUN,
IT WOULD BE FUN
TO SHOOT THE OTHER TWO
AND BE ONLY ONE.
