LA DE DA DE DUM

On the 17th of March in La de da de da
A son was born to Mrs La De Dum
He had two arms, two legs, a mouth and nose and ears
And the usual La de da de da de dum.

He was duly christened La de da de da
And they gave his second name as La de dum
And through his life, and he lived for 90 years
He was known as La de da de da de dum.

Then as he grew up his la de da de dum
Grew quicker than his other la de dum
And when he was fifteen, everyone remarked
On his great big La de da de da de dum.

Then he met a girl in La de da de da
She was pretty but a little la de dum
But the reason that he loved her most of all
Was that she didn't mind his La de da de da de dum.

Her mother was awfully la de da de da
Her father was completely la de dum
And they all sat down that night to salmon mayonnaise
And a bowl of La de da de da de dum

And all went well till La de da de da
Got up to take a bite of la de dum
He tripped and fell into the salmon mayonnaise
And it fell upon his la de da de dum.

Her mother cried loudly la de da de da
Her father kinda mumbled la de dum
And her mother said, "Dear you must try to find a boy
With a smaller la de da de da de dum"

They were married in the spring of la de da de da
And they honeymooned in sunny la de dum
But they found they couldn't get in the double bed
For his great big la de da de da de dum

So newly married la de da de da
Decided on a plan for la de dum
So they slept together and they used another bed
Just to rest his la de da de da de dum

He died in the winter of la de da de da
A victim of the dreaded la de dum... la de dum
But the undertaker couldn't shut the lid
For the great big la de da de da de dum.

So the undertaker of la de da de da
Decided on a plan for la de dum
So he built another coffin roughly 3 x 2 x 1
Just to take his la de da de da de dum.

Now you can read upon his tombstone la de da de da
The son of la de da de dum
Here lies his body and the in the next grave up but one
Lies great big la de da de da de dum.
