Doo Wah Diddy

Words & Music:

Jeff Barry & Ellie Greenwich


D                    G                D

There she was just a-walking down the street.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

Snapping her fingers and shuffling her feet.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

D        A                 D          A

She looked good (looked good!), she looked fine (looked fine!)

    D    A       D       A         D  A    D      A

She looked good, she looked fine and I nearly lost my mind.


Before I knew it she was walking next to me.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

Holdin' my hand just as natural as can be.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

We walked on (walked on!) to my door (my door!)

We walked on to my door then we kissed a little more.



D            Bm

Wo-o-o-oh, I knew we was falling in love.

G                    A7

Yes, I did, and so I told her all the things I'd been dreaming of.


Now we're together nearly every single day.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

We're so happy and that how we're gonna stay.

Singing, "Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo."

Well I'm hers (I'm hers!), she's mine (she's mine!)

I'm hers, she's mine, wedding bells are gonna chime.





Wo-o-o-o-o-o, oh yeah!

D                   G         D

Doo wah diddy diddy dum diddy doo. [3x]
