Skip A Dee Doo

Written by Danny Kirwan.

Betty sang the blue song
For he'd been away for too long
She was dreaming of her lost companion-ee
For she came down from Georgia
And married a GI soldier
And she turned out to be his runaway toy

Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, and I don't know why
Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, but I don't know why

Betty sang the blue song
For he'd been away for too long
She was dreaming of her lost companion-ee
For she came down from Georgia
And married a GI soldier
And she turned out to be his runaway toy

Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, and I don't know why
Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, but I don't know why

Maybe when you twinkle in your eyes
Are the calling of your toes(?)
Betty who sang the blue song

Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, and I don't know why
Skip a dee doo, skip a dee day
You're lookin' just fine in the same old way
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, but I don't know why
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, but I don't know why
I want your lovin'
Yes I do, but I don't know why
