(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)

i got a baby that’s all so pretty
(pretty-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)
i found her right here in the windy city
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)

somebody kissed my baby last night
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)
well, my pretty baby cried
she know it wadn’t right
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didely)

(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(harmonica)

well, my baby started to cry in vain
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)
say, ‘bo diddle, you know you a nat’ral born man’
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)

i say, ‘i love you baby with all my heart’
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)
please, don’t never say we’ll part
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)

(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)

bo diddley, bo diddley, here’s i say
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didley)
i wanna know if you do love me
(diddly-diddy-dum, dum-dum, did-didely)

(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley, daddy)
fades-
(diddley, diddley, diddley, diddley).
