skip a dee doo lyrics – danny kirwan

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
