Here come my baby
She pretty good
She pretty useful
Just like she should


She the one I love
I put her on the stove
She simmer and simmer all day long
I cut meat and I sing my song

It go wey wey hep a hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep a hole ding dong
Wey Wey Hep a hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep a hole ding dong

Buy my baby a piece of cheese
Dizzy dizzy wey uh hey Heathrow cheese
She'll eat anything that isn't diseased
Dizzy dizzy wey uh hey Heathrow cheese
Here she come sliding down the roof
Hey wey slide way day woof woof!
She not heavy man, and that's the proof

Wey wey hep uh hole, ding dong
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep uh hole, ding dong

I got a dog with the legs of black
He got an aerial strapped to his back
He work by remote control
I sent him down to the water hole

I sent him to get my baby back
Dog come home and eat some coal
He say, "Master, she all full of holes"
I say, "More than usual?" Dog say, "Yeah."
I say, "Never you mind, just bring her here.
D'you hear me hear me?  Bring her here
D'you hear me hear me?  Bring her here
D'you hear me hear me?  Bring her here."

There go my dog with the legs of black
Gonna get my baby back

Goin' wey wey hep uh hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong

Mmm, this one
Slow coagulating of luscious jam

Here she come rollin' up the creek
Jibber jabber jibber jabber bathroom squeak
I fill her up but she start to leak
Jibber jabber jibber jabber bathroom squeak
Police come with a laser gun
Fibrulating blubber in the noonday sun
Burn my dog and away they run
Fibrulating blubber in the noonday sun

Took my baby off for analysis
They conclude that she got paralysis
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong yeah yeah
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong
Wey wey hep uh hole ding dong yeah yeah
