Dearest Princess Amelia I thought that you might like a blog post about nonsense song lyrics. Songs that might have been written by your Daddy. This will be the first nonsense lyric post of many I hope. I also hope that you like the song, it is called “Rama Lama Ding Dong” and it’s by Rocky Sharpe and the Replays in 1979. The song was originally by an American group called the Edsels and has been covered by many groups, including one that has a rather nonsense name; Showaddywaddy. I hope you and your Mummy and daddy enjoy a little Rama Lama Singalong now 🙂 I have added some funny versions of the song too.

Just to help you Mummmy and daddy and all the people in Godderwil to sing along here are the words.

RAMA LAMA DING DONG

Oh oh oh oh
I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
She’s everything to me
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
I’ll never set her free
For she’s mine, all mine
Oh oh oh oh
I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong,
She’s fine to me,
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
You don’t believe that she’s mine, all mine
I love her,
Love her, love her so.
That I’ll never, never let her go.
You may be certain she’s mine, all mine,
She’s mine all of the time.
Oh I got a girl named Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
She’s everything to me
Rama Lama, Rama Lama Ding Dong
I’ll never set her free
For she’s mine, all mine

Dearest Princess Amelia in your journey through the wonderful world of popular music you will come across the beast known as the One Hit Wonder. Some of these are wonderful and others are awful. The original of the song that I am bringing you in this post is excellent, although one of its cover versions is dreadful. but as that cover version raised money for charity, so I think that we can forgive that! What do you think?

The song is “Spirit In The Sky” and it has been to the top of the UK charts three times; Norman Greenbaum (1970), Doctor and the Medics (1986) and Gareth Gates and the Kumars (2003). If you wish to know more about any of those artists just ask Uncle Bill. But if you ask about Gareth Gates I will be a little disappointed. Norman Greenbaum wrote the song and because he earned so much money from it over the years he has never had to work. I wish that I could write a song like that! I hope that you enjoy singing and dancing to “Spirit In The Sky”.
