In the middle of the ocean storm clouds risin'
A young Christopher Columbus was searchin' the horizon 
The crew say hey Chris what we gonna do
All that he could say was baba baba babalou babalou babalou 

 Babalou babalou
No matter what you do yaou got to babalou 

God's chosen people were marchin' round the wall
They played so loud the wall began to fall
 Above all the screamin' a voice came cuttin' through  Joshua was singin' baba baba babalou babalou babalou

In 1957 I was seven years old
 Glued to the TV set wouldn't do a thing that I was told
I loved Lucy Fred and Ethel too
And Ricky when he sang baba baba babalou babalou babalou 

 Babalou babalou...
It's the American way to have a big election 
Go right out and vote make a presidential selection
All those politicians they ain't got a clue
They wouldn't know their butt from a hole in the ground 
Or a good babalou babalou babalou 

 Babalou babalou...
 Babalou babalou...
 Whatever else you do yeah you got to babalou
