Celtic Thunder - Doo Whacka Do Lyrics

I've been playing some old records that I found in Grandpa's trunk,

Beside a wind-up gramophone, beneath a pile of junk.

And in that dusty attic, I enjoyed a music show,

Listening to the melodies of eighty years ago!



Doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo the band will play.

Doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo *they'd* dance the night away.

I long for all the magic, and the days of cabaret,

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.



In my youth I studied music, and they taught me how to sing,

Bella Signora-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-aâ.

They took me to the opera, and I loved that kind of thing.

Then I'd listen to the stories that my grandpa used to tell

About the *Roaring* Twenties and the songs he knew so well.



Oh, doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo the band will play.

Doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo they'd dance the night away.

I long for all the magic, and the days of cabaret,

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.



Then he talk about the flappers, and the way they used to dance,

About the bootleg liquor and the ballrooms of romance.

Then later in the movies, there was dancing everywhere,

My grandpa said he dreamed that he could dance like Fred Astraire!



(music, tap around a lot)



Doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo the band will play.

Doo wacka, doo wacka, doo wacka doo *they'd* dance the night away.

I long for all the magic, and the days of cabaret,

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.

Bring back the good old melodies of yesterday.
