“THE DIPSY DOODLE”  Words & Music by Larry Clinton. Copyright 1937.  key Bb”

“ The Dipsy Doodle’s a thing to beware, - The Dipsy Doodle will get in your hair

and if it gets you it couldn’t be worse-the things you say will come out in reverse, like,

You love I and me love you-that’s the way the Dipsy Doodle works !

The Dipsy Doodle is easy to find, it’s almost always in the back of your mind

You never know it until it’s too late, and then you’re in such a terrible state, like the moon jumped over the cow hey diddle

That’s the way the Dipsy Doodle works !

When you think that you’re crazy – you’re the victim of the Dipsy Doodle

But it’s not your mind that’s hazy- it’s your tongue that’s at fault not your noodle

You’d better listen and try to be good and try to do all the things that you should

The Dipsy Doodle will get you some day –You’ll think you’re crazy, the things that you’ll say like

Rhythm got I and hot am I – That’s the way the Dipsy Doodle works !
