Doo Wacka Doo

This song is by Celtic Thunder and appears on the album It's Entertainment! (2010).

I've been playing some old record that I found in grandpa's trunk
Beside a wind up gramophone beneath a pile of junk
And in that dusty attic, I joined a music show
Listening to the melodies of eighty years ago

Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo the band would play
Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo they danced the night away
How I longed for a ll the magic of the days of cabaret
Bring back those good old melodies of yesterday

In my youth I studied music and they taught me how to sing
Bella signora
They took me to the opera and I loved that sort of thing
But then I'd listen to the stories my grandpa used to tell
About the Roaring Twenties and the songs he knew so well

Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo the band would play
Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo they danced the night away
How I longed for a ll the magic of the days of cabaret
Bring back those good old melodies of yesterday
Bring back those good old melodies of yesterday

Then he'd talk about the flappers and the way they used to dance
About the bootleg liquors and the ballrooms of romance.
Then later in the movies, there was dancing everywhere
My grandpa used to dream that he could move like Fred Astair

Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo the band would play
Doo wacka doo wacka doo wacka doo they danced the night away
How I longed for a ll the magic of the days of cabaret
Bring back those good old melodies of yesterday
Bring back those good old melodies of yesterday
