​Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

This song is by Mercy and appears on the album Love Can Make You Happy (1969).

This song is a cover of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" by ​The Beatles.
Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly, "girl, I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

"Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on
Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on"

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweler stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

"Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on
Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on"

In a couple of years they have built a home
Sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the marketplace
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

"Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on
Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on"

In a couple of years they have built a home
Sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the marketplace
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

"Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on
Ob-la-di
Ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La, la, how the life goes on"

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di-bla-da
