Lyrics

Big Beautiful Ball

Hey look ma mama I'm dancin',
And I might somersault right over the wall.
This isn't a girl/beau but a whole world I'm romancin',
And we're havin' a Big Beautiful Ball!
It's like I went and got high on a wee toddy,
Yes siree matey I feel eighty feet tall.
My heavens above ev'ryone loves ev'rybody
And we're havin' a Big Beautiful Ball!
Funny old world I just adore you,
Fondly I emplore you,
You troubadour, you, please,
When you get ready
I'd like to go steady
And gee, take it form me
It'll be groovy
'cause there's somebody up there diggin' us all.

Old chappie it ends happy
just like in a movie
and we're havin' us one fabulous,
fantabulous, beautiful ball.
