Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

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's store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring [rin-ring]
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing [sing]
 
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da [la-la-la-la la-la-]
Life goes on, bra [la-la la-la-la-laaa]
La-la, how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da [la-la-la-la la-la-]
Life goes on, bra [la-la la-la-la-laaa]
La-la, how the life goes on
Yeah
 
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 [ha ha ha ha]
 
Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand [arm!] [leg!]
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band
 
Yes!
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La-la, how the life goes on
Hey!
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 [home: H-O-M-E]
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones [ha ha ha ha ha ha ha]
 
Hey!
Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand [foot!]
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band
 
Yeah!
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La-la, how the life goes on
Hey!
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La-la, how the life goes on [ha ha ha ha]
And if you want some fun [ha ha ha ha ha ha ha]
Take Ob-la-di-bla-da [ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha]
[ha ha ha ha]
Ahh…
Thank you [ha ha]
