Do wah diddy diddy

Artist, Manfred Mann

There she was just a-walkin’ down the street
Singin’ Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
But if we sang this song out loud
They'd say what's wrong with you

Unless we see you laugh or cry
It’s hard for us to tell
Just by looking at you
That you’re not doing well

Perhaps you lost your job
Or maybe lost your pet
Your house just caught on fire
Of course you’d be upset

Perhaps you lost your money
Or maybe lost your wife
You could have been so sad
And tried to end your life

Perhaps you got good news
And now you’re cancer free
Or did they have to amputate
Your leg beneath the knee

Perhaps you’re really rich
And dress in shabby jeans
Or maybe you’re a hero
Who served with the marines

But if you're someone famous
You're always glad to share
How you’re really feeling
It's amazing that we care
