Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

The Beatles

Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond say 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 jeweller's stores
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 (sin-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

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

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 o-bla-di, bla-da
