OB-LA-DI, OB-LA-DA

Desmond has a barrow in the market place

Molly is the singer in a band

Desmond says to Molly “Girl I like your face”

And Molly says just as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah

La, la, how the life goes on

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah

La, la, how the life goes on

Desmond take the trolly to the jewelry store

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, rah (la, la, la...)

La, la, how the life goes on

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah (la, la, la...)

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

While Desmond and Molly joke.

Happy ever after in the market place

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, rah

La, la, how the life goes on

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah

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

While Desmond and Molly joke

Happy ever after in the market place

Molly lets the children lend a hand

Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face

And in the evening she´s the singer in the band

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah

La, la, how the life goes on

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, rah

La, la, how the life goes on

You want some fun, say ob-la-di, bla-da!
