Verse:
There's a spot I know, a place they call, Samoa by the sea,
Talking there is not the mode, They palaver in a code.
They command each other, Understand each other perfectly,
Love and Mamas there are free, You don't give 'em repartee.
Wooing a tropical maiden, Doesn't need topical talk.
You manouvre and if you approve her, You can win her love in a walk.
 
Chorus:
Zulu man is feelin' blue, Hear his heart beat a little tattoo,
Diga diga doo diga doo doo, Diga diga doo diga doo.
You love me and I love you, And when you love it is natural to,
Diga diga doo diga doo doo, Diga diga doo diga doo.
I'm so very diga diga doo by nature,
If you don't say diga diga to your mate you're, Gonna lose a Papa,
So let those funny people smile, How can there be a Virgin Isle,
With diga diga doo diga doo doo, Diga diga doo diga doo.
