Verse:
Bil - ly Mc - Coy was a boy who could play, you bet,
Oh, How they swayed when he played on his old cor - net,
He's got a smile and a cute lit - tle style that's all his own.
He'd "Mute" his old cor - net and then he'd make it moan.
 
He took a trip on a ship to a for - eign land,
He got a job with a mob in a Zu - zu Band.
Bill got a hunch and he said to the bunch "Here's some - thing new,"
Just hold your hands like this, and sing Doo Wack - a Doo.
 
Chorus:
Doo Wack - a Doo, wack - a doo, wack - a doo,  Doo Wack - a Doo, wack - a doo, wack - a doo.
Noth - ing to it but it's sweet,  That tune goes right to your feet.
He made a hit when he played for the girls,  They got their hair bobbed and gave him the curls.
Oh! how he blew,  That Doo Wack - a Doo Wack - a Doo.
 
Doo Wack - a Doo, wack - a doo, wack - a doo,  Doo Wack - a Doo, wack - a doo, wack - a doo.
That tune went right to their feet,  Made them shake their Shred - ded Wheat.
He took is meals with the chief of the troup,  They got the meat and the rest got the soup.
Oh! how he blew,  That Doo Wack - a Doo Wack - a Doo.
