Verse:
Hoop dee doo, hoop-dee-doo,
I hear a polka and my troubles are through!
Hoop dee doo, hoop-dee-dee,
This kind of music is like heaven to me!
Hoop-dee-doo, hoop-dee-doo,
It's got me higher than a kite!
Hand me down my soup and fish, I am gonna get my wish,
Hoop-dee-doin' it tonight!
 
Chorus:
When there's a banjo strumin' rah-ta-dah-dah-dah,
I get a thrill, I always will!
When there's a concertina, stretched out a mile,
I always smile, 'cause that's my style!
When there's a fiddle in the middle and he plays the tune so sweet!
Plays the tune so sweet that I could die.
Lead me to the floor and hear me yell for more,
'Cause I'm a hoop-dee-doin' kind of guy!
(transition, no lyrics)

Hoop dee doo, hoop-dee-dee,
This kind of music is like heaven to me!
Hoop-dee-doo, hoop-dee-doo,
It's got me higher than a kite!
Hand me down my soup and fish, I am gonna get my wish,
 
Ending:
Hoop-dee-doin' it with all of our might!
Rain may fall and snow may come, nothin's gonna stop us from,
Hoop-dee-doin' it tonight!
