  • Song Lyrics:
    I told the witch doctor
    I was in love with you
    I told the witch doctor
    I was in love with you
    And then the witch doctor
    He told me what to do

    He said that

    Ooo eee,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla, bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang...
    Ooo eee ,ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla ,bing bang
    Ooo eee ooo ah ah ting tang
    Walla walla bing bang

    I told the witch doctor
    You didn't love me true
    I told the witch doctor
    You didn't love me nice
    And then the witch doctor
    He game me this advice

    He said that

    refrain repeat x4

    You've been keeping love from me
    Just like you were a miser
    And I'll admit I wasn't very smart
    So I went out and found myself
    A guy that's so much wiser
    And he taught me the way to win your heart.

    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to say
    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to do
    I know that you'll be mine
    When I say this to you

    refrain

    You've been keeping love from me
    Just like you were a miser
    And I'll admit I wasn't very smart
    So I went out and found myself
    A guy that's so much wiser
    And he taught me the way to win your heart.

    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to say
    My friend the witch doctor
    He taught me what to do
    I know that you'll be mine
    When I say this to you, oh baby

    refrain
