Bama Lama Bama Loo
Gotta girl named Lucinda
They call her the great pretender
Gotta girl named Lucinda
They call her the great pretender
And when she talks
She says a Bama Lama Loo

(Chorus:)
Well, Bama Lama Bama Loo
Bama Lama Bama Loo
Bama Lama Bama Loo
Bama Lama Bama Loo
Well, I dig her style
She's 'bout to drive me wild
With Bama Lama Bama Loo

Well, I asked my baby for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
Well, I asked my little girl for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
She said ....

(Repeat Chorus)

Well, I asked my little girl for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
I asked my little girl for a kiss
She shook her head around like this
She said ....

(Repeat Chorus)

Well, I dig her style
She's 'bout to drive me wild
With Bama Lama Bama Loo
