  • Song Lyrics:
    That's right, That's right, I'm sad and blue
    'Cause I can't do the Boogaloo
    I'm lost, I'm lost, can't do my thing
    That's why I sing, Gimme, Gimme Dat Ding Ah..

    Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Dat Ding (Ah, you ain't doin' that late at night)

    Ah, what good's a metronome without a boatbell ringing?
    How fast can anybody ever tell he swings?
    How can you tell the rhythm written on a bar?
    How can you ever hope to know just where you are?
    Gimme Dat, (Gimme Dat) Ah Gimme Dat (Gimme Dat),
    Ah Gimme Dat, (Gimme Dat) Gimme Dat,
    Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,

    Oh, Gimme Dat, Gimme Dat, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme Dat
    Gimme Dat Ding, Gimme Dat, Gimme, Gimme Dat,
    Gimme Dat Ding, Gimme Dat, Gimme, Gimme Dat,
    Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Dat Ding

    Ah, what good's a metronome without a boatbell ringing?
    How fast can anybody ever tell he swings?
    How can you tell the rhythm written on the bar?
    How can you ever hope to know just where you are?
    Gimme Dat, Ah Gimme Dat,
    Ah Gimme Dat, Gimme Dat, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme,

    Gimme Dat, Gimme Dat, Gimme, Gimme, Gimme Dat

    >Tony Burrows did other voices

    Did that guy have enough chart action in the summer of 1970?

    White Planes
    Edison Lighthouse
    Wadsworth Mansion
    Brotherhood Of Man

    I think he may have had connections to The Archies and Partridge Family too.

    1970 was a good year for him.
