Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly "girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweller's stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring (Golden ring?)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (Sing)

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on, yeah (No)

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand (Arm! Leg!)
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yes, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Yeah, happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand (Foot!)
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da

(Thank you, uh, ha ha ha!)

On the mellow mix?!? 
It is as if Bill made a list of mellowness of all songs in the world and accidentally picked the No.1 from the opposite end!  
ALWAYS loved the Beatles. ALWAYS detested this song. 
I'm a huge Beatles fan and this was never one of my favs, but it fit the album & the times.
Boppy and a light-hearted jingle! Ahh yes the sixties were more chillaxed than current times - that's for sure... nice nonsense
Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da on the mellow playlist really? Must be the most un-mellow tune ever made!

Odd....I'm trying to rate my favorite beatles songs and this is one of them...it's not on the playlist, although 33 others like me rated it.  Am I the only one giving a 9?  I know Laz rated a 10 (cuz he didn't rate it a 1, his only two options) oh well.


This song is soooo good for the ears!!!!
