A song of that name was recorded by Ross Bagdasarian Sr, in 1958 and by Alvin & The Chipmunks two years later (according to good ole’ Wiki). The song is about the advice a witch doctor gives to a man in love. I find it wise and wacky, weird, winsome, warm and wicked, wild, wordy, absolutely wonderful and worth listening to!
What more can I say? It’s a winner! You would think the novelty would wear off after a while, but when it’s all said and done, what’s eating you will actually win you over and keep you wide awake. Why the dickens would this be so popular, you ask from the Peanut Gallery? Winging it waxes lyrical. It definitely shows the writer knew his way out of a paper bag! You might say it’s water under the bridge or water over the dam but I won’t let it wear off. I bet you that witch doctor could walk AND chew gum at the same time! So much for walking the line and much better than waking up on the wrong side of the bed.
I’d rather dance into the wee small hours of the night, because when push comes to shove and when the going gets tough, the tough get going and the witch doctor takes me out to go boogie-woogie!
Signing off and without further ado, wanna hear this wonder of wonders? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WFspt9fRvoo
