( doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo,
Doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )

What'cha doin' hutton?
Doodlin' . . . can you doodle?
Can I doodle? ~ I can't get it outta my noodle!

How come?

'cause I love you a bushel an' a peck,
A bushel an' a peck and a hug around the neck ( ouch! )
Hug around the neck and a barrel an' a heap,
Barrel an' a heap an' I'm talkin' in my sleep!
About you! ( about me? ) yes, about you!
My heart is leapin', havin' trouble sleepin' !
'cause I love you a bushel an' a peck,
You bet your purdy neck I do!

( doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo,
Doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )

Do you like me perry? oh very, do you like me hutton?
Like a glutton! so, where's your como button?
Oh! I love you a bushel an' a peck ( how much? )
A bushel an' a peck though you make my heart a wreck!
Make my heart a wreck and you make my life a mess,
Make my life a mess, yes a mess of happiness!
About you! ( about me? ) yes, about you!
You're gonna grieve me, if an' you ever leave me!
'cause I love you a bushel an' a peck,
You bet your purdy neck I do!

( doodle oodle ooh doo, doodle oodle ooh doo,
Doodle oodle ooh doo, doo ! )

A bushel an' a peck and it beats be all to heck,
Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I wanna keep my arms about you!
About you, the cows an' chickens, let em go to the dickens

You bet your purdy neck I do!
