lyrics

O,
1492 Columbus heard a crazy tune,
it went wop-boppa-looboo, uh, whop bam-boom
...somethin about blue suede shoes, so he headed west
for the eastern sea
with the Nina,
the Pinta, and a tambourine!
Tryin to remember this crazy tune...
(first hear-d it in a dream...)
(it went)
O! Fidodeeo dough!

He came upon a patch of land, callin himself an American,
it was the perfect spot for a Democracy;
pot was cheap and labor was free!
O! Fidodeeo Dough!
With slavery and peyote we had thirteen crazy colonies,
until one day when, SUDDENLY!

The Indians busted in on us and took all of our tea, threw it into the sea, I know, we was all like, 'O.M.G'!

It was the beginning of World War Three
following a simple motto:
O! Fidodeeo dough!

With Washington at Valley Forge,
t'was freezin cold, but up spoke George, he said,
'Fo-doh-dee-oh' an 'Beetle um bumm,'
'I wanna hold your hand' 'All you need is love'
Crazy words,
crazy tune,
he was fighting the American Revolution what are you doing, Dad?

And then Saddam Hussein boarded a plane,
ruining everybody’s groovy Tuesday,
so we sent some tanks in to investigate,
opening up those most porous of gates.

There's oil everywhere.
