TITLE: Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da
Lyrics and Chords


Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace
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

/ G - D - / D7 - G -  / G - C - / G D G - /

{Refrain}
Ob la di, ob la da, life goes on, bra
La la how their life goes on
Ob la di, ob la da, life goes on, bra
La la how their life goes on

/ G - D Em / G D G - / :

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweler's store
Buys a 20 carat golden ring
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing

{Refrain}

{Bridge}
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

/ C - - - G Gsus2 G G7 / C - - - / G - D - / 

Happy ever after in the marketplace
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

{Refrain}

{Bridge}

Happy ever after in the marketplace
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

{Refrain}

And if you want some fun - take ob la di bla da
