FCS Daily Music Video – ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da’ (Beatles) MercyMe

My drinking buddy Skip’s a great fan of MercyMe. So much so I’ve put him in charge of this department

Enjoy

How does the guy in front keep a straight face?

What a happy bunch…Wish I was there….I could wear my Skip T-shirt and play the didgeridoo…. Skip’s rolling his eyes…..

Lyrics below

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

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweler’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 their life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their 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 their life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their 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 their life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on

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

(Thank you, uh, ha ha ha!)

  1. That is a bunch o’ fun!! I am a fan of MercyMe, too; and I somehow missed this ’til now. If you have not seen the film “I Can Only Imagine,” you should check it out. It is the story of that lead singer and how he came to be a musician and songwriter.

      1. Well, let’s see… there’s OK Go and Walk Off the Earth… and, of course, “Weird Al” Yankovic.

        And, btw, MercyMe is not silly all of the time.
