The Do-Wacka-Do Story

"Do-Wacka-Do" is a song, released in 1965, by American country music artist Roger Miller. The expression "do-wacka-do" is a funny way of saying "do-like-I-do".


The song expresses envy in a humorous way. The lyrics are written like a letter to a friend or possibly a former friend ("I hear tell you're doing well, good things have come to you...") with whom the singer would like to trade places ("I wish I had your good luck charm, and you hadda do-wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do").

Do-Wacka-Do Lyrics


I hear tell you’re doin’ well,

Good thing have come to you.

I wish I had your happiness

And you had a do-wacka-do,

Wacka do, wacka-do, wacka-do.


They tell me you’re runnin’ free,

Your days are never blue.

I wish I had your good-luck charm

And you had a do-wacka-do, Wacka 

do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do.


Yeah, I see you’re goin’ down the street in your big Cadillac,

You got girls in the front, you got girls in the back,

Yeah, way in back, you got money in a sack,

Both hands on the wheel and your shoulders rared back

root-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-wah,


I hear tell you’re doin’ well,

Good things have come to you.

I wish I had your happiness

And you had a do-wacka-o,

Wacka do, wacka-do, wacka-do.


(Nonsense syllable interlude)

Yeah, I see you’re goin’ down the street in your big Cadillac,

You got girls in the front, you got girls in the back,

Yeah, way in back, you got money in a sack,

Both hands on the wheel and your shoulders rared back

root-doot-doot-doot-doot, do-wah,


I hear tell you’re doin’ well,

Good things have come to you.

I wish I had your good-luck charm

And you had a do-wacka-do,

Wacka do, wacka-do, wacka-do.


-Roger Miller
