The Lyrics

It's interesting with the lyrics: "There she was just a walkin' down the street...Snappin' her fingers and a shufflin her feet..." I've heard about it from some others and it does conjure up a really odd image. Would you fall in love with her or would you be freaked out? She must be mentally ill or something.
There she was just a walkin' down the street singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
Snappin' her fingers and a shufflin her feet singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

She looked bad (looked bad) and not fine (not fine)
She looked bad, and not fine, clearly must have lost her mind.

Before I knew it she was walkin' next to me singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
Holdin' my hand, it was creepy as could be singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

She followed me (followed me) To my door (my door)
She followed me to my door, she held on a little more.

Oh, I knew we weren't fallin' in love.
I did so I told her one of the things I'd been dreamin' of.

Now it's so crappy nearly every single day singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
I was so happy and that's how it won't stay
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

Well I'm hers (I'm hers) she ain't mine (ain't mine)
Well I'm hers, she ain't mine, wedding bells still gonna chime.

Oh, I knew we weren't fallin' in love.
I did so I told her one of the things I'd been dreamin' of.

Now it's so crappy nearly every single day singin'
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do
I was so happy and that's how it won't stay
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

Well I'm hers (I'm hers) she ain't mine (ain't mine)
Well I'm hers, she ain't mine, wedding bells still gonna chime.
Oh...Oh yeah
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do (We're singin)
Do wah diddy diddy dum diddy do

I normally don't like parodies that are too similar to the original but you were absolutely right about the whole image thing. I loved your version!! It just goes to show that sometimes a few minor changes in a classic song goes a helluva long way! 555!
