The Lyrics

Just heard on the news that Sean Combs, alias Puff Daddy, P Diddy, Hey Diddle Diddle, Sean John now wants to be called by the name on his birth certificate. This just asked to be parodied.
Change my name, this one's catchin' too much heat, thinkin',
I'm P Diddy, Daddy Puff just won't do.
I've been a stinker, old name I'll delete, thinkin',
I'm P Diddy, Daddy Puff just won't do.
It looks hood (looks hood), It's gang sign (gang sign)
It looks hood, It's gang sign, I'm allowed to change my mind.

Now I'm feelin' this new name just ain't me, thinkin'
Now P Diddy with this name I am through.
A stupid name, it's just dumb as it can be, thinkin'
Now P Diddy with this name I am through.
That name's gone, (name's gone), it's so bore, (so bore)
That name's gone, it's so bore, should have thought of Sean before.

Whoa-oh, name changes I keep thinking of,
But I never thought my first name would fit me so well like a glove.

Everybody was soon a-makin' fun that way, singin',
Names like Diddy, Daddy dumb, he's a foo.
Changin' his name does it every other day, singin',
Names like Diddy, Daddy dumb, he's a foo.
Well, call yours (call yours), like mine (like mine)
Call yours like mine, just don't call him 'of sound mind'.

Whoa-oh-oh-oh, oh yeah
What P Diddy, Daddy done, what he do?
What P Diddy, Daddy done, is he through?
Names like Diddy, Daddy dumb, he's a foo.

This was great!!!!! BTW isnt the orignal by Manfred Mann? Or did two groups do it?
Guy - January 05, 2004 - Report this comment
I think 'The Exciters' preceded Manfred Mann on this one. But yes Manfred Mann did do this one in the mid 60s I think.

Good job.

I've always thought it was very pretentious for "musicians" to try to elevatete themselves to some kind of lofty heights by adopting names like "Prince, Queen, Doctor, or Dog?" And who wants to be called "Li'l"? Of course then there's Elvis Alouicius Costello or something like that.

The original song soooooo deserves a parody! And you did it well! Aussie -- love your new name.
Guy - January 06, 2004 - Report this comment
Yeah Aussie love the new name - or is it now ABSDDDPW?
Thanks Mari, I've done one other on this song that parodied the death of Ugandan former dictator Idi Amin.
And thanks, Jack, Pat, Rick, GHOOTU and Joelle!

Very original. Real original. I wish I'd redone "Do Wah Diddy Diddy" about P. Diddy. If only I had done it first. If only.

Did y'all see "L.A. Story"? One of the characters plays "Do Wah Diddy" on her tuba.
