A Cappella Suite

(B, T) A-wah, a-wah

A-wah, a-wah

A-wah, a-wah

A-wah, a-wah (continue 6 more times)

 

(A, S, SS) She's a rich girl

She don't try to hide it

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

 

(Harmonies) He's a poor boy

Empty as a pocket

(All) Empty as a pocket with nothing to lose

Sing Ta na na

Ta na na na

She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wah, a-wah)

She got diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wah, a-wah)

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes (a-wah, a-wah)

Diamonds on the soles of her shoes

(B, T) Humm, doo-be, doo-be, doo-be, dum, doo-be dum x2, then x2

(A, S, SS) Dub-der-dub x8

 

(B, T) Humm (All) Sweet dreams are made of this

Who am I to disagree?

I travel the world and the seven seas

Everybody's looking for something

 

Some of them want to use you

Some of them want to get used by you

Some of them want to abuse you

Some of them want to be abused

 

Oohs

(A, S, SS) Do, do, do-wah-ah x4

 

(A, S, SS) Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it

(All) And that's what gets results.

 

(A, S, SS harmonies) Ain't what you do, it's the time that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the time that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the time that you do it

(All) And that's what gets results.

 

(A, S, SS) Ah, ah-ah

 

(B, T) You can try hard

Don't mean a thing

Take it easy

Then your jive will swing

 

(A, S, SS) Scat/ah

 

(A, S, SS harmonies) Ain't what you do, it's the way that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the time that you do it

Ain't what you do, it's the place that you do it

(All) And that's what gets results. Yeah!
