Oom-Pah-Pah is a song in the 1968 musical film Oliver!

Background Edit

In the movie, Nancy (Shani Wallis) sings the song in the Three Cripples Tavern in an attempt to start up a lively drinking song in order to smuggle Oliver Twist (Mark Lester) away from Bill Sikes (Oliver Reed) and Fagin (Ron Moody).

Lyrics Edit

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

They all suppose what they want to suppose

When they hear oom-pah-pah

There's a little ditty they're singing in the city

Especially when they've been on the gin or the beer

If you got the patience, you're own imaginations

Will tell you exactly what you want to hear

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

They all suppose what they want to suppose

When they hear oom-pah-pah

Mr. Percy Snotgrass put off and had the odd glass

But never when he thought anybody could see

Secretly he'd buy it and drink it on the quiet

And dream he was an Earl with a girl on each knee

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

What is the cause of his red shiny nose?

Could it be oom-pah-pah?

What is the cause of his red shiny nose?

Could it be oom-pah-pah?

Pretty little Sally goes walking down the alley

Displays her pretty ankles for all of the men

They can see her garters but not for free ingratas

An inch or two and then she knows when to say when

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

Whether it's bigger or whether it shows

It's the same oom-pah-pah

She was full of country but now she's up a gum tree

She let a fella beat her and lead her along

What's the good of crying she made her bed to lie in

She's glad to bring the coin in and join in the song

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

She ain't no longer the same blushing rose

Ever since oom-pah-pah

Oom-pah-pah (Oom-pah-pah) x4

Oom-pah-pah x8

There's a little ditty they're singing in the city (Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes)

Especially when they've been on the gin or the beer (Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows)

If you got the patience your own imaginations (They all suppose what they want to suppose)

Will tell you exactly what you want to hear (When they hear oom-pah-pah)

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah that's how it goes

Oom-pah-pah, oom-pah-pah everyone knows

They all suppose what they want to suppose

When they hear oom-pah-pah
