Connick, Jr., Harry - Oompa Loompa Lyrics




Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompety dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

Now what do you get when you guzzle down sweets
Eating as much as an elephant eats
What are you at, getting terribly fat
What do you think will come of that
I don't like the look of it

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you're not greedy, you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

Oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got another puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompeda dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

Who do you blame when your kid is a brat
Pampered and spoiled like a siamese cat
Blaming the kids is a lie and a shame
You know exactly who's to blame
The mother and the father

Oompa loompa doompety da
If you're not spoiled then you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

Now oompa loompa doompety doo
I've got final puzzle for you
Oompa loompa doompeda dee
If you are wise you'll listen to me

Now what do you get from a glut of TV
A pain in the neck and an IQ of three
Why don't you try simply reading a book
Or could you just not bear to look
You'll get no commercials

Oompa loompa doompety da
Do as I say you will go far
You will live in happiness too
Like the Oompa Loompa Doompety do

  1. Jack Lotspeich

    Oompa Loompa doompity doo,
    Baby Grinch is coming for you.

  2. Skyler Burke

    iimpa loomoa

  3. Oscar Kobalt

    My god those comments...
    As if you could watch a Picasso and say : "how can you do this, this face doesn't seem right ..."

  4. RubeeRoja

    In my mind's eye it made me think of a cat walking across a piano.

  5. Ethan Rozling

    Is he trying to be off rhythm? His phrasing is insanely off time.

    Oscar Kobalt

    That's called talent sir

    Mrs. U

    That's called jazz, and as Oscar Kobalt said: talent.

    Fred LePiere

    He's insanely ON rhythm - its called syncopation.

  6. Mike Watkins

    the official results of Mr Tump's latest medical...... LOL

  7. Jon Angioi

    He sings in one time plays his left hand in another and his right in another so he's essentially in 3 different times

    Brian Randall

    No, just syncopations. You can hear it reset every few measures.

  8. Edmund Carrington

    my god....I just listen to this and have no idea why.....

  9. roberts459

    That was awful....

  10. poshko41

    Violet! You're turning violet, Violet!

  11. Mr. Ford-Man

    Well that sucks...

  12. Jed Hutchins

    That's what they sing at BRI

  13. Biel2619

    Google: Harry Connick Jr Weston, CT. He's not a native of New Orleans. He's a liar and a fraud!

    roberts459

    +Biel2619 you're a special kind of stupid aren't you....

    Biel2619

    Robert, If you mean by "a special kind of stupid" my not being the sort of fellow who stays up until 2:26 on a Sunday morning listening to Harry Connick Jr sing "Oompa Loompa", not to mention my being able to finish most all of my sentences: Why Robert459? Many thanks for the kind compliment and best regards!

    Sherry Hannah

    roberts459 yes and his father Harry Sr. was the DA in New Orleans

    Sherry Hannah

    Biel2619 the liar and the fraud is the president elect Donald J Trump not Harry Connick Jr.

    Jim Lanza

    @Sherry Hannah GO TRUMP!!!

  14. Darcy B

    Poor "Oompa Loompa" song. What did he do to you? You used to be such a great song. Some things just shouldn't be messed with. I think Harry Connick should go back to his usual songs.

  15. Randall Scott

    Have either of you once thought that he was doing it on purpose? it's a common thing to do in jazz. 

  16. Josh Terpstra

    And he doesn't even stay in time with the music half the time, so he makes it up by singing really quickly to get back in time.

    Jon Angioi

    Josh Terpstra he's in 3 different times on purpose

    Oscar Kobalt

    My god how can you not understand the genius behind this ...

    Brian Randall

    Its a syncopated ostinato. Jesus...

  17. Josh Terpstra

    Why...? His voice doesn't suit the song, or he doesn't sing it well. Also, why would you put the Oompa Loompa song on an album...

  18. Michael Alicante

    Awww no violet?

  19. An Amorphous Cloud of Gasses

    Oh my god, my Vivaldi-based brain is dying from this...THIS!

  20. N Mac

    @DKLDrummer 4/4 :)

  21. Chris Fosnot

    @DKLDrummer

    It's in 4/4
    The piano has a Dotted quarter note hemiola going on in the very beginning
    So the hits are: 1+2 / +3+ / 4+1 / +2+ / 3+4 / +1+ / ect

    Aren't hemiola's fun? ;)

    Jon Angioi

    Chris Fosnot then his right hand and singing are both in different times from his left hand and each other

  22. Dakota Linville

    can anyone tell me what time signature this is in?

    Sherry Hannah

    Dakota Linville it's in 4/4

    Jon Angioi

    It's in 3 different ones, he sings in one plays 4/4 for his left hand and another one for his right hand

    Valkyrie Sound

    ​@Jon Angioi I don't think it's so much different times as that the piano is not playing on the first beat ;)
