Lyrics

Hummadinger

Written By: Gwenevered

Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding (ch, ch, ch, ch)
You don’t know what I want you don’t know what I need (ch, ch, ch, ch)
Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding (ch, ch, ch, ch)
I hope you know what you want because it won’t be me (ch, ch, ch, ch)

Listen up close you better hear what I say (ch, ch, ch, ch)
Come on tell the truth now, who ya gonna portray? (ch, ch, ch, ch)
A lie is a lie and a fib is a fib (ch, ch, ch, ch)
But a stab in the back is hard to forgive (ch, ch, ch, ch)

Chorus: Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah,
Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah

Will you be yourself or will you be like them? (ch, ch, ch, ch)
Or ya just a coward with thick skin? (ch, ch, ch, ch)
Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding.
A Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding.

Chorus: Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah,
Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah

I’m tired of dealing with small town minds (ch, ch, ch, ch)
And their judgemental ways about life. (ch, ch, ch, ch)
Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding (ch, ch, ch, ch)
A Hummadinger Hummadinger Humma ding ding (ch, ch, ch, ch)

Chorus: Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah,
Humm a dinger, yeah yeah, Humm a dinger, yeah yeah
