Music by Kenneth Holmström

Lyrics by Jonas Lundberg

 

On your mark

get born, get ready

Young man Ho-hum

we´ll see you when you´re done

 

You´re born to run

so the boss is saying

but Ho-hum´s trusting

in the amazing grace

 

So he says so long

to being fast and strong

Dedumdedumdedong

He´s singing on the Dodo-birdie song

 

What´s the point

of these constant worries

when your tribute

is a nickel and a dime

 

So he says so long

to being fast and strong

Dedumdedumdedong

He´s singing on the Dodo-birdie song

 

And maybe there won´t be no credits

in the movie of his life

One or two sitting in the pew

saying sorry to his wife

And the memory left down here,

it may wither, it may die

But the Ho-hum epitaph

it is surely not a lie

 

You can hear from

a distant fading

Mr Ho-hum,

humming on his tune

 

So he says so long

to being fast and strong

Dedumdedumdedong

He´s singing on the Dodo-birdie song

 

And so he says so long

to being fast and strong

Dodedumdedumdedong

He´s singing on the Dodo-birdie song

The Dodo-birdie song

Dedumdedumdedong….
