Here's the weekend special. A couple people have asked me what Yoo Doo Right is. Most know the song and the group who performs it, Can. When I was setting up my blog a few months back it was playing in the background, so it really has little meaning to me beyond convenience (though it is an unbelievable song).

As a public service I'm going to print every word from it here today. Actually, I lifted this from a Can fan appreciation site, but they have about as much right to it as I do so they probably won't complain. Here goes.

YOO DOO RIGHT
Sung by Malcolm Mooney
[based on a letter written by Malcolm's girlfriend]

Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right.

I’m in love with my girl, she is away.
Man, got to move on, man you got to move on, man.
I need your help, I need your love today.
Once I was blind, but now I see
Now that you’re in love with me
You made a believer out of me, babe,
You made a believer out of me.
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right.
Black eyes was wrong, I say “OK”.
I’m in love with my girl, she is away.
Man, got to move on, man you got to move on, man.
I need your help, I need your love today.
Once I was blind, now I can see
Now that you’re in love with me
You made a believer out of me, babe,
You made a believer out of me, she said
“Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, yoo doo, yoo doo it right.
I need you, I need you not, doo right, yoo doo right.”
One day I was wrong, I say “I’m OK”.
Man, got to move on, man you got to move on, man.
I’m in love with my girl, she is away to stay.
A drum beat 21 hours a day,
Once I was blind, now I can see,
Once I was blind, but now I can see,
Now that you’re in love with me
You made a believer out of me, babe,
You made a believer out of me.
She said “doo, doo doo right”, she said “doo, doo doo right”,
She said “doo, doo doo right”, she said “doo, yoo doo right”,
She said “you, it’s alright”, she said “you, it’s alright”,
She said “yoo, yoo doo right”, she said “yoo, yoo doo right”.

Black eyes, that’s wrong, I say “OK”,
I’m in love with my girl, she is away,
I need your help, I need your love today,
Eyes in the letter right away.
Once I was blind, but now I see
Now that you’re in love with me
You made a believer out of me, babe,
You made a believer out of me, babe,
Baby, baby, baby, it’s OK, she said
“Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right.”

Black eyes was wrong, I say “I’m OK”,
I’m in love with my girl, she is away,
I need your help, I need your love strong.
A drum beat 21 hours a day,
I know you’re, you’re, you’re here to stay,
You made a believer out of me, babe,
You made a believer out of me, she said
“Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right.”

Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, yoo doo right, doo right, yoo doo right,
Doo right, it’s alright, doo right, it’s alright,
Doo right, it’s alright, doo right, it’s alright,
Doo right, it’s alright, doo right, it’s alright,
