@JTYou really take the fun out of this.

I'm sorry you think having an appreciation of music history isn't fun. :( I'd have thought that, given you asked the question either knowing the answer (and thereby wanting to spur on some google searching for it and exposing some people to music they might not have heard before) or not knowing the answer (and honestly desiring to know what it was) you'd be interested in the answer regardless.Nonsense lyrics were common in doo-wop, and Barry Mann wrote "Who Put the Bomp?" as a sort of self-referential/genre-deprecating piece that eventually became one of the more famous pieces of the genre. Imagine a world where, 50 years from now, people look at The Lonely Island's "I'm on a Boat" as an exemplar of hip-hop at the turn of the 21st century and you sort of get the idea.

Nah, I was just thinking it would've been more fun to "sing" the song line by line.And I asked the question in order to be silly. Not to push people to search anything, or have some deeper appreciation for things. Just to chuckle. It's kinda my thing.

In the end, whoever he was, he made my baby fall in love with me.
