Story

Last fall I was walking around Northwest Portland with Sandy Brown. We were putting up posters for a big ceramics show. This ridiculous little refrain crept into my brain and would not leave me until I had three verses.

 

Lyrics

But Ya Gotta Ooka: Brook Adams

You could be a coconut a-floatin' on the sea.
You could be a Kookaburra sittin' in a tree.
You could be whatever you could ever wanna be.
But ya gotta ooka ooka ooka le-le.


ooka ooka ooka ooka, ooka ooka ooka ooka
ooka ooka ooka ooka le-le

ooka ooka ooka ooka, ooka ooka ooka ooka
ooka ooka ooka le-le bay-bee.

You could be a lion or a tiger in the zoo.
You could be a monkey or a pteradactyl too.
You could do whatever you could ever wanna do.
But ya gotta ooka ooka ooka le-le.

 

You could see a flyin' saucer way up in the sky.
You couls see an elvis or a bigfoot passing by.
You could try whatever you could ever wanna try.
But ya gotta ooka ooka ooka le-le.
