Expanding on a previous peeve

Sometimes I get that song Mambo Number Five stuck in my head. But I don’t really know the words so I steal a line from Boys in the Hood and sing:
One, two, three, four, five
Everybody’s in the park throwing up gang signs.
Then it goes through my head over and over because that’s all I know.

Here CL, let me help!
One, two, three, four, five,
Everybody in the car, so come on, let's ride
To the liquor store around the corner
The boys say they want some gin and juice, but I really don't want a
Beer buzz like I had last week
I must stay deep, because talk is cheap
I like Angela, Pamela, Sandra, and Rita
And as I continue, you know they're gettin' sweeter
So what can I do, I really beg you my Lord
To me, flirting, it's just like sport,
Anything fly it's all good, let me dump it
Please send in the trumpet

A little bit of Monica in my life
A little bit of Erica by my side
A little bit of Rita's what I need
A little bit of Tina's what I see
A little bit of Sandra in the sun
A little bit of Mary all night long
A little bit of Jessica, here I am
A little bit of you makes me your man

Jump up and down, and move it all around
Shake your head to the sound, put your hands on the ground
Take one step left, and one step right
One to the front, and one to the side
Clap your hands once, clap your hands twice
And if it looks like this then you're doin' it right

I do all I do to fall in love with a girl like you
You can't run, and you can't hide
You and me gonna touch the sky
I, personally, HATE that song! Bob The Builder's version is so much better:
Are you ready, Bob
What about you, Lofty
I'm a bit scared
Ok team, let's go

1, 2, 3, 4, 5 everybody's outside
So come on let's ride
To the builder's yard around the corner
The gang's all here and it's time for us to do
What we wanna
There's a house with a roof that leaks
It's an urgent job and it could take us weeks
There's Dizzy, Lofty and Roley too
And Wendy always knows just what to do
And there's no job too big or small
With Scoop and Muck we can do it all
Metal, brick or wood it's all good
And we can always send in the tractor

A little bit of timber and a saw
A little bit of fixing that's for sure
A little bit of digging up the roads
A little bit of moving heavy loads
A little bit of tiling on the roof
A little bit of making waterproof
A little bit of concrete mixed with sand
A little bit of Bob, the builder man

Jump up and down and move it all around
Mix it up to the sound
Dig a hole in the ground
Take one step left and one step right
One to the front and one to the side
Clap your hands once
And clap your hands twice
And if it looks like this
Then you're doin' it right

Mambo number six, and seven, eight
I say, is this Mambo number five
Six and seven, eight
No, it's Mambo number five, silly
Tractor, tractor
That's a lovely job, Bob

There's Roley, Lofty, Scoop, Muck and Dizzy
So much work to keep us all busy
And we can fix it, yes we can
With the team, and Bob
The builder man

A little bit of Bob, Bob, Bob
The builder man

Cindylou & Rachel... have I ever told you two how much I don't like you? ;) That song. THAT SONG! It might be more infectious than Who let the dogs out!

I once saw a busker singing Who Let the Dogs Out. He had his dog with him. He had the dog trained to fill in all the WOOF parts.
