"(And You Had a) Do-Wacka-Do" is a song, released in 1965, by American country music artist Roger Miller. The expression "do-wacka-do" is a funny way of saying "do-like-I-do".

The song expresses envy in a humorous way. The lyrics are written like a letter to a friend or possibly a former friend ("I hear tell you're doing well, good things have come to you...") with whom the singer would like to trade places ("I wish I had your good luck charm, and you hadda do-wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do").


The song is featured in "Say Cheese", the fourth episode of the first season of the TV sitcom Raising Hope.

The song is used in a fight scene in the 2010 film Mother's Day.

The song is used in the 2014 film Trailer Park Boys: Don't Legalize It.
