"(And You Had a) Do-Wacka-Do" is a song by American country artist Roger Miller, released in 1965. 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 had a do-wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do, wacka-do").
