"Hooray! Hooray! It's a Holi-Holiday" is a 1979 single by Euro disco band Boney M. as an adaptation of nursery rhyme Polly Wolly Doodle. Despite breaking their row of 7 consecutive German #1 singles, peaking at #4, the single was a big hit all over Europe, peaking at #3 in the UK. The song and its B-side "Ribbons of Blue" were taken from the movie Disco Fever. Even though the single cover announced the arrival of the next Boney M. album Oceans of Fantasy, it would still be another six months before the album was released, and of the two songs, only "Ribbons of Blue" (penned by the group's drummer Keith Forsey) was included and just in a one- or two-minute edit, depending on the various pressings.
Unlike other Boney M. singles, there appears to be no different mixes. In Germany, this was the first single to picture a specially designed label with a starspangled Boney M. logo on a blue background. In the UK, the single was released in a picture sleeve – it was also pressed on a Picture disc and a 12" clear yellow vinyl.
The Cheeky Girls did a cover of this song, "(Hooray, Hooray) It's a Cheeky Holiday" as a follow-up to their successful debut single "Cheeky Song (Touch My Bum)". Their version gave them their second top 5 hit in the UK.
The Mexican group Banda Ráfaga covered the song in their album debut "Al ataque" (To attack) in 1994.
In 2005, German pop band "Hot Banditoz" covered the song in Spanish on their second album "Bodyshaker", with altered lyrics and retitled as "Holá, Holá".
