I actually came to this very interesting Wikipedia site because I heard the song below last night and wanted to read the lyrics more carefully. I was very pleased to read the very useful material in this Wikipedia treatment. At the same time, I had to return to Google to find the verbatim lyrics, which are copied below from the site http://www.jacquedee63.com/whoputthebomp.html. (That site appeared to have no specific restrictions on the words below, although it did have a licensing agreement that popped up for a music player. I leave it to you all to determine what is fair use of the material in re the Wikipedia entry.) I was particularly interested in the final (spoken) verse, which as I heard it on the radio seemed to use each of the terms as a specific metaphor. For example, in "You know I mean it from the bottom of my boogity boogity boogity shoo", something like "boogity boogity boogity shoo" would appear to represent "heart" or something a little more extended, rather than purely nonsence syllables. Note: When I look at the material in the copied version below, I am not totally certain that the words in the lyrics below are identical to the words I heard in the radio version last night, although they are at least pretty close.

Who Put the Bomp Artist: Barry Mann Peak: #7 Lyrics by: Barry Mann & Gerry Goffin Year: 1961 Week peaked: 10/1/1961

I'd like to thank the guy Who wrote the song That made my baby Fall in love with me

Who put the bomp In the bomp bah bomp bah bomp? Who put the ram In the rama lama ding dong? Who put the bop In the bop shoo bop shoo bop? Who put the dip In the dip da dip da dip? Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand He made my baby Fall in love with me

When my baby heard Bomp bah bah bomp Bah bomp bah bomp bah bomp bomp Every word went right into her heart And when she heard them singin Rama lama lama lama Rama ding dong She said we'd never have to part So.........

Who put the bomp In the bomp bah bomp bah bomp? Who put the ram In the rama lama ding dong? Who put the bop In the bop shoo bop shoo bop? Who put the dip In the dip da dip da dip? Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand He made my baby Fall in love with me

Each time that were alone Boogity boogity boogity Boogity boogity boogity shoo Sets my baby's heart all aglow And everytime we dance to Dip da dip da dip Dip da dip da dip She always says she loves me so So........

Who put the bomp In the bomp bah bomp bah bomp? Who put the ram In the rama lama ding dong? Who put the bop In the bop shoo bop shoo bop? Who put the dip In the dip da dip da dip? Who was that man? I'd like to shake his hand He made my baby Fall in love with me

MIXTURE: Barry SPEAKS: Darlin, bomp bah bah bomp, bah bomp bah bomp bomp And my honey, rama lama ding dong forever And when I say, dip da dip da dip da dip You know I mean it from the bottom of my boogity boogity boogity shoo

THE SECTION ABOVE IS A COPYRIGHT VIOLATION!!!!! 4.154.226.39 (talk) 21:38, 28 June 2013 (UTC)

I left the lyrics in but changed where they were obviously incorrect (you could argue to no end whether it should be "bomp bah bomp" or "bomp a bomp" etc.). I have a feeling there are probably more than Wikipedia policy would suggest. Gr8white (talk) 23:24, 6 January 2008 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

I removed the "cleanup" template after having cleaned up the article considerably, including:

  • removing trivia section and incorporating relevant material into main sections
  • removed some irrelevant material
  • changing all song titles to use "" in accordance w/ MOS
  • adding several references
  • adding "Chart performance" section

If anyone still has any concerns let me know via this page (I didn't write the article but I feel some ownership after all my editing - I've spent way more time on this than I ever intended)

Someone had a concern about the parody involving the angel's rectum - but it is a pretty straightforward description based on the lyrics and it even uses the "proper" terminology (I didn't write it) - I added a reference and a link to the official lyrics by the parody's author so that should be OK.
