Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da  Beatles

[G]Desmond had a barrow in the [D7]market place,
Molly is the singer in a [G]band.
Desmond says to [G7]Molly, girl I [C]like your face
and Molly [G]says this as she [D7]takes him by the [G]hand.

Ob-la-[G]di, ob-la-da, life goes [Bm]on      [Em]bra.
[G]La la how the [D7]life goes [G]on. (repeat)

[G]Desmond takes a trolley to the [D7]jeweller's store,
buys a twenty carat golden [G]ring.
Takes it back to [G7]Molly, waiting [C]at the door
and as he [G]gives it to her [D7]she begins to [G]sing.
chorus

[NC]In a couple of [C]years they have built a home sweet [G]home
[NC]with a couple of [C]kids running in the yard
of [G]Desmond and Molly [D7]Jones.

[G]Happy ever after in the [D7]market place,
Desmond lets the children lend a [G]hand.
Molly stays at [G7]home and does her [C]pretty face
and in the [G]evening she still [D7]sings it with the [G]band.
chorus

[E]And if you want some fun, sing [D7]ob-la-di bla-[G]da!

(NC --> No chord is played)

Just got through listening to "The Beatles" play it on you-tube. Try it in Bb. I think you'll find it much closer to the original if not right on.
