: : I have heard this saying
on a few songs I do not know its meaning. For instance Mrs. Robinson a song by
Simon and Garfunkle uses the term coo coo ka choo Mrs Robinson any onfo would
be appreciated. Thanks

: Also in a Beatle's song--The Walrus:
: "...Expert, texpert
: Smoking choker
: Dont you think the joker laughs at you..."
: "...I am the walrus-- coo coo ka choo"
: Just my opinion but I don't think "coo coo ka choo" has a meaning---sounds like just nonsense syllables like "doo wop doo wop" or "shad a lack a jingle bop", "rama lama ding dong" and "boogity boogity shoo".
The Compleat Beatles gives the phrase as "goo goo g' joob." A Beatle-maniac walked by my computer just now and imparted this information. Where does that leave us?
