: : : 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?
Beatle expert is correct.
That leaves me in the same position as I was last evening while transporting one of my home-for-the-holidays offsping to the mall and having her explain to me the meaning of deconstructionism---I love it.
