: : 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?
