In 8th grade our choral teacher had us sing Ob La Di, Ob La Da for a spring concert. It was the most awesome thing.
Beatles are the definition of Rock N' Roll

The Beatles have been named one of the greatest bands of all time... Anyone who doesn't like them.. Should at least respect their name & influence in music.
debby233456 The Beatles are amazing for ALL ages. Don't be self righteous. I'm not 21 and my first word was "Paul" and I'm named after one of their songs. It doesn't matter how old you are to appreciate their music.
My teacher love this song and she told me to listen to it
What the F do u know about Beatles music?u r. Probably not even 21.
Get a life Sippa9
Fyi: it's if u want some fun, try ob la di , ob la da! ;-)
'Humourous lyrics'? Well the messed up words are pretty funny, glad they kept it that way. Though Paul may have just been to lazy to record again. Though in Helter Skelter...
La la why don't you get a job... Oh oops...
Jimbgood what the hell do u know!!! Stick to what u know best!! Nothing about music u idot!!
niralimurthy
Awesome!!
I've always loved The Beatles :) great song! :)
I can play this melody on recorder.
"Girl I like your face" ...quite the pick-up line if I do say so myself. (;
Bouncy song.
ob la di ob la da was the best tattoo i ever got ✌️
Heard it live in Seattle at Safeco Field.. So fun, Paul sounded great!
I love this song. John stumbled into Abbey Road studios one night and shouted 'I am f**king stoned!' He sat down at a piano and came up with the piano intro the group had been struggling to compose. One of my favorite Beatles songs!!
Happy happy happy
Paul plays this live - excellent!
I love this song
Gotta love the Beatles!
One of my faves

Life goes on BRA?
this song is filed away in my mind with Our House by CSN, similar corky tune about a couple with a couple of kids.
Oh a song about Molly soooo suprising
This song always puts me in a good mood!
Do up that pretty face, Desmond!
My mom used to sing this song to me all the time when I was really young
I think the Beatles are great but it has to be said. WTF?
Bizarre attempt at reggae.
Lets see how many people correct my minimal Spanish skills :D
Me gusta mucho escuchar musica. Mi favorito musica es The Beatles.
I love this song! It is just soooo fun to hear and to sing! Ob-la-di Ob-la-da life goes on bra!

since my childhood ,i love beatles music and still forever
flyguy000555

The Beatles would never lie to you. Please wake up. Wu-Tang!!
