That's not much to go on, got some more. Dave Van Ronk recorded a song which may fit called Mr Noah. I don't remember much of it. He sing about the great flood & repeats Doodley Doo, Doodley Doo, Doodley, (6x), Doo Good Luck, Barry

There were a couple of ragtime blues- the first by Blind Blake called "Skoodle Doo Doo" (I think) and the second by Big Bill Broonzy which he sort of loosely based on the first called "Skoodle Loo Doo" (I may have mixed up the names). Is it either of these or a cover of one of them? If so I could probably get the words - I've got recordings of both.

Doodle Dee Doo, well the song that brings to mind is "There was a little rooster by the barn yard gate......and and that little rooster went cocka doodle doo, dee doodle dee doodle dee doo." Is that the song you are looking for?

This song starts out, (I believe) Won't you please sing to me that sweet melody, Doodle Dee Doo, Doodle Dee Doo, Ain't nothing to it, just Doodle Dee Doo it, Doodle Dee Doo, Doodle Dee Doo. - It goes on into something more, but I just don't know who did it or when.

I heard a guy pick it on lead guitar last Saturday night in Sioux City, Iowa and I may try to find him. Maybe he would know it.. Thanks for the suggestions...

For some reason I think this might be "A Doodlin' Song", recorded by the great Peggy Lee. If so, you might try Rabid Squirrel's Jazz Archive. Or I might just have my synapses crossed.

When I was a kid we had a small but fantastic collection of 78rpm record and on the back of a recording of San Antonio Rose (I think it was on that one) was a tune called Doodle Dee Doo, or Doodle Doo Doo. It was a kind of jazzed up/swing era piano version of what sounded like a ragtime original. Very catchy & upbeat, made me smile everytime I heard it. Don't have the records any more, so I can't look up the artist.

Is there a chance that you want the song that goes,

Please play for me that sweet melody called
Doodle doo doo, Doodle doo doo
I like the rest, but what I like best
is Doodle doo doo, Doodle doo doo
Simp-l-est thing, there's nothing much to it
No need to sing it, just doodle-doo it
I like the rest, but what I like best
Is doodle-dee-doodle-dee do.

I think I may have seen another verse for it recently and I could look around for it. I had it in an old (50's) collection of pop songs from the 30's and I may even still have the book.

I can't remember exactly whether it's doodle-doo-doo or doodle-dee-doo. I seem to remember the written version as the former, but everyone sang the latter.

Subject: Lyr Add: DOODLE DOO DOO (Kassel/Stitzel)

DOODLE DOO DOO
Words & music by Art Kassel & Mel Stitzel, ©1924.

1. I've just heard a melody
That is always haunting me.
Funny little strain,
Running through my brain,
It's as sweet as can be.
It has such a pleading way.
Though it's with me night and day,
When I hear someone playing,
I walk right up and say:

CHORUS: Please play for me
That sweet melody
Called doodle-doo-doo, doodle-doo-doo.
I like the rest,
But what I like best
Is doodle-doo-doo, doodle-doo-doo.
Simplest thing—
There's nothing much to it.
You don't have to sing,
Just doodle-doo-doo it.
I love it so!
Wherever I go,
I doodle-doo, doodle-doo-doo.

2. I've heard all the melodies
From the blues to rhapsodies.
They all come and go,
But there's one I know
That'll linger and tease.
I've found all the blues a pest;
Rhapsodies to me a jest,
So if you want to please me,
Just take this one request: CHORUS

For Francis Hahn:
I remember the chorus above slightly differently.
Please play for me that sweet melody called Doodle Dee Doo,
    Doodle Dee Doo.
I like the rest, but what I like best is Doodle Dee Doo,
    Doodle Dee Doo.
Simplest thing, there's nothin' much to it
You don't have to sing, just Doodle Dee Doo it.
I love it so, wherever I go, I Doodle Dee Doodle Dee Doo.
I remember the tune, but would like to find it on line so I could send it to my grandson. I've made a slight change so it could be his
campaign song when he runs for president in 2024.

My grandpa used to sing a song to us when we were little. He sang doodle dee doo. While it had the same chorus as doodle doo do, it had different versions of the rest of the song. He used to sing about the rooster and the hen are at it again. Something about rooster stands up and starts to sing but all he can do is flap his wings.

Somehow "doodle doo doo" doesn't run off the tongue as naturally as "doodle dee doo". Even if a song might be written with the former, it's inevitable it'd be sung that way. It's how language works. In the same way, try wrting a chorus with fiddle doo di, and see what happens, if anyone joins in.
