Usin' the phone booth Makin' a few calls Doodlin' weird things Usin' the booth walls Got me a big date Waitin' for my cat Putting his shine on So he can look dap I enjoy procrastinatin' 'Cause I'm busy while I'm waiting, Doodlin' away, doodlin' away Sittin' and dinin' Dinner beginnin' Started designin' Usin' the linen Talkin' to my man Doodlin' my bit Waiter got salty Told me to please quit Told the waiter, "Don't be dizzy "Can't you see I'm very busy "Doodlin' away, doodlin' away" "Do you doodle all day?" Said the waiter in his way "Do you doodle all night?" Told the waiter he was right "In your doodlin' way" "That's the way I'm gonna stay" "Are you thinkin' things right?" "Doodlin' sheds a lot of light" "I don't know what I can do" "Ain't nothing you can do" "With old doodlin' you" "Doodin's all I want to do" That's for true! Why does every single thing I see Look exactly like a doodle to me? If I ever have a doubt What life is all about I get my pencil out and then commence to doodlin' And I find it so relaxing 'Specially when I feel that life is really taxing! 'Cause weird designs They only show what's going on In weirder minds 'Cause when you doodle then your noodle's flying blind Every little thing that you write Just conceivably might Be a thought that you capture While coppin' a wink Doodlin' takes you beyond what you see When you write what you think I'd feel so lost without my doodlin' Doodlin' really helps me ease my mind I'd be tempest-tossed Without my doodlin' When I'm doodlin' there's one thing I find Truly, I really really really truly wanna figure out What my doodlin's all about Later the waiter Had me arrested Took me to Bellevue Where I was tested Had me a doctor Probin' my noodle 'Fore he was half-done Taught him to doodle Showed him hidden thoughts that linger Find an outlet through your finger Doodlin' away, doodlin' away Doctor was real nice Told me to be cool Looked at the waiter Called him the real fool Looked at my baby Told me him to be free Got me to doodlin' So he could bug me When he put his arms around me Quite to his surprise he found me Doodlin' away, doodlin' away We just doodle all day!
