Original Pat Boone Lyrics

Hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
It's so new to me
What you do to me
Hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
When you're holding me tight

Never dreamed anybody could kiss that a-way
Bring me bliss that away, what a kiss that a-way
What a wonderful feelin' to feel that a-way
Tell me where have you been all my life

Oh, hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
It's so new to me
What you do to me
Hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
When you're holding me tight

Never knew that my heart could go "zing" that a-way
Ting-a-ling that away, make me sing that away
Said "goodbye" to my troubles, they went that a-way
Ever since you came into my life

Oh, hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
It's so new to me
What you do to me
Hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
When you're holding me tight

There's a cute little cottage for two that a-way
Skies are blue that away, dreams come true that a-way
If you say I can share it with you that a-way
I'll be happy the rest of my life

Oh, hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
It's so new to me
What you do to me
Hot diggity, dog ziggity
Boom what you do to me
When you're holding me tight
When you're holding me tight

Hot Dog!

Tommyfied lyrics

Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
What they do to me
Taste so good to me
Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
When you're eating them right

Never dreamed any hot dog could taste that a-way
With relish that away, mustard, too, that a-way
What a wonderful wiener to eat that a-way
Doesn't get any better than this

Oh, Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
What they do to me
Taste so good to me
Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
When you're eating them right

Never knew a potato could whip that a-way
Sour cream that away, chili sauce that away
Add some salsa and peppers, and serve that a-way
A Potato Tornado for me
Oh, Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
What they do to me
Taste so good to me
Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
When you're eating them right

There's a cute little stand on the beach in Cape May
Jackson Street that away,a short walk that a-way
If you'll join me for breakfast or lunch that a-way
You'll be happy the rest of your life

Oh, Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
What they do to me
Taste so good to me
Hot Dog Tommy's Hot Dog Tommy's
Boom taste so good to me
When you're eating them right
When you're eating them right

Hot Dog!

Under the Boardwalk

Original

Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar upon the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fireproof
Under the Boardwalk, down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby, that's where I'll be

Under the Boardwalk, out of the sun
Under the Boardwalk, we'll be having some fun
Under the Boardwalk, people walking above
Under the Boardwalk, we'll be falling in love
Under the Boardwalk, Boardwalk

In the park you hear the happy sounds of a carousel
You can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell
Under the Boardwalk, down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby, that's where I'll be

Under the Boardwalk, out of the sun
Under the Boardwalk, we'll be having some fun
Under the Boardwalk, people walking above
Under the Boardwalk, we'll be falling in love
Under the Boardwalk, boardwalk

Tommyfied lyrics

Oh, when you're at the beach and feeling hungry for something to eat
And you're getting so thirsty that you want to get out of the heat
Hot Dog Tommy's, down by the sea
Grab a hot dog and soda - that's where I'll be

Now at the stand you'll see a happy guy with a funny hat
Serving wieners and 'taters and a lot more than that
Hot Dog Tommy's, down by the sea
Grab a hot dog and soda - that's where I'll be

Hot Dog Tommy's, out of the sun,
Hot Dog Tommy's, you'll be having some fun
Hot Dog Tommy's, you'll have lots of laughs
Hot Dog Tommy's, it's a touch of class
Hot Dog Tommy's, Tommy's

(Interlude)
Hot Dog Tommy's, down by the sea
Grab a hot dog and soda - that's where I'll be

Hot Dog Tommy's, out of the sun,
Hot Dog Tommy's, you'll be having some fun
Hot Dog Tommy's, you'll have lots of laughs
Hot Dog Tommy's, it's a touch of class
Hot Dog Tommy's, Tommy's

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

<BGSOUND SRC="isawmomy.mid" LOOP=0>

Original

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn't see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom fast asleep.

Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

Tommyfied lyrics

I saw Tommy serving chili dogs
On the street along the beach today
A wiener on his head
Laughed at everything he said.
He even grabbed a broom
and cleaned the street along the way

Then I learned that they now serve breakfast too
in a cup for those folks on the run
Oh what a laugh it was for me
To eat beside the sea
Hot Dog Tommy's on the beach Cape May

On the Way to Cape May

Original

You looked so very pretty, when we met in Ocean City,
like someone, oh, so easy to adore.
I sang this little ditty, on our way to Ocean City,
heading south along New Jersey's shore.

On the way to Cape May, I fell in love love with you.
On the way to Cape May, I saw my dreams come true.
I was taken by your smile, as we drifted by Sea Isle.
My heart was really gone when we reached Avalon.

On the way to Cape May, Stone Harbor's skies were blue.
We were naming the day when Wildwood came in view.
If you're gonna be my spouse, we'd better head for that Court House
On the way to Cape May,
On the way to Cape May.

Tommyfied lyrics

I felt so very famished, as I looked for just a sandwich
while I walked along the street down by the shore
I wanted something yummy that would satisfy my tummy
Hot Dog Tommy's then came into view

On the beach in Cape May, I saw a funny man
Wiener on his head in front of a hot dog stand
He was such a fine funster and a really great punster,
I had found the right place, got my order in hand.

When you stroll 'round Cape May, Jackson and Beach Avenue
Look for Tommy's Hot Dogs then check their great menu
If you get a slight craving, learn why everyone's raving
Hot Dog Tommy's the place
Hot Dog Tommy's the place

Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire

<BGSOUND SRC="Chestnuts_Roasting.mid" LOOP=0>

Original

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some Mistletoe
help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy to see if
Reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
to kids from one to ninety-two
Altho' it's been said many times
Many ways; "Merry Christmas to you"

Tommyfied lyrics

Hot dogs roasting on an open grill
Tommy quipping on the street
Mary cooking in the galley inside
preparing food where people meet.

Everybody knows a hot dog on a nice fresh bun
helps to make the summer bright
Whipped potatoes with their toppings galore
are offered, too, for your delight.

We know that folks who tour Cape May
like hot dogs topped with lots of goodies served this way
and all who stop will also learn we're
serving breakfast in a cup to start the day

And so we're offering this simple fare
to all who visit far and near
Now let us say many times, many ways
Hot Dog Tommy's - we're here.
