Paradiddle Joe beats out the rhythm in a rudimental way
He learned from practice while the kids were out of play
He'd paradiddle doodle all day

Paradiddle Joe knew every drum lick before he earned a dime
Stuck to the notion that the only way to climb
Was paradiddle doodle all the time

Flim flam, ratamacue it
Shim sham, very little to it
Jim jam, flamadiddle do it
He can do tricks with the drum sticks

Paradiddle Joe swings every chorus
In a fascinating way sends all the
boys and girls who come to hear him play
A paradiddle doodle all day

Come on folks and say "Hello"
Come up and meet the drummer
We call him "Paradiddle Joe"
And think he's quite a comin

From coast to coast
The hepcats say he's the best of the whole caboodle
He wants to show you how to play a paradiddle doodle

Ok Joe, that's really grand
You pitch that down the middle
But now's the time to sound the bat with a double paradiddle

Folks, you ain't heard nothing yet
We've got him on the griddle
He's burning up and now you'll get a triple paradiddle
