Song Lyric Sunday ~ Do

Thank you Jim Adams for giving us every form of “do” this week so we could have lots of great songs to choose from! I picked “How Do You Do,” a 1972 megahit for the Dutch pop duo of Mouth and MacNeal. It was written by Hans van Hemert and Harry van Hoof.

Before I researched this song, I had assumed that “Mouth” was the nickname of the female half of the duet. Wrong! Willem Duyn (RIP) was the male half and he was also known as Big Mouth. The female half was Maggie MacNeal (born Sjoukje van’t Spijker). Big Mouth had sung in various other bands, while MacNeal enjoyed a solo career; then they teamed up for their smash success song, plus a few others that charted well. They split in 1974 and never did as well again as far as the music charts.

Once I said I wanted you, I don’t remember why
I often wonder if it’s true, that you could make me cry
I only know it’s long ago, you said, I love you too
But I got one solution left, we’re gonna start anew
How do you do? mmm mmm
I thought why not, na-na, na-na
Just me and you
And then we can, na-na, na-na
Just like before
And you will say, na-na, na-na
Please give me more
And you will think, na-na, na-na
Hey, that’s what I am living for
How do you do? hoe-hoe
Once I said I wanted you and I remember why
I often wonder if it’s true, you still can make me cry
And now it’s not so long ago, you said, I love you too
‘Cause I had one solution left and that’s to start anew
How do you do? mmm
How do you do? hoe-hoe
