What if you put ‘em together and they didn’t add up to Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo? (Which always perplexed me, because if you add up two things—say, Salaga Doola and Menchicka Boola, and then one more—say, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo—and the result of the addition is the same as one of the components, doesn’t that mean that the other two have no value? This bothered me when I was a child.)

Seek's avatar

@Mimishu – I fear this game isn’t fair to you. Most of the responses are song lyrics that have had a few words changed. Of course, I wouldn’t expect you to have the mental pop culture catalogue of 60s-2000s music most of us are inundated with.

Are there any popular songs where you live that could be turned into “what it’s”?

For example, a children’s game called the Hokey Pokey ends with the line “and that’s what it’s all about”

So… What if the hokey pokey isn’t what it’s all about?
