Does anybody know of a song with the lyrics "a little bit of this, a little but of that"?

Asked by johnny (335points) March 26th, 2009 from iPhone

I heard this one song on the radio the other day and I never got the name of the artist or song, and I’ve been looking high and low on iTunes and the Internet to find it, but can’t. The song is a really “poppy” sounding song and is sung by a girl. There is also a a few guitar solos in the song that are awesome. It sounds like it’s somewhat of a newer song too, so if anyone can help me out, this is driving me crazy.

P. S. It’s not a country song by Carolyn somethin or other either.

When I typed “a little bit of this, a little bit of that” in Google, I pull up:

Carolyn Dawn Johnson, “Little bit of this, Little bit of that”.

Is that it?

Based on your description, I would say this is it.

Sweet Jesus. The first thing that popped into my head was a song from Fiddler on the Roof. (Anatevka) I’m such a loser. ;-)

@VzzBzz “Rockafeller Skank” , but it’s a song sung by a man. Right lyrics, wrong sex. :)

@Les @Mr_M
“Anatevka” from Fiddler on the Roof popped into my head first as well. Probably because I played the part of Tevye in a college production many years ago.

@3or4monsters: I know which one I was thinking now, “Weapon of Choice” by Fatboy Slim has a little plug of those words. Brain is sloooooooooooow this a.m.

@Mr_M the accordion is the instrument I started with at age 5 and still play today at age 60!

@Les “It doesn’t mean a thing, but even so, after twenty-five years…it’s nice to know”
