Is it "Blue Money" by Van Morrison?

I've been enjoying listening on youtube the various guesses.. and this one sounds like it might be it.  If it is.. you win an internetz  ;D

The first thing that flashed in to my mind when I read your description was Malcolm Mclaren. He has done all sorts of funky stuff like that. You might look over his music catalog.

Billy Joel's "Piano Man"?

 I'm pretty sure it isn't 'Piano Man'.  That one doesn't use 'doos'.  It uses 'Lahs'. 

(and that's something Inever thought I'd write).

J. Geils Band "I Do."

I'm on my Kindle so I can't link but could it be that?

The only thing coming to mind is "De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da" by The Police.

I can't imagine how you could have described it any better than you did!

Now that I've heard the song, your description is clear as a bell! ;D

Glad you got an answer.

Your doo-doos were fine - I knew exactly what song you meant when I read them :-).

I'm listening to it now and I can swear I hear him singing "Do do do you do do do..." I looked up the lyrics even, and it said that was correct O.o But I have to say your lyrics were really close to the real thing, and it is really hard to tell what he is saying in some of it.

I had 'dee' in place of the 'you'...  My only defense is I had only heard the song 3 times since I heard it the first time in 1975.

Point taken. Also, now I am probably going to be obsessed with this song and it's all your fault.

But it's a great song!  I've been singing it since I read mrs_deb's post.
