Okay lets go Pandora loved this old school cut great memorie's listening to this cut good times !!!!!!!!
"Don't worry about the lyrics, just sing song your day."
Wow!! It can't be ,,,,amazing ☺
90s forever,,lov e this song!!
I want to visit Tom's Restaurant in Manhattan, order a coffee, read a newspaper, look for the funnies and take it all in! But I suppose that's what everyone wants to do and you can't get a seat....
High Skool memories n listening to this in 4th period which was auto shop ... Lol
I really like that little beat she sings the majority of the song
I remember this from Junior High School.
I like it
Hahahaha @ ghetto rap version
I like the song. But whts does it mean?
iskate3303
This song is majorly weird!!!!!!! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
The evil genius will haunt me for endless annoying hours---than x fur nuthin!!
Do do do do fkn shoot me do do doooody doooooody doooodooooo! ! ! ? !
I've only heard the ghetto rap version. I had no idea it wasn't the original, this is fantastic!
I think it's safe to say this is the most annoying song ever since the B52's littered the airwaves. Now those guys wrote some really annoying stuff.
Calvertron - Doo Doo (Jelo Mix). You're welcome :)
The comment under me: HELL NO. This song may be describing her morning, but it's not annoying. Get a damn life. Or dislike and shut up.
savannahruck m a n
Dude she's just describing her morning in an annoying way :/.....
Boy am I enjoying the Garbage station.... This is a classic of the modern era. Cutely mundane in a way that encourages relaxation and thinking. Observation.
Dah dah Dah dah Dah dah Dah dah...I love this part haha
Love this song:)
SEXY VOICE LOVE TOMS DINER
Nicolas nailed it. I remember when this came out lol
If you pay deeper attention to the meaning, she is going about her everyday, routine life, observing insignifican t occurrences, but within those nothingness is intertwined her nostalgic reminiscing of passing sweet time with the one that makes her heart beat.
@nicolas
I totally agree. This song is about nothing more than her chilling in a diner people-watch i n g , but it's definitely cool.
This song reminds me of a very specific time in my youth.
When I'm bored. This is what is on my mind! Lol! But I love this sonf
What's weird about the song is to hear it without the trip-hop beats & just Suzanne's vocal, as she originally recorded it. You miss the music! On the plus side, her original version lyrically goes on for a little bit after the 'bells of the ca-thee-draa a a l . . . . ' line.

The melody is so catchy xD
I don't like this song a lot

This is the PERFECT song for when I have writer's block. It clears my mind and makes me think. Music does that for me.
chrespublicu s
love it. the melody is always stuck in my head. :)
First heard this song from the movie Untamed Heart, I love this song, it reminds me of someones dream.
I always thought this was by Dido at first
This is the random song that always pops in my head...
i agree email
Random, everyday-peo p l e , nonsense & a Phat Beat in the backdrop. You couldn't get me to laugh any harder nor bob my head any cooler. Miss 90's Flava, Peace.

This reminds me of fast times at Riverside High!!!lol
The best part about this song? When it pops on the radio at a coffee shop while you're people watching sipping coffee.

@ Emory and Jon Mendoza - Also "Daddy's Little Girl" by Nikki D.

@Jon Mendoza... "Back to Life" by Soul II Soul?

I remember being taught proper intonation and pacing at a linguistics class using this song. It's funny it seemed so weird back then and so close and familiar now.
Dang I remember this song being used in another song's hip hop sample...can n o t remember what it is...very catchy tho...
I love how it doesn't rhyme :)
da da da da da da da da ...
Always loved the beat in this song
great, now I'll have this in my head for days HAHA
i love this song. when i was young i thought it was random and pointless, but now i realize the whole idea of being an observer in life. pretty deep stuff.
