Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace,
                          Bb
Molly is the singer in a band.
                             Eb
Desmond says to Molly girl I like your face,
           Bb               F                Bb
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand:

                              Cm   Gm
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on   bra'

  Bb                            F
Desmond takes a trolly to the jewler's store,
                            Bb
Buys a twenty carat golden ring
                               Eb
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
           Bb              F             Bb
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing:

 Eb                                                Bb
In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home
 Eb                                        
With a couple of kids running in the yard, 
     Bb                F
of Desmond and Molly Jones


 Bb                       F
Happy ever after in the marketplace,
                                  Bb
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
                                  Eb
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
            Bb                F                 Bb
And in the evening she still sings it with the band.

     Bb                F
of Desmond and Molly Jones


      Bb                        F
