The Lyrics

RIP Betty. Thank you all the laughs over the years, and thank you for being a friend.
[Instrumental Intro]

Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
White Betty's on the dial (bam-ba-lam)
On TV long while (bam-ba-lam)
She said "I'll make Rob Redford mine" (bam-ba-lam)
Allen Ludden's wife (bam-ba-lam)
I said oh, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)

[Instrumental Break]

Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
She hosted SNL (bam-ba-lam)
When she's old as hell (bam-ba-lam)
She won five Emmys (bam-ba-lam)
She was hot in M'ami (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)

Get it!

[Instrumental break]

Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
She's from Oak Park, man (bam-ba-lam)
The home of Ernest Hem (bam-ba-lam)
She's a comedy queen (bam-ba-lam)
What's the Password mean? (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty (bam-ba-lam)
Whoa, White Betty
Bam-ba-laaam, yeah, yeah
