One thing that I never really spoke about on the album is how Doodle and Phant (the elephant on the cover) were such good friends. I would've liked Phant to share his feelings about Doodle during the spoken sections of the song, but he was very choked up. He misses Doodle a lot. Maybe someday he'll tell us about the Doodle that we never got to know.

Before Doodle left on his interstellar journey, he cooked Phant a big tray of his famous biscuit streudel. Unfortunately, we don't know who Doodle left it with to hand off to Phant. Maybe you can help him find his streudel.


Doodle says Hello
Doodle is my pet poodle
He spends his days at poolside
and he likes his biscuit streudel
Say Hello to Doodle
Let's be courteous now
Doodle don't eat cheesesteak,
'cos Doodle don't like cow.
Doodle know no prejudice
He stands at 2 foot 5
Doodle sleeps at will,
Please say Hi!

doodle do what will do doodle do what doodle will do!

The world serves it's own needs,
I know that I've got mine

Doodle's lead a good life
putting on his welding mask
Doodle's got his blueprint,
Doodle's got his task
Don't you question Doodle,
he hasn't had his fill
Doodle's one of one,
he's got no time to kill

For days and nights worked Doodle,
Not a drop of sweat or cry
Doodle likes his rocketship
Just say Bye!

doodle do what will do doodle do what doodle will do!

The world serves it's own needs,
I know that I've got mine

Doodle knows the great life now
Doodle is way past Mars
Tickertape in from NASA
Doodle says ...

"It's full of stars"
