95 More Songs of Summer - "Yummy Yummy Yummy," The Ohio Express

My dad walks in after a day at work, and says "I just heard the craziest song on the radio...I think they were singing "Yummy yummy yummy I got a baby in my tummy."

Well, close...but no cigar.  Sure it's a dumb song, but it's also one of the bubblegum classics that Lester Bangs defended so eloquently in the first edition of The Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock 'n Roll.

And regardless of what you think about the song, you gotta love the comment from my dad.
