Artist: Ohio Express

Yummy Yummy Yummy ~ Ohio Express

The Ohio Express was a bubblegum pop/garage band that fronted for Kasenetz and Katz‘s Super K Productions studio musicians working out of New York, including singer/songwriter Joey Levine (“Yummy Yummy Yummy”).

The band is strongly associated with the bubblegum group 1910 Fruitgum Company. Both groups were partially faceless studio assemblages, and partially a real group.

It is rumored that Joe Walsh got his start with the Ohio Express.

Yummy Yummy Yummy

“Yummy Yummy Yummy” is a song by Arthur Resnick and Joey Levine, first recorded by The Ohio Express in 1968, reaching #4 in the U.S. Pop Singles chart. It has since been covered by many artists. The song is considered by some to be the epitome of bubblegum pop, saccharine sweet. Ohio Express was a studio concoction, and none of the “official” members appear on the record. Joey Levine sang lead vocals.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy.
I got love in my tummy,
And I feel like a-lovin you:
Love, you’re such a sweet thing,
Good enough to eat thing
And that’s just a-what I’m gonna do.
Ooh love, to hold ya,
Ooh love, to kiss ya,
Ooh love, I love it so.
Ooh love, you’re sweeter,
Sweeter than sugar.
Ooh love, I wont let you go.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy,
I got love in my tummy,
And as silly as it may seem;
The lovin’ that you re giving,
is what keeps me livin’
And your love is like
Peaches and cream.
Kind-a like sugar,
Kind-a like spices,
Kind-a like, like what you do.
Kind-a sounds funny.
But love,honey
Honey. I love you.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy,
I. got love in my tummy,
That your love can satisfy;
Love, you’re such a sweet thing,
Good enough to eat thing
And sweet thing, that ain’t no lie.
I love to hold ya,
Oh love, to kiss ya,
Ooh love, I love it so.
Ooh love, you’re sweeter,
Sweeter than sugar.
Ooh love, I wont let you go.
