...Actually , IIRC , I first heard " Madison Time " in its use in the soundtrack album to the original , non- musical , version of Hairspray , the first film , which I believe Waters did write - After which he let be taken and rewritten into a musical , leading to the later film versions of the musical .
I don't think Waters directly re-wrote it to make the Broadway version , though he approved of it .

You are correct, John Waters didn't write the song----but, I was talking-about the DANCE (and, before you say it, John Waters didn't have anything to do with the creation of the dance, either).

Desmond has a barrow in the market place
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond says to Molly "girl I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewellers stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring (Golden ring?)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (Sing)

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on, yeah (No)

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond let's the children lend a hand (Arm! Leg!)
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Yes, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Yeah, happy ever after in the market place
Molly let's the children lend a hand (Foot!)
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band


Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how the life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da

(Thank you, uh, ha ha ha!)


I bolded the part that makes it rather obscure for the time period...this I don't think transgenderism or transvestiteness was spoken about so openly.

And of course The Walrus by The Beatles, because towards the end they chant 'smoke pot, smoke pot, everybody smoke pot, everybody smoke pot'

Men Without Hats - Sideways from 1991

Just as catchy as "Safety Dance" but a totally different style

...Great tune...But would it be conskdered too non-PC/extolling sexual harassment nowadays ?
And is it too much concerned with " Dead Europeans " by today's standards?
Is he singing " a little bald at the knee "?
