Whadd'ya At

Well I was walking in a mainland city
And I was feeling so alone
I was looking for someone or thing to remind me of my home

What I wouldn't give to have somebody nod or wink at me
'Cause thats the way we say hello in my home down by the sea

We never say "Hello" or "How's it going?", "Good day" or any of that
We just look at them and nod our heads or wink and say 'Whadd'ya At?'

Chorus:
Whadd'ya At? How's she going buddy, Whadd'ya At today?
Whadd'ya At? How's she going buddy, Whadd'ya At today?

But then I walked into a shopping mall and much to my surprise
An old friend from my hometown was a sight for my sore eyes
And of all the people I met there in the city or in the mall
I think I like my hometown friend the best one of them all
Because he didn't say "Hello" or "How's it going?", "Good day" or any of that
My old friend he just looked at me and smiled said "Whadd'ya At?"

Chorus

Everybody must say "Whadd'ya At?"
Altogether now

Chorus

Let this be a lesson to all our people who go away
Remember if you meet someone the special words we say
We don't ever say "Hello" or "How's it going?", "Good day"
Or any of that.
You just look at them and nod your head now wink and say "Whadd'ya At?"

Chorus

Now I said "Whadd'ya At?"!
