"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" is a song by The Beatles originally released on the double-disc album The Beatles (also known as The White Album), and later released as a single. It is mostly written by Paul McCartney, though credited to Lennon/McCartney.

The song was written around the time that reggae* was beginning to become popular in Britain. The tag line "ob la di ob la da, life goes on, bra" was an expression that Nigerian conga player Jimmy Scott, an acquaintance of McCartney, often used.

According to studio engineer Geoff Emerick, John Lennon openly hated the song. After leaving the studio during recording of the song, (after several days and literally dozens of takes of the song, trying different tempos and styles) Lennon returned a few hours later, heavily drugged, declaring loudly that he was more stoned than he had ever been and than the other Beatles would ever be. He then went to the piano and banged out the unique piano introduction to the song, claiming that it was what the song needed. The chords that he played are the ones used in the final mix.

When singing the vocals for the song, specifically the last verse of the song, Paul made a slip and said "Desmond stayed at home and did his pretty face", rather than Molly, and had Molly letting "the children lend a hand". Reportedly, this mistake was kept in because the other Beatles liked it.

 

*Reggae is a music genre first developed in Jamaica in the late 1960s.

While sometimes used in a broader sense to refer to most types of Jamaican music, the term reggae more properly denotes a particular music style that originated following on the development of ska and rocksteady. Reggae is based on a rhythmic style characterized by regular beats on the off-beat, known as the skank. Reggae is normally slower than ska, and usually has accents on the first and third beat in each bar.

Reggae song lyrics deal with many subjects, including religion, love, sexuality, peace, relationships, poverty, injustice and other social and political issues.
