It's been more than a DECADE since Numa Numa kid brought this video to the internets.   A decade!  No, I'm not old, I'm happy I live in a world where random strangers do in public what I do in private and make me laugh.  And dance.   The Gary Numa-Numa video was originally released in 2004 on the  Newsgrounds.com website.   Gary has a website, where he has parlayed this cute little song parody into web fame.  http://www.garybrolsma.com/

Gary's "original".

The original song as performed by O'Zone and titled Dragostea Din Tei (link below), doesn't get enough credit for it's addictive pop-py qualities.   I wonder how many people remember any of the lyrics of the original song, beyond the Mai-ya-hee and Numa-numa.  A few of the lines are as pretty as the music is catchy.  The rest of the lines are as dorky as our Gary, and just as campy fabulous.   Thank you Metrolyrics.

Mai-Ya-Hi (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Hoo (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Ha (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Ha-Ha
Hello, Salute, It's me, Your Duke
And I made something that's real to show you how I feel
Hello, Hello, It's me, Picasso
I will paint, My words of love, with your name on every wall.

(Chorus)
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Ooh a Ooh ah ay, Ooh ah Ooh a Ooh ah ay
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Hey little lover stay, or all my colors fade away
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.

I sold, my strings, my song and dreams
And I bought some paints to match the colors of my love.
Hello, Helloo, It's me again, Picasso.
I will spray, my words of love with your name on every wall.

(Chorus)
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Ooh a Ooh ah ay, Ooh ah Ooh a Ooh ah ay
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Hey little lover stay, or all my colors fade away
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.

(Ending 2x)
Mai-Ya-Hi (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Hoo (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Ha (Ma Mi Ah)
Mai-Ya-Ha-Ha

(Chorus)
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Ooh a Ooh ah ay, Ooh ah Ooh a Ooh ah ay
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.
When you leave my colors fade to gray
Hey little lover stay, or all my colors fade away
Every word of love I use to say.
Now I paint them everyday.
