    ...I present, Sugar Sugar by Ron Dante & The Archies.



    I recall being in kindergarten when this was a hit.

    Believe it or not, this is the first version I recall hearing. My dad has been a reggae/ska/rocksteady fan since before I was born, so he used to play all the great Studio one records all the time when I was little.

    Lots of Ganja makes for questionable judgement....

    Wouldn't that be a slightly different toke? It is Bob Marley, after all, mon!

    Along with that thought, is there another version of "Yummy Yummy" to justify its existence??

    Well, there's this but I can't say it helps to justify it's existence. Sometimes a song just sucks.
