Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is a song credited to Lennon–McCartney, but written by Paul McCartney and released by The Beatles on their 1968 album The Beatles ( also referred to as The White Album ). It was released as a single that same year in many countries, but not in the United Kingdom, nor in the United States until 1976.
Paul McCartney wrote the song around the time that highlife and reggae were 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-Emuakpor, an acquaintance of McCartney, used.
The song is in the key of B flat and written in 4/4. The alternative version on Anthology 3 is in the key of A major.
