Nashvilles Catchiest Songs

Okay, I'll give you the lyrics then you tell me the song:

If you guessed "Elvira" by the Oakridge Boys, give yourself a boot-scootin' pat on the back.
According to my friends at Webster Public Relations in Nashville, AOL Music's "The Boot", lists the top 10 catchiest songs in country music. They tell me that Duane Allen, lead singer for the Oaks, happened upon the list, started reading it as it was posted, in descending order, and saw Toby Keith's "How Do You Like Me Now?" and Roger Miller's "Dang Me." He saw Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler" and Hank Williams Jr.'s "Family Tradition." Then Shania Twain's "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" and Billy Ray Cyrus' "Achy Breaky Heart," George Jones' "It's Finally Friday" and Taylor Swift's "You Belong With Me." He was thinking the Oaks didn't have a song on the list until he got down to Number One, "Elvira." He said you could hear him screaming all the way from Oklahoma. Then he wanted to thank Dallas Frazier for writing such a great song that bought all the Boys a new house and a new car.

Now I can't get the song out of my mind...oom-poppa-oom-poppa-mow-mow.
