Song Stuck in Head

I keep getting this song stuck in my head lately, but when I start singing it, Diana has no idea what I'm singing. It is of course the Mahna Mahna song. It's hard to find online, because of copyright issues, so watch these clips fast before they get taken down or have their audio tracks disabled.
