Oldies/60's hit with gibberish lyrics

It's actually not originally by The Muppets, but rather by Piero Umiliani. He composed it for the soundtrack to Svezia, Inferno e Paradiso (known in English as Sweden, Heaven and Hell).

Actually - no. This was a hit song in the 60's first, we had it on 45rpm and I remember listening to it long before the muppets "re-mix". So far i can't find it online - and the 45 is long gone now :( but I'll keep looking and post back if I find it.

Here it is - Piero Umiliani ‎ Mah-Na-Mah-Na / You Tried To Warn Me on Ariel Records (US) version 1968.
