song with the fewest words

On the way in this morning, the iPod tossed up a song with a whole lot of words—Fountains of Wayne, "The Girl I Can't Forget"—and then one with almost none—Fatboy Slim, "Praise You." Which made me laugh, and then wonder: does "Praise You" win the "fewest words in a song with lyrics" contest? I mean, it has one verse of four lines, and all the words are that verse or from it:

We've come a long long way together
Through the hard times and the good
I have to celebrate you baby
I have to praise you like I should

(Contrast the lyrics for the Fountains of Wayne song.)

Other suggestions? Bonus if you actually like the song in question.
