Help me find the name of this crazy 50's song please!!

Alllllllllllllllll right, now this is going to be difficult. I’ve been trying to find a song that I heard at a party but haven’t been able to. Mainly because I couldn’t get the lyrics and also because it’s lead by a melody rather than by proper lyrics. The singer has almost a comedic voice, kind of high (but not too high). It’s a 50’s classics that everybody probably knows and has heard at least once in their lifetime. It’s a very high energy song. Very danceable. It’s been stuck in my head ever since.

Nooooow, I’m going to try to write what I heard, it doesn’t mean that those are the lyrics. As I sad the song is lead by the melodic doo-wop.

"I wanna everybody sing (say?) about the bam-a-bada-bam-bam-bam–bada-bam-bam-bam—bam"

This is embarrassing. I know it’s impossible to find a song like that but it really went that way. This is not a joke. As I said it’s been stuck in my head and I can’t find it! I know there is a lot of die hard music fans here so that’s why I posted it. I don’t know it got stuck in my head now since I had heard it many other times before. It’s driving me mad! It starts with the singer singing that and then the drums come in really hard and really fast (as far as I can remember). Hopefully there is someone out there with a good memory for oldies and that can understand what I mean with those crazy “lyrics”. Heeeelp me please!

Could it have been a song used in a movie, such as Animal House?

It's none of the above but it's in the same vein as Blue Moon and Wooly Bully. But maybe faster. If anyone remember any other song please write! Thank you for those are helping!
