"Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow" is a novelty song by The Rivingtons. Combined with "The Bird is the Word" (also by The Rivingtons), it became the basis for the hit song "Surfin' Bird".

The song was featured on the album Muppet Beach Party, sung by a bunch of giant clams Kermit and Clifford encounter on the beach. In the Sesame Street Live show, Can't Stop Singing, three sheep sing part of the song.
