Song: ba ba daa baa ba ba da ba, ba ba daa baa da , 60s/70s/80s acoustic rock

Looking for a song with repeated refrain that goes

"ba ba daa baa ba ba da ba,
ba ba daa baa da "

It's a rock song from either 60s, 70s or 80s I think (or maybe even 90s)  with a folky feel.

The verse is sung by a solo male vocalist then multiple male vocalists sing the "ba ba da" refrain multiple times then the song continues going between the solo singer and the refrain.

They literally sing "bah" and "dah".

Update: For anyone who can read music, this is how the tune "ba ba da" tune goes

 1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 |
 - - - G - G | A - - - - - |
       ba  ba  daa

 1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 |
 C - - - - - | B - A G - G |
 baa           ba  bada  ba

 1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 |
 - - - E - G | A - - - - - |
       ba  ba  daa

 1 2 3 4 5 6 | 1 2 3 4 5 6 |
 C - - - - - | G - - - - - |
 ba            da


(Note: E is the lowest note and C is the highest note, the other notes fall in between)

Eh, no.  And is annoying that this is mostly what comes up when I search.

Found that someone has listed over 2000 songs with "ba ba ba" or similar in them, though.  I think it might be in this list somewhere.

Possibly "Barbara Ann" by The Beach Boys  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPRonG87eKw

This was it.  I eventually got it when it started playing in season 4 of Bojack Horseman.
