Thank you, my friend CPL Dave Hoover for sharing the music video of the glam rock band The Sweet performing Funny Funny written by songwriters Nicholas Barry Chinn and Mike Chapman.
This music appealed to teeny boppers :-)

"Nicholas Barry joined the Australian-born Mike Chapman, who was a waiter at a night club Chinn frequented, and they decided to team up. Chapman was already a professional musician and songwriter with the band Tangerine Peel, and the two quickly joined up with Mickie Most's RAK label. They began writing songs for a new glam rock band, Sweet, and their compositions accounted for all the singles the band released in their early years.
Chinn's and Chapman's songwriting style was so successful with British and worldwide audiences that Sweet had an uninterrupted string of million-selling hits in the next few years. These included "Co-Co", "Little Willy", "Wig-Wam Bam", "Blockbuster!" "The Ballroom Blitz", "Hell Raiser" and "Teenage Rampage".
Chinn and Chapman stopped working with Sweet in 1975 but achieved equal success worldwide with Suzi Quatro, for whom they wrote many hits."

"Funny Funny" written by Nicholas Barry Chinn and Mike Chapman
Lyrics
"Ah, ah, ah
Tell me, is it really true?
This feeling that I feel for you
Your own kind of loving
That makes me think nothing
Could ever take the place of you

And it's so funny, funny what you do honey, honey
What you do, what you mean to me
And you know honey, honey, though it's so funny, funny
That you mean all the world to me

Ah, ah, ah

Ever since you came my way
I knew it was my lucky day
The sun started shining
When you started smiling
And I know it's gonna stay that way

And it's so funny, funny what you do honey, honey
What you do, what you mean to me
And you know honey, honey though it's so funny, funny
That you mean all the world to me

Can't imagine loving anyone but you
(Honey, honey, so funny, funny)
Every minute, loving everything you do
(Honey, honey, so funny, funny)
Couldn't see my way without you
Now I've gotta tell the world about you

Tell me, is it really true?
This feeling that I feel for you
Your own kind of loving
That makes me think nothing
Could ever take the place of you

And it's so funny, funny what you do honey, honey
What you do, what you mean to me
And you know honey, honey though it's so funny, funny
That you mean all the world to me

And it's so funny, funny what you do honey, honey
What you do, what you mean to me
And you know honey, honey 'though it's so funny, funny
That you mean all the world to me"

Don't know this song but it definitely sounds like "bubble gum" music
