Yakety Yak   The Coasters


Take out the papers and the trash
or you don't get no spending cash
if you don't scrub that kitchen floor
you ain't gonna rock'n'roll no more
Yakety yak, don't talk back

Just finish cleaning up your room
let's see that dust cloud with that broom
get all that garbage out of side
or you don't go out Friday night
Yakety yak, don't talk back

You just put on your coat and hat
and walk yourself to the laundromat
and when you finish doing that
bring in the dog and put out the cat
Yakety yak, don't talk back

Don't you give me no dirty looks
your father's hip he knows what cooks
just tell your hoodlum friend outside
you ain't got time to take a ride
Yakety yak, don't talk back
Yakety yak, Yakety yak, Yakety yak, Yakety yak
Yakety yak, Yakety yak, Yakety yak, Yakety yak
