The Skin of My Yellow Country Teeth
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah Lyrics


Once the dogs have quit their barking
Son, my neighbour said to me
Know the emptiness of talking blue the same old sheep
Run, I'll do no more this walking
Haunted by a past I just can't see anymore
Anymore

But let me tell you I never planned
To let go of the hand that has been
Clinging by its thick country skin
To my yellow country teeth
To my yellow country teeth

Far, far away from West Virginia
I will try on New York City
Explaining that the sky holds the wind
The sun rushes in
A child with a shotgun can shoot down honeybees that sting
Oh this boy could use a little sting
All right

Who will get me to a party
Who do I have yet to meet
You, you look a bit like coffee
And you taste a little like me
How can I keep from moving
Now I need a change of scenery
Just listen to me
I won't pretend to understand the movement of the wind
Or the waves in the ocean
Or how like the hours I change softly slowly
Plainly blindly oh me oh my

LYRICS:

Once - The dogs have quit their barking
"Son," - my neighbor said to me.
"Know the emptiness of talking blue
the same old sheep."
Run - I'll do no more this walking
Haunted by a past I just can't see
Anymore
Anymore

But let me tell you I have never planned
To let go of the hand that has been
Clinging by its thick country skin
To my yellow country teeth

Far - Far away from West Virginia
I - Will try on New York City
Explaining that the sky holds the
Wind the sun rushes in and a child
With a shotgun can shoot down
Honeybees that sting
BUT THIS BOY COULD USE A LITTLE STING!

Who - Will get me to a party?
Who - Do I have yet to meet?
You - You look a bit like coffee
And you taste a bit like me
How - Can I keep me from moving?
Now - I need a change of scenery
Just listen to me I won't pretend to
Understand the movement of the wind
Or the waves out in the ocean or how
Like the hours I change softly slowly
Plainly blindly oh me oh my!

Me and my mate came up on the wonderful acid that was all over the Latitude Festival, when these misfits came on stage.

They all looked like they were on the smae buzz! The poor keyboard player kept looking around at his band mates with a look of helplessness - but also giggling in that pure state of trippy happyness. ...He definitely had to be Squad Leader for that set! lol

Me and my mate, having never heard the band before couldn't decide if the singer was just smashed to bits on Latitude acid or "Is that how he sings?!"

Never laughed so much and enjoyed hearing a band for the first time!!!

Such a fucking feeling of happiness hearing this after so long.

Once the dogs have quit their barking
"Son," my neighbor said to me
"Know the emptiness is talking blue
The same old sheep"
Run, I'll do no more of the talking
Haunted by a past I just can't see
Anymore, anymore
But let me tell you I have never planned
To let go of the hand that has been
Clinging by its thick country skin
To my yellow country teeth

Far far away from West Virginia
I'll try on New York City
Explaining that the sky holds the wind
The sun rushes in
And a child with a shotgun
Can shoot down honeybees that sting
OH THIS BOY COULD USE A LITTLE STING! ALRIGHT!

Who will get me to a party?
Who do I have yet to meet?
You, you look a bit like coffee
And you taste a little like tea
How can I keep me from moving?
Now I need a change of scenery
Just listen to me I won't pretend
To understand the movement of the wind
Or the waves out in the ocean
Or how like the hours I change
Softly slowly plainly blindly
Oh me oh my!

Once - The dogs have quit their barking
"Son," - my neighbor said to me.
"Know the emptiness of talking to
the same old sheep."
Run - I'll do no more this walking
Haunted by a past I just can't see
Anymore
Anymore

But let me tell you I have a plan
To let go of the hand that has been
Clinging by its thick country skin
To my yellow country teeth
To my yellow country teeth

Far - Far away from West Virginia
I - Will try on New York City
Explaining that the sky holds the
Wind the sun rushes in and a child
With a shotgun can shoot down
Honeybees that sting
BUT THIS BOY COULD USE A LITTLE STING!
Alright

Who - Will get me to a party?
Who - Do I have yet to meet?
You - You look a bit like coffee
And you taste a bit like me
How - Can I keep me from moving?
Now - I need a change of scenery
Just listen to me I won't pretend to
Understand the movement of the wind
Or the waves out in the ocean or how
Like the hours I change softly slowly
Plainly blindly oh me oh my!

Same reason why I love Luke Jenner's voice. They're voices sound similar.
