Yeah Yeah
Cyndi Lauper Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Through the burning sun
And the driving rain
Over the sea
Across the plain
I'll ask you once
I'll ask you again
Won't you be my love
Won't you be my friend

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

The lights are low
The hour is late
Don't you want me baby
Through your garden gate
Don't you feel it coming
And it feels so strong
I will never ever
Ever do you wrong

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Now the mountain is high
The river is deep
We always knew
We hold the key
Roses red
Violets blue
Love you baby
Till I'm dead

Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah




Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
