Yakety Yak
Sha Na Na Lyrics


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 and roll no more
Yakety yak (don't talk back)

Just finish cleaning up your room
Let's see that dust fly with that broom
Get all that garbage out of sight
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

I watched this broadcast in May 1973. The guy playing the sax in this performance is my favourite.

@Wesley Cook it's looks wonderful weather Woodstock before Donny Boaz before I was looking for something like that 1970 I just let you know that we have a great time years before

Sadly Lennie is no longer with us. Five of the group had musical training. Bowser, Denny Greene, Johnny Contralto, The Captain and Lennie. The other guys were also good singers. This band pulled out all the stops when doing their music. They also did their own choreography with a little help from Toni Basil. We didn't really start getting the show around here until 1976. Every Saturday afternoon. But they did run them all in sequence.

I can't believe Bowzer didn't say "Don't talk back!" Johnny's voice isn't a bass voice, but I still love him anyway!

Steve Blaufeder

Epic. Absolutely epic.

Jim Rosendahl

Nice work on. On the saxophone I know a gentleman that toured with the holsters for about 12 year one hell of a player Del push pusher
