Ambling Alp
Yeasayer Lyrics


Now kid I know I haven't been a perfect man
And I've avoided doing things I know I can
But if I've learned one thing to tattoo on my arm
Or burn into my thumb it would be that

You must stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Oh Max Schmeling was a formidable foe
The Ambling Alp was too at least that's what I'm told
But if you learn one thing you've learned it well
In June you must give fascists hell
They'll run but they can't hide

You must stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done

And when those thunder clouds are cryin'
(In the skies, in the skies)
And when those fireflies keep shining,
(In your eyes, in your eyes)
Keep your mind on the time,
With your ass on the line,
Keep your fleet feet sliding
(Side, to the side)

Now the world can be an unfair place at times
But your lows will have their compliment of highs
And if anyone should cheat you
Take advantage of or beat you raise your head
And wear your wounds with pride

You must stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done
Stick up for yourself son
Never mind what anybody else done

This is the perfect balance between indie pop, experimental rock, & psychedelic pop.

If there’s one band that knows how to write "bizzare" songs that are equally catchy, it is Yeasayer. I absolutely love the way the track goes into an almost Reggae groove in the chorus. Also, if you ever have the chance to see these guys live, do it. It’s worth every minute of your time. #punkflop #TrackDrops #yeasayer https://trackdrops.com/2016/04/28/yeasayer-ambling-alp/

I'd never heard of them before I saw them live at a festival about 5 years ago. Imagine my joy!

Fell in love with this song when I heard it on a friend's iPod, then actually listened to it and found out it was about boxing... more importantly Joe Louis...and now I respect it even more
