03/06/20 - NNHS Newsletter - Yakety Yak

Sometimes when I'm talking, my words can't keep up
with my thoughts. I wonder why we think faster
than we speak. Probably so we can think twice
.”

- Bill Watterson
(b. 05 July 1958)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   This silly song makes me smile - and it always has!

BONUS - Yakety Yak - The Coasters


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakety_Yak:

"Yakety Yak" is a song written, produced, and arranged by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller for The Coasters and released on Atlantic Records in 1958, spending seven weeks as #1 on the R&B charts and a week as number one on the Hot 100 pop list.[1] This song was one of a string of singles released by The Coasters between 1957 and 1959 that dominated the charts, one of the biggest performing acts of the rock and roll era.[2]

The song is a "playlet," a word Stoller used for the glimpses into teenage life that characterized the songs Leiber and Stoller wrote and produced.[3] The lyrics describe the listing of household chores to a kid, presumably a teenager, the teenager's response ("yakety yak") and the parents' retort ("don't talk back") — an experience very familiar to a middle-class teenager of the day. Leiber has said the Coasters portrayed "a white kid’s view of a black person’s conception of white society."[2] The serio-comic street-smart “playlets” etched out by the songwriters were sung by the Coasters with a sly clowning humor, while the screaming saxophone of King Curtis filled in hot, honking bursts in the up-tempo doo-wop style. The group was openly theatrical in style—they were not pretending to be expressing their own experience.[4]

The threatened punishment for not taking out the garbage and sweeping the floor is, in the song's humorous lyrics:[5]

"You ain't gonna rock and roll no more,"

And the refrain is:

"Yakety yak; don't talk back."

From My Friend, Roshana, of NC (now of TX) - 03/06/15:

“Patience is tied very closely to faith in our Heavenly Father. Actually, when we are unduly impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His. We can grow in faith only if we are willing to wait patiently for God's purposes and patterns to unfold in our lives, on His timetable.”

- Neal A. Maxwell
(06 July 1926 - 21 July 2004

Thanks so much, Roshana!

Yakety Yak

Words and Music by: Jerry Leiber (25 Apr 1933 – 22 Aug 2011) and Mike Stoller (b. 13 Mar 1933)

Recorded by
The Coasters, 1958


Take out the papers and the trash
Or you don't get no spendin' 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 cleanin' 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 doin' that
Bring in the dog and put out the cat
Yakety yak (don't talk back)

<chiefly sax instrumental>

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

FADE
Yakety yak, yakety yak
