The Coasters – Yakety Yak 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 laundry mat
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 friends 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
