Da Yoopers – Yooper Talk lyrics

1. I was born in A blizzard in A willy's jeep
The you. P. Blood in my veins runs deep
But I moved down here back in ‘65
Cause the mine closed down and I had to survive
Working in the city with A million lights
Giving ‘Er tarpaper day and night
The foreman says I’M A working fool
Cause I earn my pay and don’T break no rules
Chorus:
If I didn’T need the work I wouldn’T be here
I’D be back home on the last frontier
Getting me some of that culture shock
Listening to some yooper talk

2. Cruising in the chevy through the cool green pines
On A beat up highway with shot up signs
Eating A pasty out at aho’S camp
Playing 15-2 by the kerosene lamp
Throwing some shoes with the other guys
Shooting the breeze and just swatting flies
Getting all lit up on that six point beer
Cruising the back roads and shining deer

If I didn’T need the work I wouldn’T be here
I’D be back home on the last frontier
Getting me some of that culture shock
Listening to some yooper talk

    This song is about real culture in the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) of Michigan. Da Yoopers accent is authentic, although most yoopers don't have such a strong accent. If you like their music you should check out Da Yooper Tourist Trap in Ishpeming. There's lots to see and do in the U.P especially if you like the wilderness.
