Mary-kate & Ashley Olsen – 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 cleanin' up your room
Let's see the 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 you coast 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.


Don't you give me no dirty looks
Your father's stiff, 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.
Talkity talk. Talkity talk.
Sqawkity sqwak. Sqawkity sqawk.
