Yo by Atz Kilcher As sung by Jewel and Atz Kilcher Transcribed by Michelle Thomas * Jewel and Atz together A little yodeling song for my man Yo And I know that Yo don't know That I wrote this song a late one night He'd heard me yodeling down at Hobo Gin's And we were hanging out at the Putter Inn He was beggin me to yodel And Oh Yo he wasn't half the type He held out his hand I said "What's your name?" And he said "Yo" So I asked him again And he said "Yo" again So I figured it must be his name Well I was having some perculiar thoughts But you can't say much with a name like Atz So I settled back Tried to figure out Yo-yo's game Now Yo was sailin three sheets of the wind With a frozen stare And an ear-to-ear grin He kept beggin me to yodel, sayin "G-gget up there and yodel with the band" It was my good friend Rod with a hired gun So I stepped up to have a little bit of fun With the lead, and the bass and the drummer and the rhythm man Now Yo he staggered right up to the stage He had this angelic smile on his face That sucker looked like he floated up to heaven and he died While I never had a fan quite like Yo before He stood there mesmerized on the floor He started stompin and clappin when he heard my yodeling cry (chorus) And I said *Yo This yodeling song's for you No matter where you go No matter what you do Remember that time spent yodeling's time well spent I've never had myself a fan club before But Yo don't you know that one thing's for sure If I do I'll make you my fan club president And I said *(Yodel) Well when I got through I said "There you go Yo" And he was still smiling but his eyes were still closed And I thought I was going to get away from him But then he opened them wide and said "I-II want to hear some more" Well I was wearing out my welcome and I was running out of time But I decided that I'd yodel up another line Cause I thought it was the only way I could get Yo off the floor Then I got to thinking I realized Suddenly I realized Why old Yo liked yodeling Because everytime I yodeled I was saying Yo's name Well then I got to thinking it probably wouldn't work too well In fact it downright sounds like hell If you ever try to yodel using anybody elses name Try Inga *Inga-lay (etc.) See what I mean It just doesn't work So In this whole wide world No matter where I go One thing I've learned I've finally know I'll never yodel again if there's anyone in the audience named Yo And I said *Yo This yodeling song's for you No matter where you go No matter what you do Remember that time spent yodeling's time well spent I've never had myself a fan club before But Yo don't you know that one thing's for sure If I do I'll make you my fan club president And I said *(Yodel) (long yodel)
