Come into this house and stop that yakety yak
Come into this house and stop that yakety yak
'Cause your sugar-daddy don't want no talkin' back

You keep on jabberin', talkin' 'bout this and that
You keep on jabberin', talkin' 'bout this and that
I got news for ya baby, you ain't nothin' but an alley cat

Turn off the waterworks baby, they don't move me no more
Turn off the waterworks baby, they don't move me no more
I'm leavin' this town, ain't comin' back no more
Honey hush

Come into this house and stop that yakety yak
Come into this house and stop that yakety yak
You're makin' me nervous and I'm holdin' a baseball bat

Hi-ho, hi-ho silver
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver
Hi-ho, hi-ho silver away
