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)
