Yakety Yak (Take It Back)

Yakety Yak (Take It Back)
(Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller)

Pick out the paper from the trash
For cans and bottles you get cash
We’d better just recycle or
We’re not gonna rock n roll no more
Yakety Yak – Take It Back!

Don’t be square don’t be no chump
Don’t make this earth a garbage dump
This planet’s screamin no more funk
There’s no more room for no more junk
Yakety Yak – Take it Back!

Yakety Yak – Take it Back!
Take it all, Take it all, Take it all, Take it Back (Repeat 4x)

Kids you don’t have to go to school
To teach your folks this simple rule
If it’s a drink or just a snack
When it’s empty take it back
Yakety Yak – Take it Back!

Yakety Yak – Take it Back!
Take it all, Take it all, Take it all, Take it Back (Repeat 4x)

Who says you can’t fight city hall
Just write a letter make a call
Sign a petition and what’s more
Make em get it at your door
Yakety Yak – Take it Back!

Yakety Yak – Take it Back!
Take it all, Take it all, Take it all, Take it Back (Repeat 4x)
