[Mixx scratches "Yakety Yak"]

[Brother Marquis:]

When you're told to do something by your mom and dad

Don't frown in their face or get mad

Because as long as you're livin' under their roof

You better mind your mouth, or get Dad's boot

It's the simples thing that they ask of you

Like mow the lawn and take the trash out too

But it always never seems to get done, so ...


Take out the papers and the trash

Or you don't get no spendin' cash

You better wax that kitchen flo'

Or you ain't rock 'n rollin' no mo'!

Yakety Yak! (Don't talk back!)

Ha haaa!

[Fresh Kid Ice:]

Don't touch that phone when it rings

You're under restriction 'till your room is cleaned

It'll take away your spending cash

You better have it cleaned, quick and fast

Dust the furniture, have the floor waxed

It gotta be spotless from front to back

You might as well get off your butt and ...

[Mr. Mixx:]

Just finish cleanin' up your room

Let's see that 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!)

Don't you roll yo' eyes at me, boy!

[Brother Marquis:]

This house is dirty, it's a total mess

No need to be rude, so don't get dressed

There's a lot of things that have to be done

If you don't, then you have no fun

Now pack the basket with those dirty clothes

And go to the laundromat before it closes

There's no need to pout or frown around, so ...


You just put on your coat and hat

And walk yourself to the laundry-mat

And when you're finished doing that

Bring in the dog and put out the cat

Yakety Yak! (Don't talk back!)

[Mixx scratches "Take out the papers and the trash" and "Breakdown!"]

[Fresh Kid Ice:]

Behind your dad's back, you roll your eyes

Always plottin' and schemin' and plannin' lies

But you're always doin' things to make him mad

Instead of doin' right for good old dad

So tell your friend you're not hangin' out

Just do as I say, 'cause I'm the man of the house

You better act like you got some sense and ...

[Mr. Mixx:]

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!)

What you say to me boy?
