The Tender Yodeller





Mixed my drinks to see if it was true

that a kid could drive the porcelain 

bus through the night.

Well, he can.


Dee-yodle-eedle-odle-lay-hee

A-yeedle-odle-lay-hee

Hooo.


I done Connie Cooney on the roundabout

to see if I would barf.

Oh man, did we go round

and round.


Dee-yodle-eedle-odle-lay-hee

A-yeedle-odle-lay-hee

Hooo.


I stuck my fingers down to my tonsils 

to see if I could touch ‘em.

It was the damnedest thing.

Never again.


Dee-yodle-eedle-odle-lay-hee

A-yeedle-odle-lay-hee

A-yeedle-odle-lay-hee

Hooo.
