JAW, JAW, YAP, YAP, YAP! (Esther Van Scriver / Shelby Darnell / Bob Miller) Loy Gordon & His Buckeye Buddies - 1949 Texas Jim Robertson & The Panhandle Punchers - 1950 A man is a fool from the day he's born And it lasts until he dies There's always a woman with wiles and snares He can never escape, though he tries She'll blink her eyes like a moonstruck cow And wiggle herself at hearts And before he knows it, he's a married man And then his trouble starts Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman's tongue is the devil When it's hung in the middle and wags both ends Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman can drive a good man nuts With her jaw and a yap-yap-yap (Instrumental Break) He walks to the altar with a smile on his face And meekly says, "I do" And a knot is tied, but it's around his neck It's a knot he can't undo A lyin' kiss and a week of bliss And the sucker is doomed for life He finds he's married to a chatterbox Instead of a lovin' wife Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman's tongue is a devil When it's hung in the middle and wags both ends Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman can drive a good man nuts With her jaw and her yap-yap-yap (Instrumental Break) There must be a place in the sweet by and by Where a man can eventually go Where a woman will only be allowed two words A respectful "yes" or "no" Oh, in that beautiful place where a man is the boss And his spirit can soar and sing He can do as he pleases and never hear a yap Oh death, where is thy sting Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman's tongue is a devil When it's hung in the middle and wags both ends Jaw-jaw, jaw-jaw-jaw, yap-yap-yap-yap-yap A woman can drive a good man nuts With her jaw and her yap-yap-yap (Transcribed by Mel Priddle -April 2017)
