as recorded by Ella Fitzgerald
Very far away in a foreign land
Lives a yellow woman and a yellow man;
He's been around for many a year,
They say they were there 'fore we were here!
Eatin' rice all day
While the children play,
You see he believes
In a family,
Just like you and me,
You ol' yellow man, yellow man;
You know we understand!
Keeps his money tight in his hand,
With his yellow woman, he's a yellow man!
You've gotta have a yellow woman
When you're a yellow man!
