Lyrics

YES, THERE WAS

Written By: Randy, Gregg, Yom & Den


D-D-D-D-D-D-D, D-D-D-D-D-D-D
How can you perfect something, how can you perfect something

How can you perfect something, when it hasn’t even been written?
(How can you perfect something - )
How can you perfect something, when it hasn’t even been written?
(- when it hasn’t even been written)
How can you perfect something, when it hasn’t even been written?
(- when it hasn’t even been written)

There were hipsters an’ dippers an’ zippers an’ kippers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
There were hipsters an’ dippers an’ zippers an’ kippers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
Yes, there was – yes, there was
(Well, the tambourine was in the way there)

Why do I think this is stupid?
Why do I think this part, ridiculous?
(throat cleared)

There were liars an’ criers an’ tryers an’ sighers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
There were liars an’ criers an’ tryers an’ sighers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
Yes, there was – yes, there was

And here’s the stupid part again
It goes to G and back to C
And suddenly D-D-D-D-D-D-D

There were mobsters an’ lobsters an’ sobsters an’ jobsters
Yes, there was
There was mobsters an’ lobsters an’ sobsters an’ jobsters
Yes, there was
Yes, there was – yes, there was
(instrumental)

… it’s so real)
There were cool cats, cold cuts, kookoos, koolaid
There were kalimbas, Columbos, la bambas, curmudgeons
And we had it made – yes, we did
And yes, there was
Yes, we did and that’s the buzz
Yes, there was

There were hookers an’ squawkers an’ talkers an’ walkers
Yes, there was
There was hawkers an’ squawkers an’ talkers an’ walkers
Yes, there was
Yes, there was – yes, there was

Back to this stupid part again
It goes to G and back to C
And suddenly D-D-D-D-D-D-D

There were slimers an’ climbers an’ nickels‘n dimers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
There’s slimers an’ climbers an’ nickels‘n dimers
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
Yes, there was (yes, there was)
Yes, there was (yes, there was)

D-D-D-D-D-D-D
HELLO?!
Yes, there was – yes, there was (repeat 6x with groans)
