"Yodel" lyrics - NELLIE MCKAY


Standin in the break of a yawn
Where you done left me alone
There's nothin' happenin' to hide
Sittin' in the shade of the lawn
As everybody goes home
There's nothin' left here to find

Standin with my back to the wall
Mindin the sky as it's fallin' all around me
Listenin for a break in the rain
For it's not drownin my pain

Standin in the shade of a yard
Where everybody works hard
And everybody is dyin'
Walkin' to the temple of art
Where I'm found out as a fraud
And there's nobody who's buyin
