Y is for: Yabba Dabba Doo!

                                  
How does Fred’s catchphrase grab you? Conveys warm and fuzzy memories to me, it does.  Hope it brings at least a smile to you!  Beats “I’m excited”  by a thousand miles, doesn’t it?  I’ve always dreamt of sliding down my diplodocus’ neck at quitting time!  I ain't no yellow belly!

And how about…. Yakety Yakhttp://youtu.be/-cHB3Rbz1OI 
Yes,  Peanut Gallery!   The song where you reply:   “Don’t talk back!” 
I know, I know, they don’t make songs like that anymore!  – me says, and that's a sad thing.   I’ve always loved songs with a message, a fun message like this one!  I'm sure  you can bring a horse to water
but can you make it drink?   
I don’t know, ask the teenager who listened to the song!  Did he do his chores?  You’ve never had it so good, I say, having someone sing you your duties rather than yell them out.   
Yakety yak and yada yada  go hand in hand... I can just see the eyes rolling! 

Today was brought to us courtesy of the letter “Y”.  Yesssssss!  She  loves you Ya, Ya, Ya ♫♪

Better Be a Little “S” than a Little Less.

  3. As you may remember, even in the french version of The Flintstones, they kept "Yabba Dabba Doo" as it was; they didn't try to translate it! It's universal!!!
    Good post!!!

  5. Ah Yakety yak, another good crazy song like walawalabingbang. It's sad that humor doesn't have a good place in music like it used too!
