(Verse 1)
She said she was lookin' for a cowboy.
She asked me if I could play that part.
She said, "If you're gonna play it, Play it now boy."
And I decided to start,

(Chorus)
Singin' Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi Yo. Yippie Yi, Yippie Ki Yi, Yippie Yi Yo oo-oo-oo.

(Verse 2)
She said she was havin' a sweet dream,
But then woke up with a broken hear-art.
She said, "If you're gonna meet me, Meet me halfway."
I said, "I met ya halfway from the start."

(Bridge)
We drove those doggies out of Texas.
She swore she'd pay me in Santa Fe.
She said, "Is it a problem, us bein' o-pposite sexes?"
I told 'er, "We'll find out on the way,
Singin' Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi Yo.
Yippie Yi, Yippie Ki Yi, Yippie Yi Yo-oo-oo-oo.

(Verse 3)
And then it just seems we drifted a-par-art. I wondered if I'd ever, See her a-gain.
I wondered if she knew, She took my hear-art.
And then, one day in Sacramento,
She stepped out of a van,
Singin' Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi, Yippie Yi Yo.
Yippie Yi, Yippie Ki Yi, Yippie Yi Yo oo-oo-oo.
We drove those doggies:

I wrote "Yippee Yi Yo" after seeing actress Glenn Close in "Mazzy."

Her character is an actress who finally gets a movie role and says, "They've got a cowboy to train me and everything."

I went out back of my brother's house in Portsmouth, Ohio, where we'd been watching it and sat in the southern Ohio night and wrote it.
