Hi Ho Silver - Lyrics by Fleetwood Mac


Lyrics

Written by thomas fats waller and ed kirkeby.


Come in this house
Stop all of that yakety yak
Come in this house woman
Stop all of your yakety yak
A stop your yakin' woman
You're nothing but an alley cat

You talk all day
You talk about this and that
You talk all day woman
You're talkin' 'bout this and that
Don't make me nervous
I'm holding a baseball bat
A honey hush-you're talking to me
A honey hush-you're talking to
I'm gonna warn you honey
I'm takin' no more of this stuff

Well hi ho-a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho, hi ho silver tonight keeping it up
Talkin' 'bout this and that
You come on in here woman
Talkin' 'bout this and that
Don't make me nervous
I'm holding a baseball bat

A honey hush
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
You're talking too
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
Honey, honey, honey, honey hush
(honey, honey, honey, honey, honey)
You're talkin' too
Stop that yakin', i'm taking no more of your stuff
Oh hi ho-a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi-ho silver
Hi-ho,a-hi ho silver
Hi-ho silver-hi ho silver again
