She Taught Me How To Yodel

Album: I Remember You (1962)
  • I went across to Switzerland
    Where all the Yodellers be
    To try to learn to yodel
    With my yodel-oh-ee-dee
    I climbed a big high mountain
    On a clear and sunny day
    And met a yodellin' gal
    Up in a little Swiss chalet

    She taught me to yodel
    Yodel-oh-ee-dee
    Diddly-odel-oh-ee-dee
    Diddly-odel-oh-ee-dee
    She taught me to yodel
    Yodel-oh-ee-dee-ay-dee
    Yodel-oh-ee-dee-yodel-oh-dee

    [more yodelling]

    Well now I'm gonna teach you
    How to yodel just like me
    It's easy when you're singin'
    To go yodel-diddly-oh-oh-dee
    First you take a deep breath
    Then it's K.O. one, two, three
    And then you'll hear a yodel
    If you listen close to me

    Yeah, this is how to yodel
    Yodel-oh-ee-dee
    Diddly-odel-oh-ee-dee
    Diddly-odel-oh-ee-dee
    This is how to yodel
    Yodel-oh-ee-dee
    Diddly-odel-oh-ee-dee-yodel-oh-dee Writer/s: ESTHER VAN SCIVER, PAUL ROBERTS, TOM EMERSON
