  • Every evening, when all my day's work is through
    I call my baby, and ask him what shall we do
    I mention movies, but he don't seem to dig that
    And then he asks me, why don't I come to his flat
    And have some supper and let the evening pass by
    By playing records besides a groovy hi-fi
    I say yeh yeh, and that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    My baby loves me, she gets a feeling so fine
    And when she love me, she makes me know that she's mine
    And when she kisses, I feel the fire get hot
    She never misses, she gives it all that she's got
    And when she asks me if everything is okay
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    We'll play a melody and
    Turn the lights down low so that none can see
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    And there'll be no one else alive
    In all the world 'cept you and me
    Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh
    Yeh yeh, yeh yeh

    Pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
    Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
    But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
    I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
    Don't need to ask me if everything is OK
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh

    We'll play a melody and
    Turn the lights down low so that none can see
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    We gotta do that, we gotta do that
    And there'll be no one else alive
    In all the world 'cept you and me
    Yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh, yeh yeh, yeh yeh

    Oh pretty baby, I never knew such a thrill
    Just thought I'd tell you, because I'm trembling still
    But pretty baby, I want you all for my own
    I think I'm ready to leave those others alone
    Don't need to ask me if everything is okay
    I got my answer, the only thing I can say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh, that's what I say
    I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, I say yeh yeh
    That's what I say, yeah Writer/s: Jon Hendricks, Pat Patrick, RODGERS GRANT, Rodgers Lee Grant

  • Mavis from Upper Great LakesLoved that this was featured in “The Queen’s Gambit.”
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 30th 1965, Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames performed "Yeh, Yeh" on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'...
    Ten months earlier on February 7th it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on March 21st, 1965 it peaked at #21 (for 1 week) and spent 8 weeks on the Top 100...
    And on January 14th, 1965 it reached #1 (for 2 weeks) on the United Kingdom Singles chart...
    It was first recorded by Mongo Santamaría and appeared on 1963 album 'Watermelon Man'...
    R.I.P. Jimmy O'Neill (Shindig's host, 1940 - 2013) and Mr. Fame, born Clive Powell, will celebrated his 71st birthday come next June 26th.
  • Daevid from Glendale, CaOh----i forgot to mention...the sax solo is the Best part!
  • Daevid from Glendale, CaI LOVE this song! it's got that great "beatnik" groove to it.
  • Bob from Southfield, MiWhen this song came out in 1965, I recall that his group was titled, "The Blue Flames".
  • Kevin from Syracuse, UtI heard Georgie Fame perform this in a small 18th Century theater in Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire, England, in 1987. It was a charity benefit concert and I had a front row seat. Most of the set was just Georgie Fame playing a well-worn Fender electric piano and singing. I will tell you, he put on a great show. He is an amazing musician.
  • Frank from Westminster, ScAny truth to the rumor that after this song, he changed his name to Georgie Obscurity?
