yada yada la scala
from ON MY WAY TO WHERE
by Dory Previn
yada yada la scala  
yada yada yada yada yada  
letís stop talking talking talking  
wasting precious time  
just a lot of empty noise  
that isnít worth a dime  
words of wonder  
words of whether  
should we shouldnít we  
be togehter  
yada yada yada yada yada  
letís stop talking talking talking  
taking up our lives  
saying things that donít make sense  
hoping help arrives  
curse my questions  
dams your qualms  
tomorrow they could be  
dropping bombs  
and we go yada yada yada yada yada 
so we sit
at a restaurant table  
discussing reasons  
weíre unable to commit  
thatís not it  
all i want  
is to please and enjoy you  
what makes you think  
iíll be out to destroy you  
if you commit  
thatís not it  
is it something you sense  
underneath my defenses  
that makes me a threat  
thatís not it  
and yet  
suppose thatís it?  
ow wow wow  
i donít want to  
think about that now
letís stop talking talking talking  
every lame excuse  
justifying alibying  
listen whatís the use  
the sparrow chirps  
the chipmunk chatters  
and we go on as mad as a hatter  
and nothing at all gets said  
talk to me please  
in bed  
where it matters  
yada yada yada yada yada
