Morning after morning after morning, it's a battle to the finish line and the young man usually wins out and......it' the same old story daily.

Story Behind the Song

Every kid who ever wanted to deliver newspapers can relate to this ditty!

Lyrics

THE PAPER BOY
Words & Music by Cliff Darby

V.1) WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND STILL IN SCHOOL
AND CREWCUTS WERE THE FAD
I GOT MYSELF A PAPER ROUTE, FIRST JOB I EVER HAD
I SAVED AND BOUGHT A BIG RED BIKE
FROM THE WESTERN AUTO STORE
AND WHEN THAT SCHOOL BELL RANG FOR GOOD
I WAS RUNNIN' OUT THE DOOR

V.2) IN CUT OFF SHORTS AND ONE SKIN'T KNEE
I'D PEDAL AS I THREW
THOSE LITTLE GRIT NEWSPAPERS,
ALL ALONG THE AVENUE
THOSE OTHER BOYS COULD WHISTLE
AS THEY TOSSED THEM ON THE LAWN
BUT, I NEVER COULD, QUITE WHISTLE GOOD
SO, I SANG THIS YODELING SONG.

C.) YODELING

V.3) WELL NATURALLY IT CAUSED A STIR
EACH TIME WHEN I'D DO THIS
AND FIGHTIN' OFF THE JOHNSON'S DOG
IS SOMETHING I DON'T MISS
WELL EVERY NOW AND THEN SOMEONE
WOULD SAY, "HEY BOY, DON'T QUIT,
'CAUSE THAT LITTLE YODELING SONG YOU SING
WILL SOMEDAY BE A HIT!"

V.4) NOW SINCE THE YEARS HAVE COME AND GONE
I WONDER IF THEY MISS AT ALL
THAT LITTLE YODELING PAPER BOY
WHOSE NAME THEY CAN'T RECALL
AND TO THIS DAY I NEVER DREAMED
WHAT THEY SAID WOULD COME TRUE
WHEN FOLKS WOULD COME FROM MILES AROUND
TO HEAR ME YOD-EL-LAY-DEE-HOOOOO!!!!

C.) REPEAT YODELING, FAST VERSION, END.
