The Duck's Yas-Yas-Yas - Hokum Blues


"The Duck's Yas-Yas-Yas" or "The Duck's Yas Yas Yas" is a hokum jazz-blues song, originally recorded by James "Stump" Johnson, but the most well known version was recorded by Oliver Cobb and his Rhythm Kings.

The song is perhaps best known for the following lyrics:

"Mama bought a rooster

She thought it was a duck

She served it at the table with its legs straight up"
