Hell Yeah

from by Vanessa Boyd

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Unkept Woman comes with a fold-out insert panel with all the lyrics on it. The artwork is all inspired by the crossover between life in Morocco, where most of the album was written, and Tennessee, where it was recorded.

    While riding through the Sahara Desert on a camel, we crossed a dune and there, cocky as if he was born there, was a solitary rooster puttering around the sand. I took a photo which is completely blurry, with the movement of the camel and all, but when I got home I took a picture of my mother's rooster in his stead. This became the cover. The 3-panel spread is a collage of all the musicians who were an integral part of the record.

    This CD was manufactured & printed in the US by Cravedog with a glass master for high quality.

    Also includes immediate download of 14-track album in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

lyrics

hell yeah
today a check came in the mail and i said to myself, hell yeah : i’m working every day, every day, every day, for an hourly wage, it’s a shame the way i bust my ass to make a bill, just to pay another bill : i do what i have to, i do what i have to, i do what i got to do, i do what i got to do, i do what i want to, hell yeah : today i worked on my car turned the key and it started, hell yeah : i’m driving every day across the city, from point a to b, point a to b, but i know i’m free to leave at will, flee to country, forget about money : chorus : today i got a new job to look forward to, hell yeah : i’m moving overseas to a new country, finally, finally, and i know how lonely a new place can be, but i need a change of scene, challenge reality
