Madisen Ward & The Mama Bear – Yellow Taxi Lyrics

I was resting again
The leaves were restless again
They’re my only friends
No matter where they’ve been
I just need a place to sleep
A place to take me in

I’ve got a couple of songs
I play em on the corner at dawn
Whichever sidewalk I’m on
Until the people are gone
I just need a place to go
So I don’t sleep on the lawn

[Chorus]
Last night I slept in a big yellow taxi
My imagination told me I was in the back seat
Of course, that was a story I sung
Even though I had clothes, I froze
Even my jacket was cold

So flick a couple nickels my way
I will get the pecking away
A couple licks I can play
And now you’re fixing to pay
But everybody’s cheap
And now I’m sleeping in my taxi today

[Chorus]
Last night I slept in a big yellow taxi
My imagination told me I was in the back seat
Of course, that was a story I sung
Even though I had clothes, I froze
Even my jacket was cold

So maybe I should call it a night
Yes, I know I gave it a fight
But now my body is tight
Stuck in the city lights
I don’t want to go, but I know
Maybe my parents are right

[Chorus x2]
Last night I slept in a big yellow taxi
My imagination told me I was in the back seat
Of course, that was a story I sung
Even though I had clothes, I froze
Even my jacket was cold
