haha yeah that’s actually by design, really, i mean the song is meant to be unintelligible and there aren’t any official lyrics to the song. the “lyrics” change each time it’s performed, and it’s really more about mood and melody than anything else, and in that sense i think it’s a really, really perfect song.
i still remember the first time i heard yellow ledbetter, how incredible and beautiful it sounded and how i couldn’t figure out a single thing he was saying. i was in love.
