"Ye Yo" as written by and Erica Wright....
Ye yo, ye yo, ye yo, ye yo
(Help me)
Ye yo, ye yo, ye yo, ye yo...

Sometimes,
Sometimes I get so lonely, lonely, lonely
I feel all by myself up here
That's when I take a minute
To re-evaluate things
All of the things I think are special
Oooh like
When you wake up in the morning
And you see the morning sun
And you need to know the world is on your side
Who do you run to
Who can you turn to
Come on
Then the evening comes to greet you
You need someone to hold you close
And you feel you need to rest your aching mind
Who can you run to
Who can you turn to
Well see the sun's in the east and the moon reflects
Like the knowledge and wisdom, I manifest
If you want to go to heaven lay up on my breast
I'm ye yo, you're ye yo
I say the sun's in the east and the moon reflects
Like the knowledge and wisdom, I manifest
If you want to go to heaven lay up on my breast
I'm ye yo, you're ye yo
Ye yo, ye yo, ye yo.....

    General CommentThe start of the song is an obvious ploy to make her seem relatable to the listener. She likes to do this quite a bit, like in the live soul stage performance of honey she says something similar about us, the listeners, being reflections of her gift.

    The main message of the song however seems to be about how we all have a certain need for a maternal figure or presence within our life.

    The first part of the song after the spoken word section seems to be about her personal longing for a mother sometimes, "who do you run to? Who can you run to? (hey ye yo)"... The part after this she seems to change into the yeyo "I'm yeyo".
    Pretty obvious meaning.
