"You Yes You" as written by Merrill Martin Garbus and Nathaniel J Brenner....
Now that everything is gonna be okay
Now that everything is gonna be alright
What if baby I cannot see the sound?
What if baby I cannot hear the light?

Now that everything is gonna be okay
Now that everything is gonna be alright
What if baby I cannot see the sound?
What if baby I cannot hear the light?

What's that about?
What's that about?

What's that about?
What's that about?

Now that everything is gonna be okay
Now that everything is gonna be alright
What if baby I cannot see the sound?
What if baby I cannot hear the light?

Now that everything is gonna be okay
Now that everything is gonna be alright
What if baby I cannot see the sound?
What if baby I cannot hear the light?

I was born to do it
My daddy had enough so I put my back into it
That man was born to do it too
We didn't have enough so we cannot sing for you, ha

If home is where the heart is baby
Then my home is inside you
I don't need a linen room of diamonds
Yeah a chicken shed will do

If home is where the heart is baby
Then my home is inside you
I don't need a linen room of diamonds
Yeah a chicken shed will do do do do

I was born to do it
My daddy had enough so I put my back into it
That man was born to do it too
We didn't have enough so we can ah
I was born to do it
My daddy had enough so I put my back in
Th-th-that man was born to do it too
We didn't have enough so we cannot sing for you, ha

Throw your money on the ground and leave it there
You, yes, you
Now that everything is gonna be okay

    My goodness I love that line. We could live in absolute squalor, but as long as I was with you, I wouldn't mind. Beautiful. Ms. Garbus is amazingly talented.

    My InterpretationI think the lyrics actually go:

    "I was born to do it
    My daddy had enough so I put my back into it
    That man was born to do it too
    He didn’t have enough so he cannot sing for you"

    Which makes more sense to me. It's about how some people come from backgrounds where they are privileged enough pursue their dreams (in this case singing) but some people don't have that as an option. Even if they were born with the talent and the potential.
