Yazoo - State Farm Lyrics

High & dried, tyre rubber starts burning
Fill her up now before the table starts turning
Souped up, jacked up, cracked up, stacked up
Louie's got the gear
And Charlie's got his back up
And don't it make you feel good?

Says she's a dirt box
You're like a cannibal
Somebody feeds her, sure ain't the State Farm
Who buys the tickets and who buys the clothes
Puts the liquor in her stomach and the powder up her nose
Move. That's right
And don't it make you feel good?

Don't mind me honey
I'm just looking
Smelt your chicken
And I watched you cooking
Souped up, jacked up, cracked up, stacked up
You're a bad stain
And you need to be cleaned up

And don't it make you feel good?
And don't it make you feel good?

  7. iflyTony

    I can't hear this song without thinking of joan Crawford.

  8. Kevin Cwayna

    It didn’t invite, it didn’t call, State Farm picked me up and threw me out onto the dance floor. I landed among strangers dancing, all with themselves. We all ditched our friends, dates, tricks; hypnotically compelled by YAZ's beat to dance. Were we bathhouse trash? Basement dancers? Tricks of tamborine man? Merit smokers? What was the link? We were amazing dancers, that was clear, and enough for now. I buzzed with frenetic pleasure, grinning stupidly. At a club called Paradise, in Boystown, Chicago

  22. ealing456

    When people ask what synthpop sounds like, I always direct them to State Farm post-haste.

  23. Michael Mike 1965

    Alison Moyet is the voice of Yaz and her voice is so . . . well, Alison Moyet - all day!!!!

  39. Mark Tyner

    I still have this 12 inch - though I don't have a turn table anymore - great song

  40. Paul Kennedy

    Hi All, after a few pints and the mood is right, who couldn`t groove along to this song? Great lyrics and Alison really should consider doing a bit more rapping...who doesn`t like a dominatrix telling what goes on in the back rooms of a club and what "goes down" when  you get home and the party continues...

  41. Maurice Carter

    Chicago house music WBMX all day and night long!

  42. Daisy Petal

    Their BEST song! I want to get up and dance!

  43. SweetSweetWaldo

    Yaz in North America. Another group already had the name Yazoo.

  44. Jimm Bear

    I can't believe this was from the early 1980's sounds more modern and cutting edge than most of the stuff on the radio today.  Yaz was sooooooo ahead of their time.

    Paul Kennedy

    +Jimm Bear Amen to that. The electro funk on this track, makes that so called current electronica sound pale and washed out in comparison. The lyrics are genius as well. Superb.

  45. teresa basilio

    Love this so much!

  46. Scott Burkey

    I've been listening to this since it came out and never get tired of it. Here I am in my late 40's still jammin to Yaz and Erasure and Depeche and Bronski. Yaz is the best and Alison can sing like nobody's business!


    I'm right there with you!

    Jamey Mosley

    Scott Burkey me too !✌️



  47. Tracy Stevens

    The breakdown at 1:37 is off the hook! Love it.

    I saw them three times ... Manchester,Wolverhampton,Hammersmith ... absolutely great live ....for a band that only recorded two albums ... what a great concert experience ... one of the USA gigs will be filmed for a dvd release

  70. ladyloveselectro

    They were AWESOME, saw them last night at Hammersmith and they played this too. Electro forever!

  71. Brian Harris

    I'll let you know how they are live...four weeks and counting...


    Went to see them on reconnected tour in Newcastle, absolutely awesome, like they have never been away, long live Yazoo

  73. YazooMusic

    The 12" remix version of this song (released as a double A side with "Nobody's Diary")reached #1 on the US dance charts in 1983. It was the third (and final) #1 dance hit fo Yaz, following "Don't Go" and "Situation."

  74. Jampar68

    Such as?!?!

  75. Darran Mather

    love it! 'go'!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  76. Brian Harris

    One of my favorite Yaz songs. I have nearly front row tickets to see them in Chicago in July. I can't wait. I hope they do this song.
    I'm glad the American release of the "You and Me Both" album included this song, which was originally a B-side. On the album, it replaced the much inferior "Happy People," which was included on the U.K. release.

  77. WildmanBorneo

    Top Tune....will see them in June, Plymouth UK


    WildmanBorneo that was 9 years ago did you get to see them

  78. 54spiritedwill54

    I miss the 80´s

  79. bpmcorp

  80. John von Ahlen

    pure genious. minimal electro pop. 20 years on - and it still sounds fresh. play this at my funeral would you? it rocks :)

  81. godadameve

    Hi, HDSmuzik, Are you referring to SYNTH settings for this sound? Did Vince use a PRO ONE? Or the SH101?

  82. sastal

    I agree. Imagine how it would be without the ducky!

  83. Nighty

    Video's a bit dull.

    Louisville Slugger

    Nighty shut up and dance

  84. Stephen Bluhm

    taint stupid, it's just for those of us who don't have the cd and just want to hear the music.

  85. Syntpop

    :o)..oh I miss the 80´s

  86. go lucky
