“Yodel It!” lyrics – Ilinca feat. Alex Florea (Romania, Eurovision 2017)

62

On Sunday, 5 March, Ilinca feat. Alex Florea won Selectia Nationala 2017 with “Yodel It!”, earning the right to represent Romania at the Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv. You can read the “Yodel It!” lyrics below.

The unique rap-meets-yodeling combo was rewarded with top points from the jury and won the televote by a large margin. “Yodel It!” also won our readers’ hearts and we ranked it first in our Wiwi Jury.

The “Yodel It” lyrics play on the dynamic of light defeating the darkness of life. Similar to Taylor Swift in “Shake It Off”, Ilinca teaches us to break free from the daily doom and gloom, but she suggests yodeling our hearts out instead of shaking it off. During the bridge, she sings: “If you’re stuck in a place feeling incomplete, If you wanna run feeling like a misfit, Come on sing along, Come on sing this song”. All we need to learn now is how to yodel — we could use Ilinca’s tutorial — and we’ll be all set!

“Yodel It!” – Ilinca feat. Alex Florea

Although it is instantly catchy and memorable, “Yodel It!” can prove rather tricky to sing along to, due to the yodeling parts, which few apart from Ilinca Bacila can master. But if you want to try, check out the “Yodel It!” lyrics below. To quote a very wise man: “Yodel like no one is listening, love like you’ll never be hurt!”

“Yodel It!” lyrics – Ilinca feat. Alex Florea (Romania, Eurovision 2017)

Alex:
Hey
All you out there
Wanna sing and shout
Yodele, yodeleioo
Sing it!
Yodele, yodeleioo

Ilinca:
Yodeleeii (yodeleioo)
Yodeleioo (Sing it so I can hear you)
Yodeleeii (Yodele, yodeleioo)

Alex:
You never show the spark that makes you glow
You always run away, you always say no to the right things
Don’t try to hide the light inside of you
Today might be the day when you will make it baby

Ilinca:
So bring it on, bring it on, I’m a dreamer
If you don’t believe it, come and see me I will teach you

Alex:
If you never try, you’ll never be alive
You are gonna miss out on this ride

Chorus:
Yodeleeii
Yodeleeii, yodeleeii, yodeleioo

Yodeleeii
Wanna hear this now (Yodeleio)
Gonna act real crazy (Yodeleeii)
Yodele yodeleioo (Yodeleio)

Alex:
Now what’s the use of being so confused
Of doing all this work you really don’t want to be doing
But you’ll be fine, it’s time to feel alive
Don’t stop from reaching for the stars and keep on moving

Ilinca:
So bring it on, bring it on, I’m a dreamer
If you don’t believe it, come and see me, I will teach ya

Alex:
If you never try, you’ll never be alive
You are gonna miss out on this ride!

Chorus:
Yodeleeii
Yodeleeii, yodeleeii, yodeleioo

Yodeleeii
Wanna hear this now (Yodeleio)
Gonna act real crazy (Yodeleeii)
Yodele yodeleioo (Yodeleio)

Bridge:

Sitting alone at my desk on a 9 to 5 program
It just won’t do
Get another coffee, get another one to make it through
Don’t want this anymore

Don’t you hide that light inside of you
Come and show me what you wanna do

If you’re stuck in a place feeling incomplete
If you wanna run feeling like a misfit
Come on sing along
Come on sing this song
Say 1, 2, 3

Yodelei, yodeleio
Just shout it baby
Yodelei, yodeleio
Just shout it baby
Yodeleeii
Wanna hear this now
Yodeleio
Gonna act really crazy
Yodeleeii
Yodele yodeleioo
Just shout it baby
