    Yellowledbetter????

    I would not call myself a Perl Jam freak, but I have heard this song more than a few times.

    I can make out about 95% of what is being said, but it still makes NO SENSE to me. Someone fill me in?

    Here you go mang! I hope the lyrics help in you search for the meaning of the song.
    "Yellow Ledbetter"

    Unsealed on a porch a letter sat.
    Then you said, "I wanna leave it again."
    Once I saw her on a beach of weathered sand. And on the sand I wanna leave it again. Yeah.
    On a weekend I wanna wish it all away, yeah.
    And they called and I said that "I want what I said" and then I call out
    again.
    And the reason oughta' leave her calm, I know.
    I said "I don't know whether I'm the boxer or the bag."

    Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don't wave.
    But I see them round the front way. Yeah.
    And I know, and I know. I don't want to stay.
    Make me cry...

    I see... Ooh I don't know why there's something else.
    I wanna drum it all away...
    Oh, I said, "I don't, I don't know wheather I was the boxer or the bag."

    Ah yeah, can you see them out on the porch? Yeah, but they don't wave.
    But I see them round the front way. Yeah.
    And I know, and I know. I don't wanna stay at all.
    I don't wanna stay. Yeah.
    I don't wanna stay. [x2]
    I don't... Don't wanna, oh... Yeah. Ooh... Ohh...
