The Origin of the phrase: Get Your Ya-Yas Out
Posted by: Vocalion ()

Blind Boy Fuller was a ragtime blues artist between 1924 and 1940. His repertoire included a number of popular double entendre "hokum" songs such as "I Want Some Of Your Pie", "Truckin' My Blues Away" (the origin of the phrase "keep on truckin'), and "Get Your Yas Yas Out" (adapted as "Get Your Ya-Yas Out" for the origin of the later Rolling Stones album title.

What does Get Your Ya-Yas Out exactly MEAN?! I know about the 'show me your tits' theory, but my priest told me that's rubbish.

Ya Ya's is slang for wallet.
Since the LP was in response to the bootleg I guess it seemed like a decent title.

in the Tampa Red lyric yas yas yas is a stand-in for ass:

THE DUCK YAS-YAS-YAS
by Tampa Red and Georgia Tom Dorsey

Mama bought a rooster, she thought it was a duck
She brought him to the table with his legs straight up
In came the children with the cup and a glass
To catch the liquor from his yas yas yas

Never heard that one before. It's an old New orleans expression as far as I know that means casting your evil spirits out.
It may take on an altogether new meaning for Man City fans this season after they signed Ya Ya Toure from Barcelona in the close season.
It's also mentioned in the chorus of the song Lady Marmalade - 'did ya get ya Ya Yas out'!

The best is to fill in for "Ya Ya's" what you like

I always thought it meant something like an exhortation to enjoy yourself, to let yourself go, to enjoy the music etc
But it could just be the Stones being mischievous and changing the well-known English phrase "Get your tits [breasts] out", substituting "ya yas" to avoid controversy. ??



I am a Frenchie ,as Mick affectionately called them in the Old Grey Whistle Test in 1977 .

I hope this helps:
almost all the albums issued in South American countries had the title translated in 'Saca tu Burro de Aqui' (Take your Donkey away from Here) and Charlie Watts' riding a donkey on the album cover.
As far as I know 'get yer ya-ya's out!' was said by voodoo mamas when curing ill people to force the evil/devil out of the body of their patients.
More details are more than welcome, bye

In the early 80s there was a Mick Jagger interview in a Dutch magazine (I thought it was
Muziek Express) where Mick was asked this question. If I remember correctly, his answer
was "it's what you get out of your pants when you want to give your girl a good time".

So I guess wallet is the correct answer....
