Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems  

Yo Yo Girl

Notes: words by Malvina Reynolds, music by Margret RoadKnight; written in 1977 and first performed in 1978. Australian singer Margret RoadKnight always stayed with Malvina when she was touring the U.S., and in 1977 she toured with Sandy Kogan--who happened to be the former yo-yo champion of New South Wales, and who would do yo-yo tricks whenever there was a lull in the action. Margret and Malvina also specially co-composed this song, which RoadKnight could perform to feature Sandy's act. RoadKnight is still active on the music scene; her homepage on the Web can be accessed at: .
