"Was a Yes" is a song by Andy Partridge. It appeared on the 1992 fan club cassette The Bull with the Golden Guts, then on Andy's Fuzzy Warbles Volume 8 in 2006.


Andy: “A piece of unfinished strummery for Oranges (I think the first tentative idea I put down) captured quick before I forgot it!”

Andy: “Quickly thrown down first song idea for the Oranges and Lemons album. Obviously a second take as a piece of la la lyric from take 1 is left unerased at the end.”


Here comes my neck

And here comes the axe

Covered my ears

Scared of the facts

I never dreamt that that was the answer I'd hear

I've been clocking up the courage to ask you all year

Now I'm reeling, punchy with success

Because her answer was yes

To every little question I could ask her

Why her answer was yes

The pessimist in me expects disaster

But her answer was yes

Here comes my hand

Here Here... (fade out with first take gibberish)[1]
