Following on the heels Wi' Nae Wee Bairn Ye'll Me Beget, this is the second of the two murder ballads on 69 Love Songs — though both are eccentric in relation to the corps of 'traditional' murder ballads.

Using the classification schema for murder ballads provided by Eric Zorn — see [details and lyrics of twelve other ballads] — the entry for Yeah! Oh, Yeah! would be:

Location of murder: Domestic
Method: Knife
Name of Killer / Relation to victim: Unspecified, wife
Motive: Perpetual whining, can't sing
Method of body disposal: Unspecified
Justice done? Yeah! Oh, Yeah!
