Lyrics


Don't you feel it growin', day by day

People gettin' ready for the news

Some are happy, some are sad

Oh, we got to let the music play

What the people need

Is a way to make 'em smile

It ain't so hard to do if you know how

Gotta get a message

Get it on through

Oh, now mama's go'n' to after 'while

Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

All the time


Well I know, you know better

Everything I say

Meet me in the country for a day

We'll be happy

And we'll dance

Oh, we're gonna dance our blues away

And if I'm feelin' good to you

And you're feelin' good to me

There ain't nothin' we can't do or say

Feelin' good, feeling fine

Oh, baby, let the music play


Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

All the time


Like a lazy flowing river

Surrounding castles in the sky

And the crowd is growing bigger

List'nin' for the happy sounds

And I got to let them fly


Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

Oh, oh, listen to the music

All the time
