Listen To The Music Lyrics

Don't you feel it growing - day by day
People - getting ready for the news - some are happy - some are sad
Whoa now mamma gotta 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 momma don't you ask me why

Whoa, oh listen to the music - Whoa, oh listen to the music
Whoa, oh listen to the music - All the time

Well I know - you know baby - everything I say
Meet me in the country for a day - we'll be happy - and we'll dance
Oh we're gonna dance the night away
And if I'm feeling good to you and you're feeling good to me
There ain't nothing we can't do or say - Feeling good - feeling fine
Oh - I'm gonna let myself unwind

Whoa, oh listen to the music - Whoa, oh listen to the music
Whoa, oh listen to the music - All the time

Like a lazy flowing river - Surrounding castles in the sky
And the crowd is growing bigger - Listening for the happy sounds and I got to let them fly

Whoa, oh listen to the music - Whoa, oh listen to the music
Whoa, oh listen to the music - All the time

Whoa, oh listen to the music - Whoa, oh listen to the music
Whoa, oh listen to the music - All the time
Whoa, oh listen to the music - Whoa, oh listen to the music
Whoa, oh listen to the music - All the time
