(Brown)
With Mr Soul or King Creole
You gotta go with the man in the band
He'll be your guide
Singing la la la la
But what makes Mr Politic
A lot of words another trick
Turn peace into war
Singing ha ha ha ha


Ooh it's not the way we want it
Not the way at all
Not the way to change our minds
Our backs up against the wall

The boys in the band all live in harmony
For life's a poem
And we can make it rhyme
The boys in the band all live in harmony
Let's get it together before we
Go down, down, down

I don't want to theorise it
Just hope people realise
The simple melody can free your soul
And let you be man what you are
And fly la la la
But every back street slum where
Pushers push and hookers hook
Just won't set you free with ha ha ha ha

Oooh it's not the way we want it
Not the way at all
Not the way to change our minds
Our backs up against the wall

The boys in the band all live in harmony
For life's a poem
And we can make it rhyme
The boys in the band all live in harmony
Let's get it together before we
Go down, down, down

Break

The boys in the band all live in harmony
The boys in the band all live in harmony

Oooh it's not the way we want it
Not the way at all
Not the way to change our minds
Our backs up against the wall

The boys in the band all live in harmony
The boys in the band all live in harmony

The boys in the band all live in harmony
The boys in the band all live in harmony

The boys in the band all live in harmony
The boys in the band all live in harmony
