At the start of the news day
The fires begin
In words and in pictures
But I'm not listening
I'm not taking it in

I'm going to go to the country
Where nothing goes on
Going to bury my head
Where I can't hear the sound of bombs
Playing along

Me, I'm just playing along
You and I, so many good people
All just playing along

I'm going to go to a bar
Where the jukebox is on
Going to shut out the noise
With a rock 'n' roll song
Playing along

I'm going to turn up the volume
I'm going to turn up the volume
I'm going to turn up the volume
Till I can't even think

Tell us a tale of the proud and the free
Sing us a swing time American melody
From Follow The Fleet

Me, I'm just playing along
You and I, a billion people
All just playing along

I'm going to turn up the volume
I'm going to turn up the volume
I'm going to turn up the volume
Till I can't even think
