Title: Hey Now Now
Artist: Michael Franti


Don't tell the DJ got to turn it low
We keep it rockin'til the early morn I say
Hey Now Now, I say hey now now
Don't tell the people that they got to go
I wanna keep em 'til the early morn I say
Hey Now Now, I say hey now now


You've been a soldier girl and I would do anything for you
It's true, it's true
I wanna be in the early morn', I'm gonna light up the night for you, (lighters)
It's true, it's true

‘CHORUS‘

Run come come comin' a join in this party
The riddim of the music make me feelin' irie
Hey now it doesn't matter where you comin' from a'
Dancin to the riddim of the feelin' of the drumma
Choose to do the things that make the people come together
Use the money maker that was given from your mama
Hey now selecta wanna get ya rub a dubba
Come come come til the sun shine on

‘CHORUS‘ (word up!)

Be who you are nothing more nothing less
And let the beauty that you love be….. the very best
Sing praises to the highest with your feet on the ground
And reach for your brother with the words that you sound and
Don't let mistakes be so monumental, and
Don't let your love be so confidential, and
Don’t let your mind be so darn judgmental
And please let heart be more influential
Be thankful for all the Spirit provides
And be thankful for all that you can see without eyes
Give thanks to music that keeps us alive
And give thanks to all the DJs worldwide

‘CHORUS‘

The music and the harmony, the family and friends
It seems like when your dancin’ man, the feelin’ never ends
The base of the base, the voice of the drum
The fumble of the keys, my weapon is my tounge
If there’s love in the rhythm then the soul is gonna follow
We turnin’ up the system, it’ll go until tomorrow
If you need some money, I got some that you can borrow
We dance until the sun come up and cast shadows
Right now… the tune reflects, lights out… we soon connect
We ride (ride) on lows and high
So hot that we sweat, so happy we cry
Wish bygones goodbye, thank god we’s alive
Wit’ time on our side and this rhyme I provide
We smile while we slide, do I say goodbye (nah)
We keep it rockin’ like the sound of lion

‘CHORUS‘

It’s hot…. and the police man come
And try to break up the party tonight…… uh ha (I say hey now now)
Then I would stand firm wit’ you
And would brace ourselves for the fight
All Night, alright I say

Don't tell the DJ got to turn it low
We keep it rockin'til the early morn I say
Hey Now Now, I say hey now now
Don't tell the people that they got to go
I wanna keep em 'til the early morn I say
Hey Now Now, I say hey now now
