The Guess Who – Power In The Music lyrics

(B. Cummings - D. Troiano)

Round about '20 the folks had plenty
No, they couldn't ask for too much more,
The fatha kept thumpin' and the satch got jumpin'
And they rang right through with a roar,
Then around '30 when things got dirty
All the players meant a whole lot more
The duke got stompin' and the count started rompin'
And what do you think it was for?

They put power in the music, and boy, you oughta hear it now,
They put power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how...

Round about '40 when things got sporty
They were dancin' every night till dawn,
The bird got 'em hoppin' with his crazy be-boppin'
And frankie crooned on and on,
Then around '50 when folks got nifty
They were gettin' round to bendin' an ear,
Chuck was duck-walkin' and the king got rockin'
And what do you think was here?

They got power in the music, and boy, you oughta hear it now,
They got power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how...

Then four boys made a brand new noise, from far beyond the sea.
We loved all four and we yelled for more, it was natural as could be,
Watts went up and loose ends went down, now it's anything it wants to be.

We got power in the music, and boy you oughta hear it now,
We got power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how,
Don't you know they gave it power, power in the music,
Yah yah yah,
Can't you feel it giving you now, power in the music,
Yay, yay, yay,
Can't you feel it growing every day, power in the music,
Yaz, yaz, yaz,
Don't you feel it disbursing, power in the music,
Yah, yah, yah
You see them dancing up and down now, there's power in the music,
Yay, yay, yay,
I feel it growing every day now, there's power in the music,
Yaz, yaz, yaz.
