Ringo Starr – Drift Away lyrics
Williams

One, two, three, four

Give me the beat, boys,
Give me the beat, boys.

Day after day I'm more confused
But I look for the light through the pouring rain.
You know, that's A game that I hate to lose,
I'm feeling the strain,
Ain't it A shame?

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

I'm beginning to think that I'm wasting time
And I don't understand the things I do.
Yeah, the world outside looks so unkind,
Now it's up to you to carry me through.

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.
Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

And when my mind is free
You know, the melody can move me.
And when I'm feeling blue,
The guitar's coming through to soothe me, yeah.

Thanks for the joy you've given me,
I want you to know that I believe in the song.
The rhythm and rhyme and harmony
You help me along,
You're making me strong.

Give me the beat, boys,
Give me the beat, boys.
Come on!

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

Give me the beat, boys and free my soul,
I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.

Give me the beat, boy. (scat sing)

"THAT'S COOL, I'LL JUST DOUBLE THAT!"
