School Of Rock Musical – You're In The Band lyrics

Grab a hold of your axe and try to pluck out this riff.
Let your shoulders relax, you don't wanna be so stiff.
Keep on going don't stop, take it over the top.
Make each note really pop, squeeze out every last drop.
Give it one final whop! and yes, you're in the band.
Turn a cello this way and it's practically like a bass.
Pop the strings when the play and watch how you shred my face.
Keep on rockin' each note, grab it right by the throat.
Keep the rhythm afloat, don't forget to emote.
And that's all that she wrote! Baby you're in the band.
If you play the piano, you can play the keys.
So just loosen it up and strut your expertise.
Take a look at this music and let your mind expand. You're in the band.
Sit your butt at the skins and try to whack out a beat.
Feel the groove in your pins, then slowly turn up the heat.
With a rat-a-tat-tat on the bass and hi-hat.
Make it juicy and fat, yes exactly like that! And now shut it down flat. You're in the band.
I need a couple of roadies, I need someone on tech.
Who wants to be security?
Well how about being manager? Is that something you could swing?
It means I'm putting you in charge of the whole damn thing! We've got our band.
Now repeat after me, I pledge allegiance to the band! (I pledge allegiance to the band!)
And I promise to give Mr. Schneebly full command! (I promise to give Mr. Schneebly full command!)
And with me in control of the band as a whole, we will rock and we'll roll, with our heart and our soul.
If you're in raise your hand!
I'm in the band!
I'm in the band!
I'm in the band!
I'm in the band!
I'm in the band!
I'm in the band!
You're in the band!
We're in the band!
You're in the band!
We're in the band!
You're in the band!
