The Move Up

This song is by Bourgeois Tagg and appears on the album Bourgeois Tagg (1986).

"Hello? hello? hello? hello?"
"... Very beginning, anything I have... anybody, uh, anybody doing great, it slips up; now this song is very difficult too, I think that..."

"I know you can do better, boy, I know you can
I know you can do better, son" 'cause lord, I think I'm in
So I would like to move up, and let my head start to swim
Touch hands and rub lips with the elegant interim
Shout-it-from-the-rooftops-ee-ooh-ah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah

Looking for a savior like a melody
And it's a sure reflection of the possibilities
The soul hurts some days
When you don't know who you're saving now
And I can't tell you if I shoulda been the one
Shout-it-from-the-rooftops-ee-ooh-ah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah yeah, all right
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah yeah
All right, whoa whoa... shout! (shout! shout! shout)

Now I don't know where I'll be
And I can't tell you if it shoulda been me
There's a whole lot of love lost
But that is what will get you there
It's kinda like the same thing (same thing, same thing)
Same thing... shout-it-from-the-rooftops-ee-ooh-ah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah

Ow!

Shout! woo! shout-it-from-the-rooftops-ee-ooh-ah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah yeah, all right
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah yeah, all right
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah yeah, all right
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop, yeah
Yay-ee-yah-ee-yah, hey yah, doo doo wop
