Rhodes

Listen, listen
Listen, listen.

Don't need to hear what they're saying
'Cause their words are drowned out by their playing
Don't need to know the meaning
'Cause the meaning gets lost when he starts screaming.

But there's nothing you can do or say
When the band begins to play, you better listen, listen.

And if you've paid your money
Then you don't want to hear a band that sounds funny
Does it really matter to you
If he screams so loud and long, he turns blue?

But there's nothing you can do or say
When the band begins to play, you better listen, listen
You better listen, listen, listen, listen
Listen, listen, listen, oh yeah
You better listen, listen, listen, listen, listen, oh yeah.

But there's nothing you can do or say
When the band begins to play, you better listen, listen
You better listen.

I've been here over an hour
They don't get no softer, just keep getting louder
There's no ifs or maybes
They been playing rock and roll ever since they were babies.

But there's nothing you can do or say
When the band begins to play, you better listen, listen.

But there's nothing you can do or say
When the band begins to play, you better listen, listen
You better listen.
