​Occapella

This song is by Ringo Starr and appears on the album Goodnight Vienna (1974).

Groovy!

Ah, there's music in the streets and there's music in the air.
A little ol' soul beat, and there's dancin' ev'rywhere.
I would tell the whole world, tell 'em if I could,
To add a little song into each life,
Oh, it's a-finger snappin' good.

Oh -
Oh -

Ah, pardon me, boys, but could you use it?
We're gonna make a little music.
You got soul, now don'tcha lose it,
We're gonna make a little music.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just a-singin' occapella.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just a-singin' occapella.

Oh -
Oh -

Hey!

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah,
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah-ah-ah.
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da - jabba dabba dabba dabba di dah.
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da - jabba dabba dabba dabba di dah.

Oh, there's dancin' in the streets and there's music in the air.
A little ol' soul beat, and there's dancin' ev'rywhere.
I would tell the whole world, tell 'em if I could,
To add a little song into each life,
You know it's finger poppin' good.

Oh -
Oh -

Pardon me, boys, but could you use it?
We're gonna make a little music.
You got soul, now don'tcha lose it,
We're gonna make a little music.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just a-singin' occapella,
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just a-singin' occapella.

I said, ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
Ev'rybody's singin' occapella.
I said, ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
Ev'rybody's singin' occapella.
Ev'rything's gonna be.
