LETRA DE MAGIC POWER

Something’s at the edge of your mind, you don’t know what it is

Somethin’ you were hopin’ to find but your not sure what it is

Then you hear the music and it all comes crystal clear

The music does the talkin’ says the things you want to hear
I’m young, I’m wild and I’m free

I got the magic power of the music in me
She climbs into bed, she pulls the covers overhead and she turns her little radio on

She’s had a rotten day so she hopes the DJ’s gonna play her favorite song

It makes her feel much better, brings her closer to her dreams

A little magic power makes it better that it seems
She’s young now, she’s wild now, she wants to be free

She gets the magic power of the music in me
If you’re thinkin’ it over but you just can’t sort it out

Do you want someone to tell you what they think it’s all about

Are you the one and only who’s sad and lonely, reachin’ for the top

Well the music keeps you goin’ and it’s never gonna stop

Never gonna stop

Never gonna, never gonna, never gonna stop
The world is full of compromise, and infinite red tape

But the music’s got the magic, it’s your one chance for escape

So turn me on – turn me up – it’s your turn to dream

A little magic power makes it better than it seems
I’m young, I’m wild and I’m free

I got the magic power of the music in me

“There is a girl in New York City 

Who calls herself the human trampoline

And sometimes when I’m falling, flying 

Or tumbling in turmoil I say 

Oh, so this is what she means…”
Así me siento la mayor parte del tiempo…    😉

GRACELAND, de Paul Simon

Lyrics

The Mississippi Delta was shining 

Like a National guitar 

I am following the river 

Down the highway 

Through the cradle of the civil war 

I’m going to Graceland 

Graceland 

In Memphis Tennessee 

I’m going to Graceland 

Poor boys and pilgrims with families 

And we are going to Graceland 

My traveling companion is nine years old 

He is the child of my first marriage 

But I’ve reason to believe 

We both will be received 

In Graceland 
She comes back to tell me she’s gone 

As if I didn’t know that 

As if I didn’t know my own bed 

As if I’d never noticed 

The way she brushed her hair from her forehead 

And she said losing love 

Is like a window in your heart 

Everybody sees you’re blown apart 

Everybody sees the wind blow 
I’m going to Graceland 

Memphis Tennessee 

I’m going to Graceland 

Poor boys and pilgrims with families 

And we are going to Graceland 
And my traveling companions 

Are ghosts and empty sockets 

I’m looking at ghosts and empties 

But I’ve reason to believe 

We all will be received 

In Graceland 
There is a girl in New York City 

Who calls herself the human trampoline 

And sometimes when I’m falling, flying 

Or tumbling in turmoil I say 

Oh, so this is what she means 

She means we’re bouncing into Graceland 

And I see losing love 

Is like a window in your heart 

Everybody sees you’re blown apart 

Everybody sees the wind blow 
In Graceland, in Graceland 

I’m going to Graceland 

For reasons I cannot explain 

There’s some part of me wants to see 

Graceland 

And I may be obliged to defend 

Every love, every ending 

Or maybe there’s no obligations now 

Maybe I’ve a reason to believe 

We all will be received 

In Graceland


“… gotta learn to give if you wanna live in a small world”

-Canción Small World, Huey Lewis and The News

Spotify

YouTube

SMALL WORLD

All around the world 

There are people like you and me 

From the poorest beggar in the street 

To the richest king and queen 
Some people take 

And then they never give 

You gotta learn to give and take 

If you wanna learn to live 

In a small world

Small, small world 
Now we can 

Fight one another 

Like they to on T.V. 

Or we can 

Help one another 

The way it’s supposed to be 
If we all give a little 

It could really mean a lot 

It’s a small world 

But it’s the only one we’ve got 

Small world

Small, small world


“I went from zero to my own hero”

Canción Roar, de Katy Perry

Oleta Adams

Escuché por primera vez a Oleta Adams en el album Seed of Love de Tears For Fears, el tercer y más éxitoso album de la banda inglesa, que contó con la participación de bateristas como Manu Katché, Phil Collins y Simon Phillips. Oleta participó en todo el album tocando el piano y cantó en dos canciones: Woman in Chains y Badman’s Song. Unos meses después, me tocó la oportunidad de verlos en concierto en Houston Texas, y la gran revelación para mí fue Oleta. Un par de años después, impulsada por la fama que obtuvo por su colaboración con Tears for Fears, grabó su tercer album como solista, y desde luego yo lo hice uno de mis favoritos.

Para que disfrutes tu Domigo, hoy te comparto la segunda canción de su album Circle of One: Get There.

Si te gusta compártela.

¡Feliz Domingo!

GET THERE

You can reach me by railway
You can reach me by trailway
You can reach me on an airplane
You can reach me with your mind

You can reach me by a caravan
Cross the desert like an Arab man
I don’t care how you get here
Just Get here if you can

You can reach me by sailboat
Climb a tree and swing rope to rope
Take a sled and slide down the slope
Into these arms of mine

You can jump on a speedy colt
Cross the border in a blaze of hope
I don’t care how you get here
Just Get here if you can

There are hills and mountains between us
Always something to get over
If I had my way, surely you would be closer
I need you closer

There are hills and mountains between us
Always something to get over
If I had my way, surely you would be closer
I need you closer

You can windsurf into my life
Take me up on a carpet ride
You can make it in a big balloon
But you better make it soon

You can reach me by caravan
Cross the desert like an Arab man
I don’t care how you get here
Get here if you can

I don’t care, I don’t care
I need you right here, right now
I need you right here, right now, right by my side
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah, oh
I don’t care how you get here
Get here if you can

Harry Conick Jr A-352440-1297853500.jpeg

Escuché por primera vez de Harry Conick Jr. en el soundtrack de la película When Harry Met Sally en 1989, y desde ahí me convertí en fan de su música. Tengo todos sus albums y los oigo regularmente.

Hace unos dos años te presenté Love is Here to Stay, hoy te presento otra de mis canciones favoritas que está perfecta para el Día del Amor y la Amistad. Espero que la disfrutes.

I’ve got a great idea – Harry Conick Jr.

Aquí está la letra de I’ve got a great idea:

I’ve got a great idea
And wouldn’t you like to know
You probably can’t bear it
So I guess I’ll have to share it
I thought of it a moment ago

It starts with your hand in mine
And next comes a little stroll
You probably won’t buy it
But I’m trying to keep it quiet
So please don’t tell a soul

‘cause if you do
The world and you
Will think I’m crazy and give me medicine
They’ll drag me away
And as I go you’ll hear me say
I could have been a decent match for edison

Ideas are few and far between
And good ideas are rarer still
So listen and be wise
Just forget the other guys
‘cause my idea’s no good for three
My idea is you and me

Harry Conick Jr. en Wikipedia:

El grupo se formó en octubre de 2007, aprovechando el éxito de lo que los medios calificaron como “La escena folk del oeste de Londres” junto con otros artistas como Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn y Noah and the Whale.

Mumford & Sons grabaron tres EP antes de lanzar su primer álbum, Lend Me Your Eyes; Love Your Ground y The Cave and The Open Sea. Hicieron múltiples giras por el Reino Unido para enseñar su música al público y ganar respaldo para su álbum. Su álbum debut, Sigh No More, fue lanzado en el Reino Unido en octubre de 2009, y en los Estados Unidos en febrero de 2010. El álbum alcanzó el número 2 en el UK Album Chart y en el Billboard 200 en los Estados Unidos.2 3

El grupo ganó popularidad en 2010 tocando ante grandes audiencias y teniendo su primera aparición en la televisión estadounidense. El 1 de diciembre de 2010, el grupo recibió dos nominaciones a los Premios Grammy, una por el Mejor artista nuevo y otra por la Mejor canción de rock (“Little Lion Man”). Ganaron el Premio musical ARIA de Artista internacional más popular en 2010, y el Premio Brit en 2011 por Mejor álbum británico. Ahora Mumford & Sons está preparando, con su nuevo sonido electrónico, las canciones para el directo, así como su gira de verano en la que por primera vez, saldrán de su Londres natal.

Hoy te presento una de mis canciones favoritas de Mumford and Sons, Lover of the Light. Espero que la disfrutes.

Aquí está la letra de Lover of the Light

And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength
Of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade
Of the shadows thrown
But I’d be yours if you’d be mine

Stretch out my life
And pick the seams out
Take what you like
But close my ears and eyes
Watch me stumble over and over

I had done wrong
You build your tower
But call me home
And I will build a throne
And wash my eyes out never again

But love the one you hold
And I’ll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

With skin too tight
And eyes like marbles
You spin me high
So watch me as I glide
Before I tumble homeward, homeward

I know I tried
I was not stable
And flawed by pride
I miss my sanguine eyes
So hold my hands up – breathe in and breathe out

So love the one you hold
And I’ll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

And in the middle of the night
I may watch you go
There’ll be no value in the strength
Of walls that I have grown
There’ll be no comfort in the shade
Of the shadows thrown
You may not trust the promises
Of the change I’ll show
But I’d be yours if you’d be mine

So love the one you hold
And I’ll be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

So love the one you hold
And I will be your goal
To have and to hold
A lover of the lights

¿Para ti, quién es esa persona que cuando está contigo, no le temes a nada?

Espero que la disfrutes. ¡Feliz Domingo!

 

NO FEAR OF HEIGHTS

I never walked near the edge
Used to fear falling
I never swam far from shore
Never tried the secret doorBut when you give me love
When you give me loveI have no fear of heights,
No fear of the deep blue sea,
Although it could drown me,
I know it could drown me

I didn’t wander in the woods
Used to fear the darkness
I didn’t like getting deep
I was scared of what I couldn’t keep

But when you give me love
When you give me love

I have no fear of heights,
No fear of the deep blue sea,
Although it could drown me,
I know it could drown me

No fear of the fall
No fear if it’s with you that I fall
‘cause nothing could break us,
No, nothing could break us, now

Hold on to me as we go
As we roll down this unfamiliar road

‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

Settle down, it’ll all be clear

If you get lost, you can always be found

If you get lost, you can always be found

Just know you’re not alone
‘Cause I’m gonna make this place your home

(Come on!)

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend.

If the sky above you should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow,
keep your head together and call my name out loud.
Soon I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call and I’ll be there.

Hey, ain’t it good to know that you’ve got a friend? People can be so cold.
They’ll hurt you and desert you. Well, they’ll take your soul if you let them,
oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

You just call out my name, and you know where ever I am
I’ll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall, all you have to do is call, Lord, I’ll be there, yeah, yeah,
you’ve got a friend. You’ve got a friend.
Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend. Ain’t it good to know you’ve got a friend.
Oh, yeah, yeah, you’ve got a friend.

GENTE (Español)

Una vez más, casi continuamente
Vuelve a caer, y volverá a equivocarse
Mucho más fuerte si cabe

La vida es un hilo en equilibrio
Que al separar dos puntos equidistantes
Puede acercarles

Y cada día juntos, haciendo sólo un metro más
Se necesita todo, todo lo bueno y lo malo que tengas en ti

Aunque después te baste una sonrisa
Para fundir todo un invierno de hielo
Para empezar desde cero

Porque no hay un límite para nadie
Que dentro de él tenga valores eternos
No hay más misterio

No somos…
Ángeles, no nos caímos del cielo
La gente que busca el amor verdadero
Gente que quiere un mundo sincero
La gente corriente de cualquier ciudad

Prueba y verás que siempre hay algo nuevo
Dentro de ti para empezar otro vuelo
Directo al cielo

No somos…
Ángeles, no nos caímos del cielo
La gente que busca el amor verdadero
Gente que quiere un mundo sincero
La gente que unida lo cambiará

Gente que quiere un mundo sincero
La gente que unida lo cambiará

Unida lo cambiará, lo verás
Gente que luchará
Unida lo intentará, lo verás
Gente que arriesgará
Unida lo logrará, lo verás
Gente que cambiará

 

GENTE (Italiano)

Si sbaglia sai quasi continuamente
Sperando di non farsi mai troppo male
Ma quante volte si cade
La vita sai è un filo in equilibrio
E prima o poi ci ritroviamo distanti
Davanti a un bivio
Ed ogni giorno insieme per fare solo un metro in più
Ci vuole tutto il bene che riusciremo a trovare in ognuno di noi
Ma a volte poi basta un sorriso solo
A sciogliere in noi anche un inverno di gelo
E ripartire da zero
Perché non c’è un limite per nessuno
Che dentro sè abbia un amore sincero
Solo un respiro
Non siamo angeli in volo venuti dal cielo
Ma gente comune che ama davvero
Gente che vuole un mondo più vero
La gente che incontri per strada in città
Prova e vedrai ci sarà sempre un modo
Dentro di noi per poi riprendere il volo
Verso il sereno
Non siamo angeli in volo venuti dal cielo
Ma gente comune che ama davvero
Gente che vuole un mondo più vero
La gente che insieme lo cambierà
Gente che vuole un mondo più vero
La gente che insieme lo cambierà
Insieme lo cambierà, proverà
Gente che proverà
Lavori lo cambierà, riuscirà
Gente che riuscirà
Insieme ci riuscirà, cambierà
Gente che cambierà

THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE:

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)

I had a dream so big and loud
I jumped so high I touched the clouds
Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh (Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh)

I stretched my hands out to the sky
We danced with monsters through the night
Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh (Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh)

I’m never gonna look back, Whoa-Oh
Never gonna give it up, No-Oh
Please don’t wake me now

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) Whoo
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)

I howled at the moon with my friends
And then the sun came crashing in
Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh (Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh)

But all the possibilities
No limits just epiphanies
Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh (Whoa-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh)

I’m never gonna look back, Whoa-Oh
Never gonna give it up, No-Oh
Just don’t wake me now

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)

I hear it calling
Outside my window
I feel it in my soul (Soul)

The stars were burning so bright
The sun was out ‘till midnight
I say we lose control (Control)

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)

(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh)
This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

This is gonna be the best day of my life
(Ooh, Ooh-Ooh, Ooh) My li-i-i-i-i-i-ife

onerepublic waking up

Hace unos meses me tocó la fortuna de ir con mi familia  a un concierto de tres buenas bandas del momento: American Authors, The Script y mis favoritos OneRepublic. Sin duda fue para mí el evento del año.

Durante las próximas semanas voy a compartir mis canciones favortias de estos grupos, por lo pronto, aquí está Good Life, de OneRepublic. Espero que la disfrutes.

¡Feliz Domingo!

 

Aquí está la letra de Good Life:

Woke up in London yesterday
Found myself in the city near Piccadilly
Don’t really know how I got here
I got some pictures on my phone

New names and numbers that I don’t know
Address to places like Abbey Road
Day turns to night, night turns to whatever we want
We’re young enough to say

Oh, this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

Say, “Oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight”
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life, a good, good life

To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don’t know
Where I’ve been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Colorado

Sometimes there’s airplanes I can’ t jump out
Sometimes there’s bullshit that don’t work now
We all got our stories, but please tell me
What there is to complain about?

When you’re happy like a fool, let it take you over
When everything is out you gotta take it in

Oh, this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life

I say, oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life, a good, good life
Oh, a good, good life, yeah

Hopelessly
I feel like there might be something that I’ll miss
Hopelessly
I feel like the window closes oh so quick

Hopelessly
I’m taking a mental picture of you now
‘Cause hopelessly
The hope is we have so much to feel good about

Oh, this has gotta be the good life
This has gotta be the good life
This could really be a good life, good life
Say, “Oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight”
Like this city is on fire tonight
This could really be a good life, a good, good life
Oh yeah, good, good life, good life, oh, this is

Listen,
To my friends in New York, I say hello
My friends in L.A. they don’t know
Where I’ve been for the past few years or so
Paris to China to Colorado

Sometimes there’s airplanes I can’ t jump out
Sometimes there’s bullshit that don’t work now
We all got our stories but please tell me
What there is to complain about?

triumph maxresdefault

Todos mis años de secundaria y preparatoria los pasé escuchando heavy metal. Uno de mis grupos favoritos era el trío Canadiense Triumph. Cuando los escuché por primera vez pensé “¿Cómo tres personas pueden hacer tanto ruido?”

Rik Emmet era un virtouso de la guitarra, y cuando vi a Gil Moore en uno de los primeros videos que MTV promovió vía satélite, supe que tenía que aprender a tocar la batería.

Aquí te presentó una de mis canciones favoritas de Triumph, la que yo creo que es su mejor letra: Fight the Good Fight.

Aquí está la letra de Fight the Good Fight:

Days grow shorter and the nights are getting long
Feels like we’re running out of time
Every day it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong
You got to read between the lines

Don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, we can
Make it through another day
Make it worth the price we pay

The Good Book says it’s better to give than to receive
I do my best to do my part
Nothin’ in my pockets I got nothin’ up my sleeve
I keep my magic in my heart

Keep up your spirit, keep up your faith, baby
I am counting on you
You know what you’ve got to do

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
It’s your only way

All your life you’ve been waiting for your chance
Where you’ll fit into the plan
But you’re the master of your own destiny
So give and take the best that you can

You think a little more money can buy your soul some rest
You’d better think of something else instead
You’re so afraid of being honest with yourself
You’d better take a look inside your head

Nothing is easy, nothing good is free on earth
But I can tell you where to start
Take a look inside your heart
There’s an answer in your heart

Fight the good fight every moment
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

Every moment of your lifetime
Every minute every day
Fight the good fight every moment
Make it worth the price we pay

Aquí está la letra de Fill Her Up:

Mobile station,
Where I stand
This old gas pump
In my hand.

The Boss don’t like me
Face like a weasel,
All on my hands
The smell of diesel.

Here comes the big shot,
Here he comes!
From the city.
God Damn!
A V-8 engine
She runs so pretty.
Woo!
Fill ‘er up son
With unleaded.
I need a full tank of gas
where I’m headed
Up in the front seat
A pretty red head,
We’re going to Vegas
We’re gonna get wed
So fill her up son!
Don’t be starin’!
Yeah that’s a real diamond she be wearin’.
I’m gonna treat my baby one day.
I’m gonna fill her up and head out West.
I’m gonna find some money alright. Yeah
That’s it.
See those tail lights headed West
I got no money
to invest
I got no prospects
or education
I was lucky to get the job at this gas station

That old cash box
That old cash box
On the top shelf
On the top shelf
The boss is sleeping
The boss is sleeping
I’ll just help myself
Let’s consider this
as just a loan
I can sort it out later on the phone

I’m gonna pick my girl up tonight
I’m gonna fill ‘er up and head west
I’m gonna show her all the bright lights
We’re gonna say we lived ‘fore we come home
And as I head through the woods on the way back
The evening sun is slanting through the pine trees real pretty
it’s like i walked into a glade of heaven
and there’s music playing
and this money is cold in my hand and voice somewhere says:
“Why were you going to take that stolen thing?
What real happiness can it bring?”
Ahhh Ohhhh Ahhhh Ohhhh
Ahhhohhhh……Ohhhh
You’re gonna fill her up with sadness
You’re gonna fill her up with shame
You’re gonna fill her up with sorrow before she even takes your name
You’re gonna fill her up with madness
You’re gonna fill her up with pain
You’re gonna live with no tommorow
You’re gonna fill her up with hate
You’re gonna fill her up darkness
You’re gonna fill her up with light
You gotta fill her up with Jesus!
You gotta fill her up with light!
You gotta fill her up with spirit! Fill her up!
You’ve gotta fill her up with faith
You gotta fill her up with heaven!
You’ve got the rest of life to face
You’ve gotta fill her up right away
You’ve gotta fill her up with faith
You’ve gotta fill her up with babies (?!!?)
You’ve gotta fill her up with this way
You’re gonna love that girl forever
Your gonna fill her up for life
You’re gonna be her loving husband
She gonna be your loving wife
You’ve gotta fill her up with gladness.
You gotta fill her up with joy!
You gotta fill her up with love,
You gotta fill her up with love
You gotta fill her up with love

This could be the start of something big es una famosa canción escrita y publicada por el comediante y conducto de televisión Steve Allen.

Aquí te presento una versión más moderna de The Five Corners Quintet featuring Mark Murphy. ¡FELIZ DOMINGO!

Aquí está la letra de This Could Be the Start of Something Big:

You’re walking along the street or you’re at a party
Or else you’re alone and then you suddenly dig
You’re looking in someone’s eyes, you suddenly realize
This could be the start of something big

You’re lunching at Twenty-One and watching your diet
Declining a Charlotte Ruse, accepting a fig
When out of a clear blue sky, it’s suddenly gal and guy
And this could be the start of something big

Oh, there’s no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what’s written in the magic book
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You’re up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi’s
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand

There’s no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what’s written in the book
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You’re up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi’s
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell and right away you can tell
That this could be the start of something
I said this could be the start of something
This could be the start of something grand

Aquí están las letras de Price Tag, de Jessie J:

Seems like everybody’s got a price
I wonder how they sleep at night
When the sale comes first and the truth comes
second
Just stop for a minute and smile

Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
Got your shades on your eyes and the heels so high
That you can’t even have a good time
Everybody look to their left
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that? (Yeah)
We’re paying them with love tonight

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Ain’t about the (uh) cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the (yeah) ba-bling, ba-bling
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

We need to take in back in time
When music made us all unite
And it wasn’t low blows and the video hoes,
Am i the only one getting tired

Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can’t buy us happiness
Can we all slow down and enjoy right now
Guarantee we’ll be feelin’ alright

Everybody look to their left
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that? Yeah
We’ll paying them with love tonight

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Ain’t about the (uh) cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the (yeah) ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Yeah, yeah, well, keep the price tag and take the cash back
Just give me six strings and a half stack
And you can keep the cars, leave me the garage
And all I, yes, all I need are keys and guitars

And guess what, in 30 seconds I’m leaving to Mars
Yeah, we leaving across these undefeatable odds
It’s like this man, you can’t put a price on a life
We do this for the love, so we fight and sacrifice every night

So we ain’t gon’ stumble and fall, never
Waiting to see in a sign of defeat, uh uh
So we gon’ keep everyone moving their feet
So bring back the beat and then everyone sing, it’s not about

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Ain’t about the (uh) cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the (yeah) ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tag

Ain’t about the (uh) cha-ching, cha-ching
Ain’t about the (yeah) ba-bling, ba-bling
Wanna make the world dance
Forget about the price tags
