BOSTON lyrics - Boston

Rock And Roll Band

Original and similar lyrics
(Scholz) Well, we were just another band out of Boston On the road to try to make ends meet Playin' all the bars, sleepin' in our cars And we practiced right on out in the street No, we didn't have much money We barely made enough to survive But when we got up on stage and got ready to play People came alive. Rock and roll band Everybody's waitin' Gettin' crazy Anticipating love and music Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Dancin' in the streets of Hyannis We were getting pretty good at the game People stood in line and didn't seem to mind You know everybody knew our name Livin' on rock-n-roll music Never worry 'bout the things we were missing When we got up on the stage and got ready to play Everybody'd listen. Rock and roll band Everybody's waitin' Gettin' crazy Anticipating love and music Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah Playin' for a week in Rhode Island A man came to the stage one night He smoked a big cigar Drove a Cadillac car And said, 'Boys, I think this bands outta-sight Sign a record company contract You know I've got great expectations When I hear you on the car radio You're goin' to be a sensation!' Rock and roll band Everybody's waitin' Gettin' crazy Anticipating love and music Play, play, play, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

I'm Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band)

MOODY BLUES "Seventh Sojourn"
I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth Meeting so many people Who are trying to be free And while I'm traveling I hear so many words Language barriers broken Now we've found the key And if you want the wind of change To blow about you And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band. A thousand pictures can be drawn from one word Only who is the artist We got to agree A thousand miles can lead so many ways Just to know who is driving What a help it would be So if you want this world of yours To turn about you And you can see exactly what to do Please tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band. How can we understand Riots by the people for the people Who are only destroying themselves And when you see a frightened Person who is frightened by the People who are scorching this earth. I'm just a wandering on the face of this earth Meeting so many people Who are trying to be free And while I'm traveling I hear so many words Language barriers broken Now we've found the key And if you want the wind of change To blow about you And you're the only other person to know, don't tell me I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band. How can we understand Riots by the people for the people Who are only destroying themselves And when you see a frightened Person who is frightened by the People who are scorching this earth. Music is the traveller crossing our world Meeting so many people bridging the seas I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band. We're just the singers in a rock and roll band. I'm just a singer in a rock and roll band...
