There's mosquitoes on the river fish are rising up like birds Its been hot for seven weeks now, Too hot to even speak now, did you hear what I just heard?
Say it might have been a fiddle or it could have been the wind But there seems to be a beat now I can feel it my feet now Listen here it comes again!
There's a band out on the highway, they're high steppin into town Its a rainbow full of sound, it's fireworks, calliopes and clowns Everybody dancin cmon children, cmon children, come on clap your hands.
Sun went down in honey and the moon came up in wine, You know stars were spinnin dizzy, lord The band kept us too busy we forgot about the time.
They're a band beyond description, like jehovahs favorite choir People joining hand in hand while the music played the band, lord They're setting us on fire.
Crazy rooster crowin midnight, balls of lightin roll along Old men sing about their dreams, women laugh and children scream And the band keeps playin on.
Keep on dancin thru the daylight, greet the mornin air with song No oness noticed, but the bands all pack and gone. was it ever there at all? But they keep on dancin cmon children, cmon children, come on clap your hands Well the cool breeze came on tuesday, and the corns a bumper crop And the fields are full of dancin full of singin and romancin The music never stopped.
