Manhattan TransferIt's Good Enough To Keep

The jam is jumpin' The drums are pumpin' The groove is lockin' in the rhythm like we want it to be No time for stallin' We're really haulin' We've gotta keep it in the pocket or we'll stagger behind You never know just when to leave it when you're riffin' in time Or if the time itself will falter, or of words even rhyme But we admit, the trick to it is not to think about it When you're busy bravin' all the notes in the line This time we mean it We're gonna swing it And take you right up to the end before we try to unwind Alan's solo: I've never been the kind of guy who could just normally quit Never could decide when to rest my pride And feel all right with just good enough Thoughts, they gather Tellin' me to look to find a bright new way To assemble all the stimulated motives that haunt me Tryin' a live it, be in the moment, tryin' to sing it alone Can beckon to me, a feelin' of being bent So I believe, takin' a leave is the brightest way to stop All the chatter boxin' going 'round in my brain So I'm wailin' - movin' and groovin' this part of this song I hope that my riff's good enough to keep Better leave it now or go out of my mind Violin solo Tim's solo: Now I dig you think that perfect's what we should make it But I've been down that road and I can tell ya how we feel's The most important thing about it Whether you're right or whether you might think We're pathetic A little lighter on the reins will help you loosen up the chains That are still binding you - In the past, whenever thoughts I had would try to re- Evaluate all that I would do I'd hesitate, consolidate, and motivate All the little pearls of doubt that strive to break up Every single bit of Precious joy that flowed from god's soul spark that Shines within me That's it in a nut shell So take advice from this sap, go for feel and leave it alone Mandolin solo: Now's the time to sing Swing is what we bring Rhythm that's the thing To really get your spirit movin' higher Gonna jump and play Dance the night away Make you really sway And let the music take you even higher E-lla sang this song real special Come on, come on - we'll sing this special song for you One more one we'll go But before we blow We want you to know The take is really good enough, we'll keep it! © 2018
