Guess Who, The - Power In The Music Lyrics




Round about ‘20 the folks had plenty
No, they couldn't ask for too much more,
THE FATHA kept thumpin' and THE SATCH got jumpin'
And they rang right through with a roar,
Then around ‘30 when things got dirty
All the players meant a whole lot more
THE DUKE got stompin' and THE COUNT started rompin'
And what do you think it was for?

They put power in the music, and boy, you oughta hear it now,
They put power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how...

Round about ‘40 when things got sporty
They were dancin' every night till dawn,
THE BIRD got ‘em hoppin' with his crazy be-boppin'
And FRANKIE crooned on and on,
Then around ‘50 when folks got nifty
They were gettin' round to bendin' an ear,
CHUCK was duck-walkin' and THE KING got rockin'
And what do you think was here?

They got power in the music, and boy, you oughta hear it now,
They got power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how...

Then FOUR BOYS made a brand new noise, from far beyond the sea.
We loved ALL FOUR and we yelled for more, it was natural as could be,
Watts went up and loose ends went down, now it's anything it wants to be.

We got power in the music, and boy you oughta hear it now,
We got power in the music, the boys are gonna show you how,
Don't you know they gave it power, power in the music,
YAH YAH YAH,
Can't you feel it giving you now, power in the music,
YAY, YAY, YAY,
Can't you feel it growing every day, power in the music,
YAZ,YAZ,YAZ,
Don't you feel it disbursing, power in the music,
YAH, YAH, YAH
You see them dancing up and down now, there's power in the music,
YAY, YAY, YAY,
I feel it growing every day now, there's power in the music,
YAZ, YAZ, YAZ.

Guess Who, The Power In The Music Comments
  1. Barry's 8 Track Repair Fone

    Great tune - had the album and had forgotten all about this cool song. A little too sophisticated for the market like some other Guess Who stuff, and unfortunately the band's last hurrah as a big seller - but what a cool, lively and unusual song to go out with!

  2. David cawrowl

    Deep Tracks brung me here, wow!

  3. Randy Borst

    Never heard this one before. The beginning especially is excellent and the video works excellent.

  4. Johnny

    Sounds like America to me. Not this shithole yo music of these days!

  5. 2003Cpayne

    Clavinet Fest !

  6. Bahoomba

    One of the greatest guitar solos I've ever heard. Troiano was so under-appreciated .

  7. rick petroske

    Very good work on this video . I can remember listening to this album back in '75 with headphones in the late pm hours and just the right buzz going . After all it was 1975 !!! You might put your talent to work making a video for the song Dreams .

  8. David Robbins

    Love the Guess Who. HATE "remastered"
