Hooters, The - Give The Music Back Lyrics




They took the beat away, replaced it with machines
They took the words away and threw 'em on a screen
They turned the switches on and handed us the phones
They blasted out our ears with endless monotone

Can you feel it, can you feel it
From a million miles away
Can you hear it, can you hear it
Getting louder every day

Give the music back, give the music back
Give the music back before it's gone
Give the music back, give the music back
Put the music back into the song

They drove the blues away and banished rock n' roll
They cut away the heart and sacrificed the soul
They closed the discos down and shut off MTV
They locked the music up and threw away the key

Can you feel it, can you feel it
From a million miles away
Can you hear it, can you hear it
Getting louder everyday

Give the music back, give the music back
Give the music back before it's gone
Give the music back, give the music back
Put the music back into the song

And now a silence fills the rooms where once we sang
And all is quiet where the chimes of freedom rang
Somewhere a pirate ship is crashing through the waves
Sending a signal out, a ballad to the brave

Give the music back, give the music back
Give the music back before it's gone
Give the music back, give the music back
Put the music back where it belongs

Give the music back, give the music back
Give the music back before it's gone
Give the music back, give the music back
Put the music back into the song, where it belongs

    They took the beat away, replaced it with machines
    They took the words away and threw 'em on a screen
    They turned the switches on and handed us the phones
    They blasted out our ears with endless monotone

    Can you feel it, can you feel it
    From a million miles away
    Can you hear it, can you hear it
    Getting louder every day

    Give the music back, give the music back
    Give the music back before it's gone
    Give the music back, give the music back
    Put the music back into the song

    They drove the blues away and banished rock n' roll
    They cut away the heart and sacrificed the soul
    They closed the discos down and shut off MTV
    They locked the music up and threw away the key

    Can you feel it, can you feel it
    From a million miles away
    Can you hear it, can you hear it
    Getting louder everyday

    Give the music back, give the music back
    Give the music back before it's gone
    Give the music back, give the music back
    Put the music back into the song

    And now a silence fills the rooms where once we sang
    And all is quiet where the chimes of freedom rang
    Somewhere a pirate ship is crashing through the waves
    Sending a signal out, a ballad to the brave

    Give the music back, give the music back
    Give the music back before it's gone
    Give the music back, give the music back
    Put the music back where it belongs

    Give the music back, give the music back
    Give the music back before it's gone
    Give the music back, give the music back
    Put the music back into the song, where it belongs

    Jason Barbush

    love is a word that has been taken out of context and abused

    Jason Barbush

    page is an embryo waiting to materialize

    These guys were labelled by their early success as kiddie pop. It really damaged their career. Some great songs and talent was ignored afterwards.

    Jason Barbush

    always thought this song to be about the future when music is gone worst case scenerio in ones thinking.

    Fred C

    I had never heard anything like that. I can't see what about their music would incite that kind of assessment. Do you happen to have any references to it?
