JJ Cale - A Thing Going On Lyrics

Look here we got a thing going on
Never fear we got a thing going on
Ain't nothing to it
Got to get down and do it
I tell you the truth
Ain't jivin' you

Lord, Lord, we got a thing going on

Something in this place
It's on every face
It's catching fever
You just can't leave her

Look here we got a thing going on
Never fear we got a thing going on

What we gonna do
We're gonna roll through
Do it right, keep it light

Lord, Lord, we got a thing going on
Look here we got a thing going on
Never fear we got a thing going on

  21. nocab28

    Beautiful music but the voice always sounds very quiet. I guess its old. Im not bashing the music at all I actually love it.

    carole adams

    Thats how he sings. He said he sang softly so people would turn it up loud.

    Purple Hayes

    Talent,! Style ! No screaming, contortions needed!

    Keep it light , do it right,1st I,ve heard that for maybe 20years,big fan of jj Cale,s music,and a brilliant guitarist, r I p.

  24. oleole52

    His music sounds simple,until you listen to it closely.Often,Christine is playing rhythm,and JJ is playing two,sometimes three guitar parts over top of her.It's one of the reasons that anyone can play the chords,but no one sounds like him.

    Kitten Katt

    Mark Knopfler sounds like him.

  25. Nikolay Lachev

    Great Music and Perfect clip !

  26. Ricardo Nunes

    JJ Cale was a capital singer , songwriter , musician and essentially a human being with capital H , artists like him never die . Ramble on JJ 

  27. Mallika Chauhan

    Mellow, smooth, perfect. He don't need no tricks. He is perfection :)
