Jones, Quincy - Razzamatazz Lyrics

Don't believe those clouds in the sky,
Cause they'll be movin' on and the sun will shine,
If the world's been passin' you by,
Just reach for a star and you'll realize,

Got to put back all the good times that we had,
We can make it better with a little bit of Razzamatazz.

If you feel your life's in a rut,
Just come on out tonight, and we'll pull you up
Ain't no use in dragging your feet,
'Cause something's in the air that just can't be beat

[Repeat Chorus]

Bring out the rides with all those white wall tires
Let's go out cruisin' like we used to do
Get suited down, let's set the town on fire
Jump out your seat and let the music pull you through

[Repeat 5 Times:]
We can make it better with a little bit of Razzamatazz.

[Repeat Chorus]

Repeal Bridge
You can lay your soul on the line,
'Cause we can make it work if we do it right
Got to spread this message around
The people of the world should be getting down

Repeat Chorus To Fade

  3. Ed Miller

    *It would have been nice if Patti Austin had been credited ANYWHERE in the description.*

  4. Burt Lee

    When I first heard this as a kid I thought this was Michael Jackson

  5. Marion V. Brittain III

    I remember as a boy being at my dad's American Legion Installation ceremonies in Chicago listening to this classic.

    The best session guitarist

  15. Maria Erholm


  16. Garry Crayton

    My favorite Quincy Jones song. Another gem written by Rod Temperton. R.I.P. Mr. Temperton, Louis Johnson ( who's on bass) and Peggy Lipton who is singing background in this video.

    When two gifted musicians come together, it can be magical, this is that, happy 69th birthday for Ms Patti Austin (August 10, 1950) one of my favorite female musicians

  31. Melody Sanger

    PATTI AUSTIN (AUGUST 10, 2019)

  33. Oliver Jones


  34. David S

    A little love to Rod Temperton (RIP) who wrote so many hits in the 70's & 80's.

  35. Dazza

    Louis smacking that bass putting Quincey into an almost trance like state. Genius

  40. DataThread Sorceress

    This is the music of the summer nightfall drive

  41. Roosevelt McCarter

    What album was it taken from? Sounds And Stuff Like That or The Dude?

  42. Carol Snook

    Michael Jackson could have sung this song.. could have been on the off the wall album ...

  43. Chris Orr


  44. SargeZ1 Oz

    Summer of 1981....woooweee!! ;)

  45. Faz Finisher

    Your still the queen patti.

  46. Paul Moore

    this shit is fire


    I forget how lucky I (we) were to live through an era when this music was being made, just took it for granted.

  48. Bob Watson

    I miss the 80s the music, going to the mall on Saturday's, going to the clubs on Friday and Saturday night's my Jordache jeans...

  49. Lateshia Childs

    I love old school music, I got goosebumps just listening to this.

  50. Talib Akil Bey

    This is one of the toughest jams ever made!

  51. davidrpando2

    How many people realize the music playing on this video track is the original ALBUM TRACK not the video audio???? 

    The video itself is a live performance of the song - your not listening to that audio - they synced the live performance to the album soundtrack using video synchronization tools. Steve Lukather played the guitar solo on the album, and that is who you are listening to. I have no idea who the Puerto Rican is plagiarizing the guitar solo on the video, it's certainly not Steve L.!!

    I have the original album, still in it's pristine sleeve, and I know the nuances of the arrangements and words to every song on it in photographic memory. It remains one of the finest productions ever done by QJ. I learned to play the bass guitar parts of all the tracks by listening to Louis Johnson over countless hours of listening and practicing to this album.

    The music you're hearing is not from this live performance. You can see the bass player slapping away... and the drummer doing drum rolls over the Toms... and yet you don't hear it - because the audio is overlayed with the actual album track.

  52. Amanda Wilson

    Too good

  53. WenD1908

    This song always makes me happy, it's so fun and catchy:)

  54. moko yokomoko

    memorial song

  55. T.J. Smith Media

    Wow! You can hear the Rod Temperton influence on MJ’s album on this record. Almost seems like this was written for Michael. This certainly could’ve been on Off The Wall or even Thriller. But Patti killed it!

  56. AcucarFM3

    Brilliantly Remastered with Video!!!
