Tim Hicks - What A Song Should Do Lyrics




If it don't make ya dance
It better make ya think
If it don't get you sober
It better make you drink

Yeah it's what you drive to, cry to
Make you feel alive to
When you got nothing left to lose
It better get you laughing
Or break your heart in two
That's what a song should do

It should make you go hell yeah (hell yeah) me too (me too)
Yeah, that's what a song should do
It should make you feel alright, (alright) all night (all night)
Four chords and the truth, that's what a song should do

It's that old record your daddy used to play
It's that first dance on your wedding day
Yeah, it should shape you, change you
Break you down and break through
Like you got nothing left to prove
Worthy of words on your tattoo
That's what a song should do

It should make you go hell yeah (hell yeah) me too (me too)
Yeah, that's what a song should do
It should make you feel alright, (alright) all night (all night)
Four chords and the truth, that's what a song should do
It should make you feel alright, (alright) all night (all night)
With four chords and the truth

Yeah it should be the soundtrack singing every moment of your life
The beat that'll keep the party goin' till the sunrise
Can't help but sing along to...
It should make you go hell yeah, oh me too
That's what a song should do
Oh yeah

(Whoa-whoa, whoa-oh)
That's what a song should do
That's what a song should do
(Whoa-whoa, whoa-oh)
It should mean something to you

So what keeps it going
What puts that flicker in your flame
And when your candle burns out
What song they gonna play
What song they gonna play

It should make you go hell yeah (hell yeah) me too (me too)
Yeah, that's what a song should do, whoa
It should make you feel alright (alright) all night (all night)
With four chords and the truth, yeah

It should be the soundtrack singing every moment of your life
The beat that'll keep the party goin' till the sunrise
Can't help but sing along to
It should make you go hell yeah, oh me too
That's what a song should do

    "oh wow, the emotions, the feelings, the music". yeah great. but when you make your break, ATTEMPTING country, screamin' about "hell yeah, drink a beer, hell-raisin'", and all that wanna-be non-sense, then get all sucky and whiny like this fuckin song, you're a pathetic sell-out. if you can even call it that, cause you weren't country to begin with

  41. Tim Hicks

    I’m so excited for you guys to see this video. I’m really proud of this song and its message, and I wanted to make a video that reflects that. Each of the mini stories represent some of the best feelings that music should give you when you hear it. We couldn’t possibly cover the range of emotions that music can make us feel in one song, but we did our best to highlight a few of the good ones throughout the video. I especially like the little guy stealing a record and sneaking into his brother’s room to listen to it! I spent a lot of time listening to music like that when I was his age. Hope you enjoy it and most of all, I hope it makes you go “Hell Yeah!”.
