The Rhythm of Life

When I started down the street last Sunday,
Feeling mighty low and kind’a mean,
Suddenly a voice said, “Go forth, neighbour
Spread the picture on a wider screen!”

And the voice said “Neighbour, there’s a million reasons
Why you should be glad in all four seasons
Hit the road neighbour, leave your worries and strife
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life.

For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!

             To feel the rhythm of life
For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
            To feel the powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
             To feel the tingle in your fingers
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
             To feel the tingle in your feet!
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!

             To feel the rhythm of life
For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
          Go, go go
            To feel the powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
          Go, go go
             To feel the tingle in your fingers
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
         Tell them everything ;
             To feel the tingle in your feet!
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
          you know

Go and spread the gospel in Milwaukee;
Take a walkie talkie to the Rocky Ridge!
All the way to Canton, then to Scranton,
Even tell it under the Manhattan Bridge.

You will make a new sensation,
Have a growing congregation
Build a glowing operation here below!
Like Pied Piper blowing
Lead and keep the music flowing,
Keep the rhythm go, go going; go, go, go.

   You will make a new sensation
Like a Pied Piper blowing
   Have a growing congregation
Lead and keep the music flowing,
   Build a glowing operation here below! Go go!
Keep the rhythm go, go going; go, go, go.

  Like a Pied Piper blowing, lead and keep the music flowing,
   Keep the rhythm go go going; go go go.

Flip your wings and fly up high!
Flip your wings and fly up high
Flip your wings and fly up high!
Fly, fly, fly up high!

You can do it if you try!
You can do it if you try!
You can do it if you try!
Try, try, try to fly!

Like a bird up in the sky!
Like a bird up in the sky!
Like a bird up in the sky!
Fly, fly, fly!

Doobie……………………………………..

O, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!

      To feel the rhythm of life
O, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
      To feel the powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
      To feel the tingle in your fingers
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
     To feel the tingle in your feet!
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!

      To feel the rhythm of life
O, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
   Go, go, go
      To feel the powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
   Go, go, go
      To feel the tingle in your fingers
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
   Tell them everything
       To feel the tingle in your feet!
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
   You know.

To feel the rhythm of life,
to feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your life!  life! life!

Neighbour, you’ve got the rhythm, rhythm, rhythm, rhythm of life!’
