Jimmy James Lyrics
Jump to:
"This Next One, Is The First Song On Our New Album..."

People How You Doin' There's A New Day Dawnin'
For The Earth Mother It's A Brand New Mornin'
For Such A Long While There's Been Such A Longin'
But Now The Sun Is Shinin' Let's Roll Back The Awnin'

"Move - Move Your Body"

This Is A Type Of Kinda' Like A Formal Dedication
Givin' Out A Shout For Much Inspiration
All I Ever Really Want To Do Is Get Nice
Get Loose And Goof My Little Slice Of Life
Sendin' Out Love To All Corners Of The Land
I Jump Up On The Stage And Take The Mic In My Hand
I'm Not Playin' The Roll Just Being Who I Am
And If You Try To Dis Me I Couldn't Give A Damn

'Cause I'm.. "Rockin'"
"Rockin'" "Rockin'" "Rock-Rock-Rockin'"
"Yea Get Down"
"Rock-Rock-Rock On" "Rock-Rock-Rock On"
"Rock-Rock-Rock On"
"Mic-Mic-Mic Control" "Mic-Mic-Mic Control"
"Mic-Mic-Mic-Mic Control"

Bass From The Back Of My Car Feels Soothin'
A Bazookas Is What I'm Usin'
I'm Mike D And It's Been Proven
I Love It When I See The Party People Just Movin'
Strapped On The Bar Goggles And What Did I See
But The Music Brought The People Into Harmony

"Ah For The Black's, Puerto Rico's And The White People Too"
