(Some familiar faces. Holding Back The River)

Stop your pretending
Listen to what I gotta say
Now your head?s ran away
Only here for a day
Now that grave I?ve just made
For me when I get laid, yeah, baby
When I get laid, yeah, listen up.

Won?t you wait a while
Move to the blue
Sometimes people don?t wanna say
Old time dancers don?t die die that way
See that grave I?ve just made
It?s for me when I get paid

Somebody?s gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you, yeah
Somebody but you

Do you love and surrender
Sometimes I don?t feel I can remember
Now I think it?s fair to mention
About the days when I get laid

Somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody like you, yeah

Yeah, yeah

I told you all to listen
But you never liked what you heard
Now I take what I am given
This may sound absurd
Now I stare with double vision
And starting the transition, now
Now baby, hey

Where?s Jimmy Jazz

Where?s Jimmy
Where?s Jimmy
Where?s Jimmy Jazz

Oh I told you to listen
Yes I told you all to listen

Somebody?s gotta hold back the river, c?mon
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river, yeah
Somebody like you
Somebody?s gotta hold back the river
YEAH!

Yeah, yeah, yeah
