"Hey You" as written by Leroy Carr, Tre Vant Jermaine Hardson, Romye Robinson, Derrick L. Stewart and Emandu Wilcox....
Hey you, you say you want to change the world
It's alright, with me there's no regret
It's my turn, the circle game has brought me here
And I won't let down 'till every song is set
You realize now
You should have tried now, oooh
The music's gone now
You lost it somehow
Hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la
Wooo, sha la la
Hey you, you say the race is much too fast
It's okay, with me I'm keeping pace
It's my game, the music is inside my head
For every one on top there's one who can't retrace
You realize now
You should have tried now, oooh ooh
The music's gone now, you'll find out
You lost it somehow
Hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la la
Wooo, sha la la la
You realize now oooh
You could have died now, oooh
The music's gone now
You lost it somehow
Hey you, hey you, sha lalala
Hey you, sha lalala
Wooo, sha la la
Wooo, sha la la
Sha lalala, hey you, hey you, hey you
Sha lalala, ba-ba-ba-baby's stupid (?)
Sha lalala, no time, no time left, no time
Sha lalala, don't let me down, don't let me down
(music and singing fades out)

    General CommentOh, BTW, I don't think it's "ba-ba-ba-baby's stupid" at the end, but "baby, it's too late". That's just what it sounds like to me, and I've been listening to this song since I was 5.

    My InterpretationI think this is about a failed relationship, and it's all the woman's fault. "You should have tried now, the music's died now, you lost it somehow, etc.

    General CommentThis song was written by Randy when he wasnt too happy with Burton Cummings. BTO and the Guess Who were competing bands on the airwaves at the time. It was the differences in the outlook they had on life when they were in the Guess Who together.
