"Music" as written by and Yusuf Islam....
Yesterday I was on the edge
Hoping everything was going to work itself out
A good honest man doing the work of God
Trying to make things better for Him
A lover of life in a school for fools
Trying to find another way to survive

[Chorus]
New Music, Music, New Music
Sweet Music can lighten us
Can brighten the world, can save us

My friend said well, I think I found a way
To help make myself richer
I said don't you know , well, it won't be too long before
The bad ol' devil will get you back
Back, I said put back your heart and sing , sing while
You know you're still living
Sing, sing, sing , while you know there's still

[Chorus]

Take a look at the world
Think about how it will end
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined the band
Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show Oh Oh

Think about the light in your eyes
Think about what you should know
There'd be no wars in the world
If everybody joined in the show
In the show

[Chorus]

Yesterday I was on the edge
Hoping everything was going to work itself out
A good honest man doing the work of God
Trying to make things better for Him
A lover of life in a school for fools
Trying to find another way to survive

    General CommentI'm surprised no one has commented on this particular song yet. It is one of my favorite songs of his. This was one of the first song I listened to when I started listening to my dad's old vinyls. The beat just makes me feel excited.

    Obviously the song is about the effect of music on the world. It does make life more interesting. Just think of how pleasant living would be if it was a common practice for everyone to sing in the car on a daily basis :)
