Don't you worry, cos it's alright
Don't you worry, child of the night
Cos in the morning,
Come with the new day sun
Love - an everlasting light

We are the seed of the new breed
We'll succeed our time has come
We are the new
These words are true
Let the light of love shine through
It's alright (X 3)
It's really alright
It's alright
It's really alright

Alright, alright
Everything's gonna be alright (x 3)
Alright, alright it's ready alright

No don't be so sad
Cos love is by your side
No don't be so sad
Cos life is 2 short 2 live
No don't be so sad
I'll be mad if you're this
It's alright
The message that I give

Listen 2 me
Dreams can come true
Call out 2 love
It will answer you
4 get your trouble and smile
Let your heart speak awhile
Let the light of love shine through

Take your nightmare
Change 2 dream
Flow in the rhythm like a stream
Fear no evil, fear no man
Open up the mind
And the beats goes bam
Rhythm rolling, running smooth
Just like a little love
Sent 2 soothe
Ease the pressure, let it all go
Don't be afraid let the feeling flow

    General Comment'It's Alright' maintained East 17's relentless assault on the UK pop charts and dance floors in 1993, yet one that has been overlooked somewhat for the sublime lyrical prose it holds within in favour of the epic and rousing Thunder. Indeed beneath that masterful beat and Brian Harvey's soulful voice there's a statement, a message. The message that East 17 give is that 'it will be alright'.

    The 90s may now seem like a magical land and a rich fertile backdrop to which some of the greatest musicians of the century thrived but it was a time of great uncertainty. Mortimer the astute and conscious beatmaster and lyricist plugged into this growing feeling. He saw the uncertainty around him grow as the old certainties of the past and crumbled away. People were restless looking to politicians, religion, and the TV for something concrete to believe in. The masses needed reassurance that the dogmatic rhetoric of politics and religion couldn't give. Mortimer took this upon himself and penned 'It's alright (X 3), It's really alright, It's alright, It's really alright. Alright, alright. Everything's gonna be alright (x 3). Alright, alright it's really alright'. Those kind, thoughtful, insightful words soothed a nervous and anxious public. People heard this song on the radio at school, at home, at work and spontaneously started dancing in the street. Everything was really alright.
