"You Can All Join In" as written by and Dave Mason....
Here's a little song you can all join in with,
It's very simple and I hope it's new.
Make your own words up if you want to
Any old words that you think will do, yeah.
Yellow, blue, what'll I do?
Maybe I'll just sit here thinking.
Black, white, stop the fight.
Does one of these colours ever bother you?

Here's a little dance you can all join in with,
It's very simple and I hope it's new.
Make your own steps up if you want to
Any old steps that you think will do.
Left, right, don't get uptight.
Keep in line and you'll be alright.
Clap hands, move around
And make sure no one puts you down.

Here's a little world you can all join in with,
It's very simple and I hope it's new.
Make your own life up if you want to
Any old life that you think will do.
Love, yeah, it's nothing new.
There's someone much worse than you are.
Help me set them free,
Just be what you want to be.

    General CommentGreat song, I have good memories listening to this album as a kid (their self-titled one).

    Traffic is one of the best bands of all time and it's a shame no one has posted a comment yet.

    I think this song may have been poking fun at some emergin pop music from the late 60s to early 70s, accusing some acts of selling out and putting in whatever the hell lyrics sounded good for the radio, without any real feeling behind them. That's just a guess.

    My InterpretationWonderful song that makes you want to get up and move around! I guess Dave Mason starts the song out as a sort of shuffle, where you can make up the words and dance as you go along. By the third verse the song is in fact about being "who you want to be". And after all, life is just like a dance.
