"Poppa Can Play" as written by and William Champlin....
Tell your mama, tell your sister
Everybody spread the news
If you’re wonderin’ ‘bout the change in Poppa
Poppa’s learned to play the blues

Poppa was looking for a hobby
Then he went to hear B.B. King
He drank some apple juice in the lobby
Now Poppa’s doing a whole new thing

When he sings his song
Makes you want to sing along
When he bends the notes
Then the whole room floats away
Poppa play, Poppa play

And it’s all just because he digs it that way
All just because my Poppa can play, let him play

It’s been six months since we’ve seen Poppa
What happened to our dear old Dad?
He split off up to New York
With his three piece rock and roll band
What happened to our dear old Dad?

And it’s all just because he digs it that way
All just because my Poppa can play, let him play
