"Keep On Moving" as written by Walter Carl Becker, Donald Jay Fagen, Tom Dinsdale and Simon Franks....
One two
Since the day I've spoken
My home was broken to
When the door was open
I was out and smokin'
I didn't look for trouble
Trouble looked for me
But that'd be a lie you'd see
Me and trouble got along just fine
Out getting pissed on the beer and the wine
It didn't take long before I met people just like me
Feel plot and foxy
We made a little team, if you know what I mean
Checked a few scenes
Seen a few fiends
Sprayed a few trains
Played a few games
Hung around with faces and names
Went out with pretty young dames
Young love and young flames

It's alright, just keep on moving

Wasn't nothing but sorrow in the house
I wasn't there
I went out
With the boys just hanging about
Playing round and acting like louts
In them days overcoming our doubts
Serving up just to keep a little clout
Ploty introduced me to stealing
I knew ol' mothers words now had lost their meaning
Just stole paint to put up my name
Pretty soon it all seemed the same
So this was my brand new game
Stone island, and Ralph Lauren
That's what we were wearing then
I loved them days so I look back again
The club scene was banging at the time
House and garish, pills and white lines
Kurosawa little strain on the mind
We dealt with it
We were fine
It felt like it was our time
Seven, and the eight to the nine
Hit ten, now let's climb
Hit ten, now it's our time (cos it's our time)

It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, alright, so let's make it right

It's alright, alright, so let's make it right
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving

We all wanna rise up in the world
Stay in and make love with our girls
When I look back it's all just a whirl
And when I think back it's all just a swirl
My mind moves to the music game
And that's where my future seemed to lay
Tommy d was the next man's name
We made a few tracks and had a little fame
But we didn't make that for fame
We made a few tracks for mankind to pay (play)
And that's true, what more can I say
I'm not in the game to play
I'm just in the game to say
Everything's gonna be okay
Don't stress cos there's always a way
Doesn't matter if your jeans get frayed
Cos there's no such word as afraid
It took awhile but we made the high grade
It took awhile but we made the high grade

It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, just keep on moving
It's alright, alright, so let's make it right
It's alright, alright, so let's make it right
