"Smokin'" as written by and Hank Mobley....
We're gonna play you a song, a little bit of rock-n-roll
You gotta let yourself go, the band's gonna take control
We're gettin' off today
We'll pick you up and take you away
Get down tonight

Smokin', smokin'
We're cookin' tonight, just keep on tokin'
Smokin', Smokin'
I feel alright, mamma I'm not jokin', yeah

Get your feet to the floor, everybody rock and roll
You've got nothing to lose just the rhythm and blues, that's all, yeah
We're gonna feel ok
We'll pick you up and take you away
Get down tonight

Smokin', Smokin'
We're cookin' tonight, just keep on tokin'
Smokin', Smokin'
I feel alright, mamma I'm not jokin', yeah

Everyone's jumpin', dancin' to the boogie tonight
Clap your hands, move your feet
If you don't you know it won't seem right
We're gettin' off today
We'll pick you up and take you away
Get down tonight

We're gettin' off today
We'll pick you up take you away
Get down tonight, well alright

    General CommentThe organ solo is vintage 70s, reminds me a bit of Seger's "Live Bullet."

    General CommentI love Boston and this is my fav song of theirs. The organ solo is awesome! I love to listen to this song when I exercise. It just has a "get up and get moving" feel to it.

    General CommentSurprisingly my FAVORITE Boston track. We used to party hard in rock quarries to Boston; Styx; The Eagles; and the other greats of that time. With one bottle of cheap Boones' Farm wine under each arm and a doobie in the mouth, we had a BLAST. Boston will always symbolize my high school years...what a GREAT debut album (the best!).
