did you ever get up on the wrong side of bed
with an aching head and just fall apart?
you're running late, the boss is bitching
it's cold outside and the car won't start
well, i don't mean to bitch i swear
cause we've all got our cross to bare

but when i hear the music
all my troubles just fade away
when i hear the music
let it play, gotta let it play
when i hear the music
lord have mercy, i can see the day
when i hear the music
let it play, gotta let it play

life's just rented space getting laid to waste
when the lines on my face say i'm growing older
just a stitch in time gonna save my mind
when the weight of the world lies on my shoulder
well, soon i won't have a place to fit
but i'll cross that bridge when i come to it

cause when i hear the music
all my troubles just fade away
when i hear the music
let it play, gotta let it play
when i hear the music
lord have mercy, i can see the day
when i hear the music
let it play, gotta let it play

    General CommentUh yeah.... this song is called LET IT PLAY!! Seems to me that if you're gonna submit a song, you should at least go through the trouble of GIVING IT THE CORRECT TITLE...
