Be in the Band lyrics

1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4!
We’re gonna be in the band
We’re gonna be in the band

Hey everybody have you heard the news?
The band’s gettin’ ready can you feel the groove?
Come on clap along you can join the fun
Jump out your seat, move your feet to the beat of the drum

PLAY! Smooth grooves on the saxophone
SING! Like a star on the microphone
MOVE! Your funky fingers on the bass guitar
You can join in whoever you are

We’re gonna be in the band
We’re gonna be in the ba-a-and
We’re gonna be in the band
So clap your hands

You can use anything to make a sound
We can play quietly, OR WE CAN PLAY LOUD!
Girls and boys bring the noise, feel the rhythm and rhyme
Come on get your friends together now it’s music time

PLAY! Tambourine shake and rattle along
SING! How you like, just be part of the song
MOVE! Yourself in time to the melody
Everybody join in harmony

We’re gonna be in the band
We’re gonna be in the ba–a-and
We’re gonna be in the band
We’re gonna be in the ba-a-and

We’re gonna be in the band
We’re gonna be in the ba-a-and
We’re gonna be in the band
So clap your hands
So clap your hands
So clap your hands
