“Listen to the Band” Lyrics

Hey, hey, mercy woman
Plays a song and no one listens
I need help, I’m falling again

Yeah, play the drum a little bit louder
Tell me I can live without her
If I only listen to the band
Listen to the band

Whoa, weren’t they good?
They made me happy
I think I can make it alone

Oh, oh, mercy woman
Plays a song and no one listens
I need help, I’m falling again

Yeah, play the drum a little bit louder
Tell me I can live without her
If I only listen to the band
Listen to the band

Oh, weren’t they good?
They made me happy
I think I can make it alone

Yeah, mercy woman
Plays a song and no one listen
I need help, I’m falling again

Yeah, play the drums a little bit louder
Tell me I can live without her
Now that I have listened to the band
Play

Oh, weren’t they good?
They made me happy
I think I can make it alone

Oh, oh, mercy woman
Plays a song and nobody listenin’
I need help, I’m falling again, woo

Yeah, play the drum a little louder, Johnny
Tell me I can live without her
Now that I have listened to the band
My, my
