“Listen to the Band” (prev. unissued version) Lyrics

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

Play the drum a little louder
Tell me I can live without her
If I only listen to the band
Listen to the band

Weren’t they good?
They made me happy
I think I can make it alone

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

Play the drum a little louder
Tell them they can live without her
If they only listen to the band
Listen to the band

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

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

Play the drums a little bit louder
Tell us we can live without her
Now that we have listened to the band

Listen to the band
