Ringo Starr — Occapella lyrics

By Allen Toussaint

Groovy!

Ah, there's music in the streets and there's music in the air.
A little ol' soul beat, and there's dancin' ev'rywhere.
I would tell the whole world, tell 'em if I could,
To add A little song into each life,
Oh, it's A-Finger snappin' good.

Oh -
Oh -

Ah, pardon me, boys, but could you use it?
We're gonna make A little music.
You got soul, now don'tcha lose it,
We're gonna make A little music.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just A-Singin' occapella.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just A-Singin' occapella.

Oh -
Oh -

Hey!

Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah, ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah,
Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah, ah-Ah-Ah-Ah-Ah.
Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da - jabba dabba dabba dabba di dah.
Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da-Da - jabba dabba dabba dabba di dah.

Oh, there's dancin' in the streets and there's music in the air.
A little ol' soul beat, and there's dancin' ev'rywhere.
I would tell the whole world, tell 'em if I could,
To add A little song into each life,
You know it's finger poppin' good.

Oh -
Oh -

Pardon me, boys, but could you use it?
We're gonna make A little music.
You got soul, now don'tcha lose it,
We're gonna make A little music.
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just A-Singin' occapella,
Ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
We gon' just A-Singin' occapella.

I said, ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
Ev'rybody's singin' occapella.
I said, ev'rything's gonna be mellow,
Ev'rybody's singin' occapella.
Ev'rything's gonna be.
