PRESSURE


V

We’re under pressure, can’t walk away to make things better, you gotta stand up and fight resistance can’t step aside it aint going to miss us no not this time, cause it comes back to you, you have the choice so let your voice be heard, OOO let it be heard.

C

Can you tell me are you feeling the funk can you tell me are you feeling the pressure

can you tell me are you feeling the funk can you tell me are you feeling the pressure

you know you got that thing I need, and it comes so easily, can you tell me are you feeling the funk can you tell me are you feeling the pressure can you tell me are you feeling the funk.

V

Now we’re back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop, But you’ve worked for hours now you get your pay, you had that taste of freedom man it’s just another faze, and we’re back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop.

C

Can you tell me are you feeling the funk can you tell me are you feeling the pressure,

can you tell me are you feeling the funk can you tell me are you feeling the pressure, You know you got that thing I need, and it comes so easily, can you tell me are you feeling the pressure, can you tell me are you feeling the funk.

Outro

Now we’re back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop,

back on track back on top got that feeling that you just can’t stop.

BEACH BUM

V

As we walk upon the waves, chilly water splashing on our feet again

you can’t walk away, because you know it aint going to be that easy

and don’t be afraid, because you know I’m going to make everything alright again some day

C

Because sometimes it’s so easy so don’t make this so hard

replace the hate with music, and I’ll show you just how far my lovin goes my lovin goes

V

But some day I’ll be a bigger man, and you’ll be their beside me, it’s time we made our stand, and I know some day I’ve got to make my escape, I’ve got to find a better way to take you home.

C

Because sometimes it’s so easy, so don’t make this so hard replace the hate with music and I’ll show you just how far my lovin goes my lovin goes

V

And by the way I think left something out, I’m going to climb to the top of this mountain, I’m going to let it all out, I’m talking about music, the kind you feel down in your soul, and no one can take that away from you, they’ll never have that control.

C

And I know sometimes it’s so easy, so don’t make this so hard,

replace the hate with music, and I’ll show you just how far my lovin goes my lovin goes.
