Join Together – Lyrics:

When you hear the sound a coming
Hear the drummer drumming
I want you to join together with the band
We don’t move in any ‘ticular direction
And we don’t make no collection
Won’t you to join together with the band?

Do you really think I care
What you eat or what you wear?
We want you to join together with the band
There’s a million ways to laugh
And every one’s a path
Come on and join together with the band

Everybody join (join together)
I want you to join (join together)
A-come on and (join together with the band)
We need you to (join together)
Come on and (join together)
Come on and (join together with the band)

You don’t have to play
You can follow or lead the way
I want you to join together with the band
We don’t know where we’re going
But the season’s right for knowing
I want you to join together with the band

It’s the singer not the song
That makes the music move along
I want you to join together with the band
This is the biggest band you’ll find
It’s as deep as it is wide
Come on and join together with the band

Hey-hey-hey-hey-hey (join together)
Well, everybody come on (join together)
Come on and join (join together with the band)
We need you to (join together)
Everybody, come on (join together)
Hey, hey, hey (join together with the band)
Join together with the band
