Back in the Day Lyrics

What we're gonna do right here is go back

 

Way back' back into time

 

Back in the day

They used to say

Play that song' get it going and the band played

And still today

You hear us say

Play that song all night long' Mr DJ

Though times have changed'

It's still the same

We all need a minute to get away

So let it go and feel the flow

If you've got soul' let the world know

We're gonna set the mood (set the mood off right)

Gonna go back to an old school groove (go back to an old school groove)

Gonna rewind to another time

When the originators innovators were alive' yeah

Here we say now

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day

And Coltrane

Turn up your 45's bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday

Open your mind

Enjoy the ride'

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back' take it

Back in the day' back in the day

Oh baby

Back in the day' back in the day

Won't you take me back

Back in the day' back in the day

I'll do it

Back in the day' back in the day

Ohh yeah

Y'all remember back in the day

You dig

Ray Charles

 

Nat King Cole

 

Miles Davis

 

Ella Fitzgerald

 

Now "Chain Of Fools" and "Respect"

Was the anthem of a woman' Aretha said

"What's Going On"' "Let's Get It On"

Such classic songs' don't forget them

 

Though times have changed

They still remain my inspiration everyday

So give it up for the ones

Who came before' opened up that door

We're gonna (we're gonna)

Set the mood (set the mood)

Gonna go back (go back)

To an old school groove (to an old school groove)

Gonna rewind (rewind)

To another time (another time)

When the originators' innovators were alive

 

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day' and Coltrane

Turn up your 45's' bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday(the sound and vibe of yesterday)

Open your mind' enjoy the ride'

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back' take it

Back in the day' back in the day

Oh baby

Back in the day' back in the day

Won't you take me back

Back in the day' back in the day

I'll do it

Back in the day' back in the day

So get up' re-live it

Gotta let yourself flow

Give up your praise

Come celebrate

 

Just get up' get on it

Get yourself on the floor

Don't back away (don't back away)

Come celebrate (gonna celebrate' yeah)

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day' and Coltrane

Turn up your 45's' bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday(the sound and vibe' alright yeah)

Open your mind' enjoy the ride'

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Takin' back in the day' day

Back in the day' back in the day

Back in the day' back in the day

Back in the day' back in the day

Back in the day' back in the day

Oh baby'

 

I'll do it

 

Oh baby'

 

Ohh yeah
