Cut Your Groove

  • Scuff mark scars on the kitchen floor
    A decade of dancing dug into the boards
    Every scratch, part of the story it tells
    A pocketknife blade in my backyard tree
    Two names in a heart for the world to see
    Might be crude but it's a symphony
    Of L-O-V-E

    You got a melody, make 'em hear it
    Shout it out loud and clear
    'Til you rattle the walls of the atmosphere
    Start right now, start right here
    'Cause the world keeps spinnin' like an old Victrola
    'Round and 'round, over and over
    When the needle drops down, what you gonna do?
    Life is a record, better cut your groove
    Cut your groove

    A lot of the time you're gonna be on top
    But when you fall off the charts, don't let it stop you
    'Cause part of the charm is the crack on a pop and a hiss
    There's a song for the taste of your first kiss
    A tune for the blues you feel when you miss
    The one you love you can't be with
    It's the crazy truth, it's the crazy truth

    You got a melody, make 'em hear it
    Shout it out loud and clear
    'Til you rattle the walls of the atmosphere
    Start right now, start right here
    'Cause the world keeps spinnin' like an old Victrola
    'Round and 'round, over and over
    When the needle drops down, what you gonna do?
    Life is a record, better cut your groove
    Cut your groove

    Don't matter what it is as long as it's true
    It'll be unique to the story of you
    You don't have to be famous, to be famous
    A-side, B-side, let it all play
    Don't let the music just fade away
    You don't have to be famous, to be famous, no

    You got a melody, make 'em hear it
    Shout it out loud and clear
    'Til you rattle the walls of the atmosphere
    Start right now, start right here
    'Cause the world keeps spinnin' like an old Victrola
    'Round and 'round, over and over
    When the needle drops down, what you gonna do?
    Life is a record, better cut your groove
