  • I'VE GOT THE MUSIC IN ME
    The Kiki Dee Band
    (KIKI DEE)
    Ain't got no trouble in my life,
    No foolish dream to make me cry.
    I'm never frightened or worried,
    I know I'll always get by.
    I heat up (I heat up)
    I cool down (I cool down)
    When something gets in my way I go round it.
    Don't let life get me down
    Gonna take life the way that I found it.
    CHORUS
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    They say that life is a circle (circle)
    But that ain't the way that I've found it.
    Gonna move in a straight line (ooh)
    Keeping my feet firmly on the ground.
    I heat up (I heat up)
    I cool down (I cool down)
    I got words in my head so I say them.
    Don't let life get me down,
    Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.
    CHORUS
    Feel funky
    Feel good
    Gonna tell ya
    I'm in the neighbourhood
    Gonna fly like a bird on the wing
    Hold on to your hat honey,
    Sing, sing, sing, sing
    Heat up, cool down (cool down)
    I got words in my head so I say them
    Don't let life get me down (Don't let it get ya down)
    Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.
    CHORUS x2
    Ain't got no trouble in my life,
    No foolish dream to make me cry.
    I'm never frightened I'm never worried,
    I know, I know I'll always get by.
    I got the music
    Pretty music
    I got the music
    In me
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get you down
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get you down
    Ha, ha, ha, ha
    CHORUS
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get you down
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    I got the music in me
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get ya down
    Don't let it get you down
    (Repeat to fade)
