  • (This one goes out to you and yours, worldwide)

    I say hey, I'll be gone today
    But I'll be back all around the way
    It seems like everywhere I go
    The more I see, the less I know
    But I know one thing
    That I love you (baby girl)
    I love you, I love you, I love you

    I've been a lot of places all around the way
    I've seen a lot of joy and I've seen a lot of pain
    But I don't want to write a love song for the world
    I just want to write a song about a boy and a girl

    Junkies on the corner always calling my name
    And the kids on the corner playing ghetto games
    When I saw you getting down, well, I hope it was you
    And when I look into your eyes I knew it was true

    I say hey, I'll be gone today
    But I'll be back all around the way
    It seems like everywhere I go
    The more I see, the less I know
    But I know one thing
    That I love you (baby girl)
    I love you, I love you, I love you

    Now I'm not a highly metaphysical man
    But I know when the stars are aligned you can
    Bump into a person in the middle of the road
    Look into their eyes and you suddenly know

    Rocking in the dance hall moving with you
    Dancing in the night in the middle of June
    My momma told me don't lose you
    'Cause the best luck I had was you

    I say hey, I'll be gone today
    But I'll be back all around the way
    It seems like everywhere I go
    The more I see, the less I know
    But I know one thing
    That I love you (baby girl)
    I love you, I love you, I love you

    And I say, rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
    I say, hey momma, hey momma, close to you
    Rocking in the dance hall, moving with you
    I say, hey poppa, hey poppa, close to you
    Rocking in the dance hall moving with you
    I say, hey momma, hey momma, close to you
    Rocking in the dance hall moving with you
    I say, hey momma, hey momma, hey momma, hey momma
    Hey momma, hey momma, hey momma, hey momma

    My momma told me don't lose you
    'Cause the best luck I had was you
    And I know one thing
    That I love you

    I say hey, I'll be gone today
    But I'll be back all around the way
    It seems like everywhere I go
    The more I see, the less I know
    I say hey, I'll be gone today
    But I'll be back all around the way
    It seems like everywhere I go
    The more I see, the less I know
    But I know one thing
    That I love you (baby girl)
    I love you, I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you, I love you
    I love you, I love you, I love you

    (Rocking in the dance hall moving with you)
    (I say, hey poppa, hey poppa)
    (Hey momma, hey momma)
    (Rocking in the dance hall moving with you)
    (Come on, hey poppa, hey poppa) Writer/s: Carl Rogers Young, Michael Franti
