Lyrics SHOUT!
LET IT BE CELEBRATED,
STAND
AND SLAP
YOUR TAMBOURINES.
BLUES
HAVE BEEN ANNIHILATED,
BLOWN
TO SMITHEREENS.
WHEN I THOUGHT
I'D MEET MY MAKER,
WHEN THEY SAID,
'YOU'RE GONNA FRY!'
GOD SUPPLIED
A CIRCUIT BREAKER,
GIVING ME ANOTHER TRY.
SKIES WERE DARK
AND DAYS WERE GLOOMY,
THOUGHT I DIDN'T
STAND A CHANCE.
NOW THAT GOOD LUCK'S
COMING TO ME,
BOTH MY FEET
CAN'T WAIT TO DANCE.
SHOUT!
AND MAKE LIKE THUNDER,
STAMP
UNTIL YOU BURN THE FLOOR.
CHEER
AND MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD WONDER
'WHAT'S DAT CHEERING FOR?'
SHOUT!
LET IT BE CELEBRATED,
STAND
AND SLAP
YOUR TAMBOURINES.
BLUES
HAVE BEEN ANNIHILATED,
BLOWN
TO SMITHEREENS.
WHEN I THOUGHT
I'D MEET MY MAKER,
WHEN THEY SAID,
'YOU'RE GONNA FRY!'
GOD SUPPLIED
A CIRCUIT BREAKER,
GOT ME ANOTHER TRY!
