Lyrics I DON'T KNOW WHY
I LOVE YA LIKE I DO,

Lyrics RHYTHM IS OUR BUSINESS,
RHYTHM IS WHAT WE SELL,
RHYTHM IS OUR BUSINESS,
BUSINESS SURE IS SWELL.
NOW, IF YOU BLUE,
RHYTHM'S WHAT YOU NEED,
IF YOU GOT RHYTHM
YOU'RE SURE TO SUCCEED.
RHYTHM IS OUR BUSINESS,
BUSINESS SURE IS SWELL..

HE'S THE DRUMMER MAN,
IN THE BAND,
CROSBY'S ON THE DRUMS,
IN THE BAND.
OH, WHEN HE DOES TRICKS
WITH THE STICKS
THE BOYS IN THE BAND
ALL PLAY HOT LICKS.

HE PLAYS SAXOPHONE
IN THE BAND,
JOE PLAYS THE SAXOPHONE
IN THE BAND.
OH, WHEN HE GOES UP
THAT SCALE.....

MOSE PLAYS ON THE BASS
IN THE BAND,
MOSE PLAYS ON THAT BASS
IN THE BAND.
NOW WHEN HE PICKS
ON THOSE STRINGS,
HAPPINESS TO YOU HE BRINGS.

HE BLOWS ON THE TRUMPET
IN THE BAND,
STEVE BLOWS ON THAT TRUMPET
IN THE BAND.
OH, HE'S THE GUY,
HITS `EM HIGH
MAKES YOU THINK
HE'S IN THE SKY.

OH, RHYTHM IS OUR BUSINESS!

Lyrics [verse 1]:
(He:) EV'RY DAY
IT SEEMS LIKE A YEAR,
SWEETHEART,
WHEN YOU ARE NOT NEAR.
(She:) ALL THAT YOU CLAIM
MUST BE TRUE

FOR I'M JUST THE SAME AS YOU.

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.

[verse 2]:
(He:) STARS ARE SMILING AT ME
FROM YOUR EYES,
(She:) SUNBEAMS NOW
THERE WILL BE IN THE SKIES.
(He:) TELL ME
THAT YOU WILL BE TRUE!
(She:) THAT WILL ALL
DEPEND ON YOU,
DEAR!

[Chorus]:
SOMETIMES I'M HAPPY,
SOMETIMES I'M BLUE,
MY DISPOSITION
DEPENDS ON YOU,
I NEVER MIND
THE RAIN FROM THE SKIES,
IF I CAN FIND
THE SUN IN YOUR EYES.
SOMETIMES I LOVE YOU,
SOMETIMES I HATE YOU,
BUT WHEN I HATE YOU,
IT'S 'CAUSE I LOVE YOU,
THAT'S HOW I AM,
SO WHAT CAN I DO?
I'M HAPPY
WHEN I'M WITH YOU.
