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 ONE O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING,
SHOUTS THE TIMEPIECE
ON THE SHELF,
ONE O'CLOCK EVERY MORNING
FINDS ME SITTING BY MYSELF.
THERE'S MUCH
THAT'S WORTH
REMEMBERING,
EXCEPT FOR JUST ONE THING:

WHAT GOOD IS A DREAM,
A PLAN OR A SCHEME,
THE RAINBOW
THAT YOU PURSUE?
IT'S EVERYTHING
AND IT'S NOTHING,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.
HOW EAGER YOU ARE
TO GET TO THAT STAR,
BUT AFTER
THE JOURNEY'S THROUGH,
YOU'RE ONLY
A LONELY DREAMER,
WITHOUT SOMEONE
TO TELL IT TO.

THERE'LL BE BIRTHDAYS,
HARD TO GET
THROUGH DAYS,
DAYS WHEN
YOU JUST WANT TO DIE.
SOON YOU'RE OLDER
AND THE WORLD'S
COLDER,
WHEN THERE'S NO SHOULDER
TO CRY ON.

CASTLES IN AIR
ARE EMPTY AND BARE
WITH NO ONE
TO SHARE THE VIEW,
THE MOONLIGHT
IS MERELY MOONLIGHT,
THERE'S NO MAGIC
IN I LOVE YOU,
WITHOUT SOMEONE,
SOMEONE TO TELL IT TO.
