Tekst The Rhythm of Life
When I started down the street last Sunday,
Feelin' mighty low and kinda mean,
Suddenly a voice said, "Go forth, neighbor!
Spread the picture on a wider screen!"
 
And the voice said, "Neighbor there's a million reasons
Why you should be glad in all four seasons!
Hit the road, neighbor,
leave your worries and strife!
Spread the relgion of the rhythm of life."
 
For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet! 
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street, 
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
 
(To feel the rhythm of life,)
For the rhythm of life is a poweful beat, 
(To feel the powerful beat,) 
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
(To feel the tingle in your fingers,)
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
(To feel the tingle in your feet!) 
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
 
(To feel the rhythm of life,) 
For the rhythm of life is a poweful beat,
(To feel the powerful beat,)
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
(To feel the tingle in your fingers,)
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
(To feel the tingle in your feet!)
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
 
Go and spread the gospel in Milwaukee;
Take a walkie-talkie to Rocky Ridge!
All the way to Canton, then to Scranton,
Even tell it under the Manhattan Bridge.
 
You will make a new sensation,
Have a growing congregation,
Build a glowing operation here below!
Like a Pied Piper blowing,
Lead and keep the music flowing,
Keep the rhythm go, go, going; go, go, go!
 

Flip your wings and fly up high!

Flip your wings and fly up high!
Flip your wings and fly up high!
Fly, fly, fly up high!
 
You can do it if you try!
You can do it if you try!
You can do it if you try!
Try, try, try to fly!
 
Like a bird up in the sky!
Like a bird up in the sky!
Like a bird up in the sky!
Fly, fly, fly!
 
Doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi
(doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi)
Doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi
(doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi) 
Doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi, doo-bi
(doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi, doo - bi) doo! (doo!)
 
O, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
Rhythm on the inside; rhythm on the street,
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
 
(To feel the rhythm of life,)
O, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
(To feel the powerful beat,)
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
(To feel the tingle in your fingers,)
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
(To feel the tingle in your feet!)
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!
 
(To feel the rhythm of life,)
For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
(To feel the powerful beat,)
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet!
(To feel the tingle in your fingers,)
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
(To feel the tingle in your feet!)
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat! 
 
To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your life! life! life!
 
Neighbor, you've got the rhythm, rhythm, rhythm, rhythm of life!
