Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time

Get those problems out your head, put 
Your mama to bed
But don't stray too far from reality or 
You will live
In a dream world
Dreaming of things that there ain't no possibility, who
Wee, believe me
Let's have a nice grooving time, but don't go too far
From the truth in your mind
Cause you'll drink and drive, and then 
You'll fly too
High and so you'll pay the price for justa
Feeling nice

Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time

So many things to foresee, we were not
Born to live this way
We were born having fun in the jungle of grace
With plenty of food to eat, and plenty drink to drink
So you know what I mean when I say
Liberate yourself from the state that you're in
It stink, it stink, it stink
Mi sey to dance if y ou have to but don't 
Take no chance
To be deceived, yea

Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time

The bass is heavy the drummer is steady
Ooh, rhythm runs and it got you on the
Floor cry out
For more
That's the only way you gonna know for
Sure you need
Some more

Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time

Your mind is your mind, I mean your body
And your soul
Don't let material things they must not
Keep you down
A get on up, a get on up, I mean you do
What I ya say
I say do what you do, but don't get
Carried away
Let's have a good time, yes educate
Oneself
Let's have a good time, and liberate 
Oneself
Don't be no fool today don't be so cruel
Today
Let's work together yes, to build a better
Place

Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time

The bass is heavy the drummer is steady
Woe wee yes it run and got you on teh floor, cry out
For more
That's the only way you gonna know for
Sure, we need
Some more

Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Though the world is cruel and blind
Let's have a good time
Melody Makers, more Melody Makers
Let's have a good time
Melody Makers, more Melody Makers
Melody Makers
More Melody Makers, Let's have a good time
Melody Makers, More Meldoy Makers
Melody Makers
Let's have a good time, let's have a good time
Let's have a good time
