Let That Tape Keep Rolling
Words and Music by: Larry Norman (My brother just flew in from America) (Would you all welcome Larry Norman) I woke up in the morning, I said a morning prayer I washed my face with soap, I ran my fingers through my hair I went down to the studio on Hollywood and Vine The clock said seven thirty, well I made it just in time I greeted the musician, I grabbed the nearest chair I started playing my guitar and told the engineer. C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, c'mon. Well the first song that we cut was called "Lonely by myself" I'll do the vocal later, you can leave it on the shelf The second song we cut was called "No More LSD" The session's getting better, I'm as happy as can be The last song took us seven takes, the first one took us ten Let's take it from the top and give it all we got. C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, I can't hear you C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon! Do you hear me singing on your record machine? The piano's banging, the guitar's twanging The water cooler is clanging, the light bulb's hanging The music's playing, the production's clean Cross fade all the tracks and don't leave no spaces in between. C'mon, c'mon, let that tape C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon. I started out ten years ago, my guitar in my hand I took the message in my heart and played it with the band I went down to Capitol Record to record "Upon This Rock" I wanted to say something, I just let the music talk I know where I am going, I know who I must be I don't care how long it takes, there's lots of things to see. C'mon, c'mon, let the night keep rolling C'mon, c'mon, let your faith keep growing C'mon, c'mon, let your love keep showing C'mon, c'mon, eleven, let's go C'mon, get out your new sword C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon! He come walking down my street I said, He come walking down my street He come up to my room He knock on my heart He come into my life He make me feel so good, so good So tough, so tough You know what I'm talking about? You know what I'm talking about? I'm going home, I'm going home! Bou, bou, bou, bou Bou, bou, bou, bou, bou Back home, yes I am. He come down, make you feel alright Like a thief in the middle of the night I'm going home, home I'm going home, home Going home, home That's right, I'm going home Where you going? You going home? Going home. We going home I'm going home, yea! I'm going home. Goodnight, we love you Thank you!
