Let That Tape Keep Rolling
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Well I woke up in the morning, I said a morning prayer I washed my face with soap and ran my fingers through my hair I went down to the studio on Hollywood and Vine The clock said eleven thirty, well, I made it just in time I greeted a 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. The first song that we cut was called "Lonely by Myself" I'll do the vocal later, you can just leave it on the shelf The second song we cut was called "Unlucky Blues" The session's getting better now we're turning on the juice The last song took us seven takes, the first one took us ten Let's give it all we got and do the chorus once again. 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, let it roll, 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 Yes the music's playing, the production's clean Cross fade all the tracks and don't leave no spaces in between. 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, c'mon, c'mon. Well, I started out ten years ago, my guitar in my hand I took the music in my heart and played it with the band I went down to the tower to record "Upon This Rock" I sang it like I felt it, I just let the music talk I know where I am going and I know who I must be Don't care how long it takes me, 'cause there's lots of things to see. C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, let that love keep flowing C'mon, let your faith keep growing C'mon, keep that good news going C'mon, let your light keep shinning C'mon, be careful what you signing C'mon, let that love keep flowing C'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, c'mon. Oh yeah, alright, alright! He come walking down my street He come up to my room He knock on my door He come into my heart He make me feel so good, so good So good,  so good, so tough. I'm going home. Bou, bou, bou, bou, bou, bou Bou, bou, bou, bou, bou, bou Bou, bou, bou, bou, bou, back home. He'll come down make you feel alright Like a thief in the middle of the night In the middle of the night Cha, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, cha, cha Ooh, la, la, la, ta, ta, la, la, sha, la, la, la Ooh, la, la, la, ta, ta, la, sha, la, la! C'mon, let that tape keep rolling C'mon, c'mon. When the Lord get ready You got to move. Wanna do it again?
