Don't believe those clouds in the sky
'Cause they'll be moving on and the sun will shine
If the world's been passin' you by,
Just reach out for a star and you'll realize

Got to put back all the good times that we had
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz

If you feel your life's in a rut
Just come on out tonight and we'll pull you up
Ain't no use in draggin' your feet
'Cause something's in the air that just can't be beat

Got to put back all the good times that we had
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz

Bring out the rides with all those white walled tires
Let's go out cruisin' like we used to do
Get suited down let's set the town on fire
Jump out your seat and let the music pull you through

We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz

Got to put back all the good times that we had
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz

Bring out the rides with all those white walled tires
Let's go out cruisin' like we used to do
Get suited down let's set the town on fire
Jump out your seat and let the music pull you through

You can lay your soul on the line
'Cause we can make it work
If we do it right
Got to spread the message around
The people of the world should be getting down

Got to put back all the good times that we had

We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz

We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz
We can make it better with a little bit of razzamatazz
