WE DO ORIGINALS
We do originals, we write music
the kind ya like to hear on the radio
We do originals, we write music
the kind ya like to play on your stereo
Well, I write, he writes, they write, we write, alright

we play your music all night long
we like to think that we're something special
and the people come up and say
God, you're great but can't you guys play something off the radio
well, I write, he writes, they write, we write, alright
We do originals, we write music
