Lyrics

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
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 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 used to do that top 40 scene
played all the hits on the radio
and the people come up and say
God, you're great but can't you guys do something original
Well, I write, he writes, they write, we write, alright
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
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 do originals, we do originals
We do originals, we do originals
Etc.
