Song Description

people need something to do all the time..no idle time to reflect and take a deep breath moving and grooving all the time

Story Behind the Song

I was on strike at the airport and all I saw was people filling their time with all sorts of different things..besides waiting for a flight

Broadjam Member Reviews

Very modern words for this everyday life song..Simple but tells a story of boredom or having to do something all the time.....vocal reminds me a little of Bruce Springsteen..a little on the raspy side

    - Delta Burnett Reed
Lyrics

KEEP EM' OCCUPIED By Jim Anderson
YOU SEE PEOPLE TALKING ON CELL PHONES (CAPO 1ST)
OR TEXTING THEIR BEST FRIENDS Em G A---D
LET'S ORDER THE MAXIMUM CHANNELS ALL VERSES
ON OUR BIG SCREEN T.V. SETS
(CHORUS)
CAUSE I WANNA__ STAY__ OCCUPIED ( C G D )
OR I MIGHT__ GET TOO BORED ( C G D )
SOMETHING TO OCCUPY MY TIME ( C G D )
EVERY MOMENT OF THE DAY__YEAH, YEAH, YEAH (BACK TO Em G A D)

YOU SEE IT ON EVERY COMMERCIAL
TAKE YOURSELF ON VACATION
BECAUSE, YOU DESERVE TO GET AWAY
CALL NOW AND DON'T DELAY

IT'S SOMETHING TO KEEP YOU BUSY
KEEP YOU MOVIN' ALL THE TIME
YOU HATE TO HAVE ANY DOWN TIME
YOU GOTTA KEEP EM' OCCUPIED
(CHORUS)
HURRY ON UP THROUGH THE DRIVE THROUGH
WORK LATE AND ORDER TAKE OUT
DOIN' SOMETHING EVERY MINUTE, HEY_
THAT'S WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT

SHAVE ON YOUR WAY TO THE OFFICE
WATCH A D.V.D IN YOUR S.U.V.
CHECK YOUR STOCK'S BEFORE YOU GO TO BED
WITH YOU'RE ROUND THE CLOCK INTERNET
(CHORUS)X2
