ONE MORE TIME
© Herb Gross 2007

Verse 1

When we were just kids, we had a Rock and Roll Band
Had a lot of fun, but we didn’t know what we had
The girls they were a plenty, the money wasn’t bad
But today we all agree, we didn’t know what we had …
We had a fan club, the girls chased us home
They knew where we lived and they knew we had a phone …
Our ego’s got big, the band could do no wrong
But when the band broke up, Well I surely felt alone …

CHORUS

Can we do it one more time … we have to do it, just one more time
Can we do it one more time … if we don’t do it, it will surely be a crime

Verse 2

We traveled in a black hearse, we were never on time …
People waited for hours, they never seemed to mind …
The girls they were a plenty, the money wasn’t bad
Today we all agree, we didn’t know what we had …

CHORUS - BRIDGE

Then one night we went to hear a group, the Mary Haitz Band
She introduced us to the crowd, asked us to sit in …
We did a song we haven’t done in many years …
It was “Long Tall Shortie”, it was music to my ears …

Verse 3

I called the guys in the band and said, you want to do it one more time …
We know it won’t be easy and we’ll never make a dime …
We haven’t played in 20 years, our hair is all gray …
The girls don’t look at us in the same old way …
But here we are all of us, we’re back on the stage …
Out to prove we can do it … Ya even at our age …
We all still have the fire deep within …
It started 40 years ago at Tiny’s Bengel Inn
Can we do it one more time, if we don’t do it it will surely be a crime …

SING TO END:

We have to do it … one more time, we’ve got to do it … one more time …
We gotta do it … one more time
