Wordplay Lyrics - Jason Mraz



Review The Song (36)


Verse I

I've been all around the world, I've been a new sensation
But it doesn't really matter, in this g-generation
The sophmore slump is an uphill battle
And someone says it ain't my scene

'Cause they need a new song, like a new religion
Music for the television, I can't do the long division
Someone do the math
For the record label puts me on the shelf up in the freezer
Gotta find another way to live the life of leisure

So I drop my top, I mix and a mingle
Is everybody ready for my single and it goes

Chorus:

Ha la la la la, l-listen closer to the verse I lay
Ha la la la la, it's all about the wordplay
Ha la la la love, the wonderful thing it does
Because, because
I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah the Mr. A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay

Verse II

When it's time to get ill I got your remedy
For those who don't remember me
Well let me introduce you to my style
I try to keep a jumble in the lyrics, never mumble
When the music's makin' people tongue-tied

You want a new song, like a new religion
Music for the television, I can't do your long division
Someone do the math
For the people write me off like I'm a one-hit wonder
Gotta find another way to keep from goin' under

Pull out the stops, got your attention
I guess it's time again for me to mention, the wordplay

Chorus:

Ha la la la la, l-listen closer to the words I lay
Ha la la la la, it's all about the wordplay
Ha la la la love, the wonderful thing it does
Because, because
I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah the Mr. A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay

Bridge:

I built a bridge across the stream of consciousness
That always seems to be a flowin'
But I don't know which way my brain is goin'
Oh the rhymin' and the timin'
Keeps the melodies inside of me
And they're climbin' till I'm running out of air

Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head
Are you listening to a single word I've said?

Ah la la la la la la, listen closer to the words I say
Ah la la la la, I'm stickin' to the wordplay
Ah la la la love, the wonderful thing it does
Because, because
I am the wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's
Yeah the Mr. A to Z, they say I'm all about the wordplay

Ha la la la la, I'm all about the wordplay
Ha la la la la, I'm stickin' with the wordplay
Ha la la la love, I love the wonderful thing it does
Because, because
The ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's are back in love
For the Mr. A to Z they say, is all about the wordplay

AWESOME SONG | Reviewer: Filoula | 6/10/12

Don't you think it's awesome how this song is so effortless and there are none others like it.
Also loved the fact that he says "yeah the mister of a to z" and that equals mr az which is mraz. I just loved that!
....wizard of ooh's and ah's and fa-la-la's

Wordplay | Reviewer: None | 6/30/11

I've just recently discovered the song, and I fell in love with it. It is bubbly and makes me happy. It can immediately put a smile on my face if I am in a bad mood. It is just all around a great song!(:

non pareil | Reviewer: Avinash Singh | 2/3/11

I truly adore Jason for whats lacking in me. I do write at times and i read a lot. Jason comes across to me as a guy who's discovered class in his simplicity. Won't say there's nothing better than him. But will never compare him with anyone. Thats my respect to this guy. Cheers!

Found | Reviewer: Lost | 9/1/10

I love Jason Mraz. He not only has good lyrics, but he also is a REAL singer. He doesn't use popular modern ways to alter his voice, as you can see from his live performances. Wordplay is quite the jazzy song, and is just one "side" of his music. For all you folks out there looking for more of his great songs, I would recommend, in no specific order,:
~Beautiful Mess
~Butterfly
~Lucky (ft. Colbie Callait.)
~I'm Yours
~Live High
~Prettiest Friend
~You and I both
~Hey Love

Enjoy.
With Love,
Jen <3

love wordplay song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/24/10

Hi, I'm from Cambodia. | Reviewer: Panha | 1/6/10

Fantastic! Hats off!
Well, I've listened to this song for quite several times and it is just amazing. Well, I think there are some hidden meanings, if you haven't noticed, in this songs. Like in the first verse he mentioned all the challenge regarding his style of singing, but then he siad, "well, I do it cuz I'm good at it.(The wonderful thing it does because I'm the wizard of ooh's and ah's...)" And another hidden meanings are in the second verse where he tried to remind us of his old hits!
After all, this is just my opinion...so go easy!

meaning | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/30/09

it's a wordplay, so it must be kinda literal. For me, it seems like someone told him "change your style, Jason, or you will be lost," yet, he sticks with it. The need to change style is mentioned on the first part, but the chorus tells about the "wonderful things" it does, and so, he is "stickin with the wordplay".
Anyway, it's a great song!

great song!!! and hidden meaning?? | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/15/09

first i want to say that this song has been getting stuck in my head constantly lately and I absolutely love it :D
2nd,
I'm not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but if you listen to the 2nd verse closely, it sounds kind of like he is reminding you of his hit single from his first album, 'The Remedy (I Won't Worry)'
"When it's time to get ill I got your remedy
For those who don't remember me"

"For the people write me off like I'm a one-hit wonder
Gotta find another way to keep from goin' under
Pull out the stops,
Got your attention"

I love this song | Reviewer: Rob | 7/23/09

Jason Mraz | Reviewer: Nathan O'Brien | 2/14/09

I found this song via itunes's genius... I listened and listened and soo on AND loved it...

BUT...

I've now heard some of his other songs but they dont compare to this one. Quite disapointed :(
still like some of his songs tho.

novice from the philippines | Reviewer: bran darius | 12/10/08

Aside form being too good when it comes to voice quality, Jason Mraz' song, Wordplay, for me is appropriate for a song that aims at capturing the mind and somehow build awareness to the listeners..Honestly speaking, i thought he just showed up this year I mean this is his first year in the music industry but i was wrong.. good thing my friends told me that he has been singing a quiet sometime but breakthrough just came out after the release of His worldly known Im Yours...now the composer may not be aware about the intensity of the caption WORDPLAY might lead into the minds of the listeners but indeed it captivates the heart of the listeners with its melodious vocalization, effective diction,irresistible rhythm and compact message to the subject...Anyways, congratulations Jason for being a phenomenal hit and for singing hopeful musics,....KUDOS and GOOD luck for future commitments... you've just got to touch millions of lives.. thank you and more power...till here

Wordplay | Reviewer: Jakktar | 10/22/08

(Yeah im from sweden, my english might sucks :P)

And yes, i do love this song! I heard it, fell in love with the melody, found the lyrics and started practising. xd Finally i knew all the words (yeah, im proud as dunno what xD). Then i started to really look at the words and as "Vox" said - its awesome. Heh, "listen closly to the words i say", yeah its so easy, especially for a swedish idiot.! xD The first song of jason that i heard was "I'm yours", i just löööved it. xd I got some more songs and its not very often a guy can make so many great songs!
Can just say i love it all. Oh, what a different comment. Ever heard anythin like it? :O xD
