  • There’s mosquitoes on the river fish are rising up like birds
    It’s been hot for seven weeks now,
    Too hot to even speak now, did you hear what I just heard?

    Say it might have been a fiddle or it could have been the wind
    But there seems to be a beat now I can feel it my feet now
    Listen here it comes again!

    There’s a band out on the highway, they’re high steppin’ into town
    It’s a rainbow full of sound, it’s fireworks, calliopes and clowns
    Everybody dancin’ c’mon children, c’mon children, come on clap your hands.

    Sun went down in honey and the moon came up in wine,
    You know stars were spinnin’ dizzy, lord
    The band kept us too busy we forgot about the time.

    They’re a band beyond description, like jehovah’s favorite choir
    People joining hand in hand while the music played the band, lord
    They’re setting us on fire.

    Crazy rooster crowin’ midnight, balls of lightin’ roll along
    Old men sing about their dreams, women laugh and children scream
    And the band keeps playin’ on.

    Keep on dancin’ thru the daylight, greet the mornin’ air with song
    No ones’s noticed, but the band’s all pack and gone. was it ever there at all?
    But they keep on dancin’ c’mon children, c’mon children, come on clap your hands
    Well the cool breeze came on tuesday, and the corn’s a bumper crop
    And the fields are full of dancin’ full of singin’ and romancin’
    The music never stopped.
