Everybody join together, I want you to join together
Come on and join together with the band
We need you to join together, come on and join together
Come on and join together with the band

[interlude]

You don't have to play, you can follow or lead the way
I want you to join together with the band
We don't know where we're going, but the season's right for knowing
I want you to join together with the band

Come on and join together with the band
Hey hey hey hey hey hey, well, everybody come on
                        (join together...)   
Come on and join, join together with the band
We need you to join together, everybody come on
Hey hey hey, join together with the band
