    Can you give me two

    Uh, good God

    If you hear any noise
    It`s just me and the boys
    So everybody be mellow
    Somebody might drop their
    Horn and things like that
    But don`t worry about that

    I gotta say it three times
    Can I get three fellows
    Three times, uh, good God, ha
    All right now, all right

    Don`t be so mean

    Like about that cold sweat
    You came out, lookie here
    Red, man, what kind of horn you play
    A trombone, trombone
    Can I get a little taste
    Of that trombone

    Jabone, stretch your nose
    Joe, can you play
    A little bit over there

    Come on, now Pee Wee

    Cause your horn is too big
    Man, you got too much horn over there

    Gimme a little extra scope there, Country
    So I know you`re playing guitar, yeah

    Sinclair, since you`re from
    Augusta, Georgia, like I am

    You got to have some soul
    Right about here, now, right now

    All right, all right, get it
    Now, fellas, now just, just ease out of it
    That`s right, you keep playing, Maceo
