Good Sunday morning! This week Jim Adams has challenged us with Music/Harmony/Melody for Song Lyric Sunday.

I’ve Got the Music in Me” is a pop song by The Kiki Dee Band, released in 1974. It was written in 1973 by Bias Boshell, Kiki Dee Band’s keyboardist.

The song entered the UK Singles Chart on 7 September 1974, reached number 19 and stayed in the chart for eight weeks. 

On the Billboard pop chart in the United States, “I’ve Got the Music in Me” peaked at number 12 on October 19, 1974. 

She has such a great voice, I hope you enjoy it.

Song Lyrics
I Got The Music In Me - Kiki Dee


Ain't got no troubles in my life
No foolish dream to make me cry.
I'm never frightened or worried,
I know I'll always get by.
I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
When something gets in my way I go round it.
Don't let life get me down
Gonna take life the way that I found it.

CHORUS
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me

They say that life is a circle (circle)
But that ain't the way that I've found it.
Gonna move in a straight line (ooh)
Keeping my feet firmly on the ground.
I heat up (I heat up)
I cool down (I cool down)
I got words in my head so I say them.
Don't let life get me down,
Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.

CHORUS

Feel funky
Feel good
Gonna tell ya
I'm in the neighbourhood
Gonna fly like a bird on the wing
Hold on to your hat honey,
Sing, sing, sing, sing
Heat up, cool down (cool down)
I got words in my head so I say them
Don't let life get me down (Don't let it get ya down)
Catch a hold of my blues and just play them.

CHORUS x2

Ain't got no trouble in my life,
No foolish dream to make me cry.
I'm never frightened I'm never worried,
I know, I know I'll always get by.

I got the music
Pretty music
I got the music
In me

Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down
Ha, ha, ha, ha

CHORUS

Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down

I got the music in me
I got the music in me
I got the music in me
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get ya down
Don't let it get you down
