"Gather 'Round" lyrics - ARTHUR LEE

"Gather 'Round"

I will invite you, I'll give you my bell
And then you can ring it and go fair thee well
And the leaves don't fall on my grandfather's grave
'Cos the trees have been replaced with the city buildings

Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

Gather 'round people as fast as you can
I'm gonna tell another story 'bout an animal called man
Well, he struts all around with his tailor made suits
But his mind is all filled up with bullshit

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm

Join in singing and feeling this place
I'd like to be in a lifetime that you can't erase
If you don't like my story then don't buy my songs
'Cos I wouldn't want you to listen to anything wrong

Take a while, take, take a while
Take, take, take a while, take a while
Take a while
