lyrics

Yes, and life and song have endless variation
So we embrace the possibilities
The groove is what we all create together
With sympathetic synchronicity
Yes, and what we seek is not just entertainment
And what we make is not just rock’n’roll
We’re teaming up for spiritu’l entrainment
To fortify the body and the soul

Life is a jam
We live to jam
Our music is a soul collaboration
We sing and dance
At every chance
It’s a righteous conflagration
Of concerted inspiration
Our collective intuition
Brings our wishes to fruition

Jamming is a leap into the future
Uncertainty is not a thing to fear
Yes, and when the music’s playing us
No one has to steer the bus
We’re Magellan, Captain Cook, and Marco Polo
What’s next is not a jam – it’s just a solo

Yes, and we don’t know where we’re going til we get there
And we don’t know how it ends until it ends
We do our greatest work when we’re not thinking
And no one can remember what played when
‘Cause what we seek is not just entertainment
And what we make is not just rock’n’roll
We’re teaming up for spiritu’l entrainment
To fortify the body and the soul

Life is a jam
We jam to live
Our music is a soul collaboration
We sing and dance
At every chance
It’s a righteous conflagration
Of concerted inspiration
Our collective intuition
Brings our wishes to fruition

Jamming is a leap into the future
Uncertainty is not a thing to fear
Yes, and when the music’s playing us
No one has to steer the bus
Now, depending on my mood and random factors
We’ll groove, or jam, or segue, or just end.
