Last June

wouldn’t be / satisfied
on a wave / of phase

weren’t no D.J. / that was you
hey, that’s far / out

so the loud sound / did seem to know
what time it was / the lights were low

weren’t no D.J. / that was you
i leaned / may land tonight

don’t tell / a good man
that’s a dead end / he said

weren’t no D.J. / that was you
the loud sound / the lights were low

don’t waste / your time
i know / the place / of your someone

weren’t no D.J. / he told me
a lonely friday night / the lights were low

be qualified / look out
waiting / in the sky

weren’t no D.J. / it was you
the lights were low / lookin’ alright

a lonely / friday night
it’s all worthwhile / he told me

weren’t no D.J. / it was you
i asked to stay / the children boogie

i had to / if she wanted to dance
come and meet us / waiting

wouldn’t be satisfied / and i said fade
came back / ‘cause he knows

and I could never see
you heard him

don’t waste your time
switch on / i know

i ran away / she couldn’t stop crying
asked me / if we could

weren’t no D.J. / it was you
let me hurt / so bad

and I could never see
you heard him

what’s on your mind / hazy cosmic jive
on my radio / tears in her eyes

couldn’t stop cryin’ / standin’ by the bar
she was all / i thought i was

/ / /
