I’ve got a right to be happy, I’ve got a right to be sad
(I’ve got) a right to sing the blues, and (I’ve got) a right to be glad
Oh, I’m glad to be here right now just singing along in time
To the rhythm of my heart and I love the next line

(Chorus) Shabby doo bop doo bop
Shabby doo bop da dee
‘Tis the sound of a heart
A heart feeling free

I’ve got to do it tonight, I’ve got to do it today
The timing’s just right and life’s just a play
So swing on your swing, dance on the floor
Pick up your feet and then come back for more


Now the lightning was flashin’ and the thunder came a crashin,
But the clouds just up and vanished and the full moon is a dancin’
There’s kids out there screamin’, jumpin’ and a splashin’
Taking a midnight swim while the summer keeps advancin’



from Duets 1, released January 9, 2015
