CHRISTINA AGUILERA - Back In The Day

rate me

What we're gonna do right here is go back

Way back, back into time

Yeah, yeah-yeah

(Donny Hathaway, Leena Horne)

(Miss Aretha, (The Real Thing) James Brown, Billie Holiday)

(Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Louis Armstrong)

(Minnie Riperton, Otis Redding, Etta James)

Back in the day, they used to say

Play that song, get it going, and the band played

And still today, you hear us say

Play that song all night long, Mr. DJ

Though times have changed,

It's still the same

We all need a minute to get away

So let it go and feel the flow

If you've got soul, let the world know

We're gonna set the mood (set the mood off right)

Gonna go back to an old school groove (go back to an old school groove)

Gonna rewind to another time

When the originators, innovators were alive, yeah

Here we say now

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day, and Coltrane

Turn up your 45's, bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday

Open your mind, enjoy the ride,

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it

Back in the day, back in the day

Oh baby

Back in the day, back in the day

Won't you take me back?

Back in the day, back in the day

I'll do it

Back in the day, back in the day

Ohh yeah

Y'all remember back in the day, you dig

Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald

Yeah

Now "Chain Of Fools" and "Respect"

Was the anthem of a woman, Aretha said

"What's Going On", "Let's Get It On"

Such classic songs, don't forget them

Though times have changed

They still remain my inspiration everyday

So give it up for the ones

Who came before, opened up that door

We're gonna set the mood

(we're gonna) (set the mood)

Gonna go back to an old school groove

(go back) (to an old school groove)

Gonna rewind to another time

(rewind) (another time)

When the originators, innovators were alive

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day, and Coltrane

Turn up your 45's, bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday

(the sound and vibe of yesterday)

Open your mind, enjoy the ride,

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Take it back, take it

Back in the day, back in the day

Oh baby

Back in the day, back in the day

Won't you take me back?

Back in the day, back in the day

I'll do it

Back in the day, back in the day

So get up, re-live it

Gotta let yourself flow

Give up your praise

Come celebrate

Just get up, get on it

Get yourself on the floor

Don't back away (don't back away)

Come celebrate (gonna celebrate, yeah)

So break out the Marvin Gaye and Etta James

Your Lady Day, and Coltrane

Turn up your 45's, bring back to life

The sound and vibe of yesterday

(the sound and vibe, alright yeah)

Open your mind, enjoy the ride,

Live out tonight and grab that Soul Train

Takin' back in the day, day

Back in the day, back in the day

Back in the day, back in the day

Back in the day, back in the day

Back in the day, back in the day

Oh baby, I'll do it

Oh baby, ohh yeah yeah woah woah yeah
