CAN'T YOU HEAR ME?
by
The New Little Princess* (2025)

This piano’ll put a smile on your face
You’ll never think about drums, guitar or bass
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me?

Come on, everyone,
Your feet can’t stand there
In a minute have your heels in the air
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me?

CHORUS:

Because when I start to rock
You’d better roll, roll, roll
‘Cos this new kind of music’s
Got an old soul, soul, soul

And the first time you hear it
You will know, know, know
Your feet ain’t stoppin’
You can’t stop rockin’
So you know, you know, you know, you know
[Music stops] Owww! You’ve lost control!

Yeah, here it comes!

[Musical Interlude]

Everybody’s got to feel that music
Everybody’s got to get on this new thing
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me?

Can't understand it?
Well, that’s all right, hey!
If you can feel it then you know it’s OK,
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me, me, me, me?
Ow-w-w-w-w!

[CHORUS]

Watch it now!
Look out!

[musical interlude]

Come on, baby, let it take you over
New kind of music, not “Miracle Lover”
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me?

Everybody’s got to feel that music
Everybody’s got to get on this new thing
Come on, baby, can’t you hear me?
Come on, baby can’t you hear me?
COME ON, BABY, CAN'T YA HEAR ME?[shouted and the ME crescendoed one octave]

[musical conclusion] End on A chord.
