The 11th Commandment

THE 11TH COMMANDMENT - Written by Carroll Bryant


Don't abuse the music
Listen to it
Dance to it
Enjoy it
Keep on dancing 

And so it was sent
Rules and regulations called commandments 
One to ten for all of men 
The word was passed around
Make them last forever

There should have been one more
One to be used out on the dance floor
Don't abuse the music 
Is that too much to ask for?

Write it from the soul
Sing it from the heart
Dance to it with emotion 
Don't ever stop once you start 

And so they were to obey
Live them the best you can every day
The commandments 
One to ten for all of men
The word was passed around
Make them last forever 

We got to have one more
One you ought not to ignore
Don't abuse the music
Is that too much to ask for?

It controls you
It rules your very soul
It seizes your senses
Its power is proven 
Its purpose demanding
Obey the 11th commandment
I command you!

Don't abuse the music
Don't do it
Yeah, you, the one rolling your eyes
You!

And so it was sent
Rules and regulations called commandments 
One to ten for all of men 
The word was passed around
Make them last forever

There should have been one more
One to be used out on the dance floor
Don't abuse the music 
Is that too much to ask for?

Don't abuse the music
Don't do it!
