…take the chain off your brain…

Doodle wop a-rat-a-tat boom
I’ll make the sound of a jet plane zoom
Doodle wop a-rat-a-tat boom
I’ll make the sound of a fire

You got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?
You got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?

What have I, I done to you
To make you mean
And treat me the way you do?

Go on and wave your flag, brother
Start your revolution
I’m willin’ to let you do your thing
Tell me why are you plannin’ a compromise?

Oh, you got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?
You gotta believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?

Take the chain off your brain
Take the chain off your brain
Stop, take a look at yourself
Stop ridiculin’ everybody else

You’ve got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?
You got to believe in somethin’
Why not believe in me?

  1. That’s the most incredible animation. Love! yes, why not?

  2. Yes. The irony of those earliest artistic expressions of femininity dancing to the Pointer Sisters’s lyrics advocating women’s basic human rights is genius,,

  3. What a fun way to start my day! Watched it twice. Thanks, Will!
