Song Lyrics

They come from miles around just to hear him play

He`s on the same street corner almost every day

And there`s always a crowd wherever he goes

And when he blows his horn, well everybody knows

I only wanna see him play

All the girls `n` boys they wanna see him play

Nobody else they wanna see him play

And he brings a tear to the eye

He`ll make you smile of make you cry

And nobody asks him why

Cos they just wanna see him play

They come from every way, every night

He`s got a band so out there, it`s outta sight

And the boys in the dancehall are rocking in the aisle

The girls up front - they wanna see him smile

I only wanna see him play

All the girls `n` boys they wanna see him play

Nobody else they wanna see him play

And he brings a tear to the eye

He`ll make you smile of make you cry

Ooh, nobody asks him why

Cos they just wanna see him play

Yeah, he`s the man with the horn

Ooh they wanna see him play

Yeah, he`s the man with the horn

Ooh they wanna see him play

Yeah, he`s the man with the horn

You know they wanna see him, they wanna see him

They wanna, they wanna, they wanna see him play

(Play it, Don!)

Ah, station to station, coast to coast

Well you can hear all his records on the radio

He makes every evening feel like Saturday night

And if you`re happy or sad he`ll make the feeling right

I only wanna see him play

All the girls `n` boys they wanna see him play

Nobody else they wanna see him play

And he brings a tear to the eye

He`ll make you smile of make you cry

Ooh, nobody asks him why

Cos they just wanna see him play

Yes, you know they wanna see him, they wanna see him

Chow, they know they wanna see him, they wanna see him

They wanna, they wanna, they wanna see him play

They wanna see him play, play, play, play

Oh, all the girls and boys wanna see him play

All the girls and boys wanna see him play

All the girls and boys...
