Jason Mraz – Word Play

Wordplay
Words By Jason Mraz & Kevin Kadish, Music By Jason Mraz

I’ve been all around the world
I’ve been a new sensation.
But it doesn’t really matter in this g-g-generation
The sophmore slump is an uphill battle
But someone said that ain’t my scene
Cuz they need a new song like a new religion
Music for the television
I cant do the long division someone do the math
Before the record label puts me on a shelf up in the freezer
And I gotta find another way to live the life of leisure
So I drop my top
Mix and I mingle…
Is everybody ready for the single (and it goes)…

la la la la la listen closely to the verse I lay
La la la la It’s all about the wordplay
I la la la la love the wonderful thing it does because
Because I am the wizard of oohs and ahhs and fa la la la’s
The MR. A to Z they say is all about the wordplay.

When it’s time to get ill I got your remedy
For those who don’t remember me
Let me introduce you to my style
I try to keep a jumble in the lyrics never mumble
When the groove is making people tongue-tied
You want a new song like a new religion
Music for the television
I cant do the long division someone do the math
Before my people write me off just like a one hit wonder
I gotta find another way to keep from going under
Pull out the stops – Got your attention
I guess it’s time again for me to mention the wordplay.

la la la la la listen closer to the verse I lay
It’s all about the wordplay
I la la la la love the wonderful thing it does because
Because I am the wizard of oohs and ahhs and fa la la la’s
The mister A to Z they say is all about the wordplay.

I built a BRIDGE across the Stream of consciousness
It always seems to be a flowing
Though I don’t know which way my brain is going
All the rhyming and the timing keep the melodies inside me
ever climbing ‘til I’m running out of air…
Are you prepared to take a dive into the deep end of my head?
Are you listening to a “single” word I’ve said?

La la la la la listen closer to the verse I lay
La la la la I’m sticking with the wordplay
I la la la la love the wonderful thing it does because
Because I am the wizard of oohs and ahhs and fa la la la’s
The mister A to Z they say is all about the wordplay.

Because of the oohs and the ahhs and fa la la’s
Fall back in love with the mister A to Z
They say is all about the wordplay.
