Let's Work Together
Canned Heat Lyrics

Together we stand, divided we fall
Come on now people, let's get on the ball and work together
Come on, come on let's work together, now now people
Because together we will stand, every boy every girl and a man

Before when things go wrong, as they sometimes will
And the road you travel, it stays all uphill
Let's work together, come on, come on, let's work together
You know together we will stand, every boy, girl, woman and a man
Oh well now, two or three minutes, two or three hours
What does it matter now, in this life of ours
Let's work together, come on, come on
Let's work together, now now people
Because together we will stand, every boy, every woman and a man

Oh come on, let's work together

Oh well now, make someone happy, make someone smile,
Let's all work together and make life worthwhile
Let's work together, come on, come on
Let's work together, now now people
Because together we will we stand, every boy, girl, woman and a man

Well now, together we will stand,
Every boy, girl, woman and a man

What a clear sounding video of an All-Time great blues band before we’d lose them. This is the definition of priceless.

Yes, thank you, its just German quality (Beat Club, TV)

Max Sugar

Yes, thank you Mike Leckebusch from Radio Bremen. He made it possible back then. It is also a historical document.


Canned Heat with the original lineup was the most underrated blues band ever !!! Their music lives today because of their real talent and love of what they play!!!

"Underrated" is the most overrated word in Youtube comments.
