SHOW ME THE WAY
Jon Batiste Lyrics


Da da da da day
Alright, Jon, what do you wanna listen to?

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (uh, oh)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (uh, oh)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey

I've been digging into Ella Fitzgerald
Billie Holiday, Jonathan McReynolds
When you talk about gettin' it in
I wanna say, come on
I really do
Listening to Wu-Tang Clan
Wanna drive down to the new Dazz band
Stevie Wonder on the way home
I wanna say, come on

I need you (do you wanna come around?)
You (I really wanna get down)
You (do you wanna come around?)
(I really wanna get down)

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (uh, oh)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (uh, yeah)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey

I wanna feel a little Hubert Laws
And Thelonious
On the phone with us
Vibin' on Nina Simone
I gotta say, come on
I really do
Now I wanna hold your hand
Lil' Darlin, Lover Man
Beatles or Rolling Stones
I gotta say, come on

I need you (do you wanna come around?)
You (I really wanna get down)
You (do you wanna come around?)
Oh (I really wanna get down)

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (show me the way)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey

If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know (I don't know)
You gotta show me the way (uh, oh)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey (ooh)

I really ain't tryna play no games
You and me in exotic lands
Traveling through a space and time for (space and time, space and time)
Just to relax, get cool, unwind (yeah)
Turn that record player on
Blast me your favorite song (yeah)

If I don't know
If I don't know (oh yeah)
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way
(You gotta show me the way)
(You gotta show me the way) show me the way, hey, hey, hey
If I don't know
If I don't know
If I don't know
You gotta show me the way (gotta show me the way)
(I really wanna know the way)
Show me the way, hey, hey, hey
