Don't Change a Thing

from Saturday Night by Grupo X

/

about

A true story (mostly) about an encounter at a music networking occasion in Leeds, set to a Buena Vista-style Latin groove.

lyrics

VERSE 1

Well I met you at the bar
Talking at a hundred miles an hour
Lithuanian rave night plugger
Furry coat, drinking Belgian lager

CHORUS
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya

VERSE 2

It was a networking occasion
Meeting folks of a similar persuasion
You said that you prefer Leeds to Venice
And led me up to the rooftop terrace

CHORUS
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya

BRIDGE

Well I told ya that I didn’t want to see ya
But you stalked me on my social media
Late-night visits to my flat
Left you on the welcome mat
Crying “Baby, baby, baby I need ya”

CHORUS
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya
Ya ya ya, ya ya ya


Maybe you’re okay, after all
And the sun lights up your face
You make me wanna sing
Don’t change a thing

You never pause for breath
But the passion in your eyes
The pleasure that you bring
Don’t change a thing

You play your music too loud
But you love your 45s
A little bit left-wing?
Don’t change a thing

You forget to call me up
But I love you anyway
Gonna wear your wedding ring
Don’t change a thing

Don’t change a thing (ad lib)
