Speed It Up


That’s a beautiful song you’re singing
Please speed it up.
It’s a rouser not a dirge
So speed it up.
We’re here to see the game
Please speed it up.
You’re not on American Idol
So speed it up.
Everyone else knows the tempo
Please speed it up.
It’s our anthem, sing it with joy
So speed it up.
Maybe you need a snare drum,
Please speed it up.
I believe your echo’s catching you
So speed it up.
You’re singing one verse not all three
Please speed it up.
This song puts a chill in my heart
Please speed it up.
It’s all about the song, not you
So speed it up.
So when you sing “Star Spangled Banner”
Please speed it up!
