    Lyrics

    As a boy I had a gig with a travelin' show
    Way back in '63
    We did a little pickin' for the soldier boys
    Of General Bobby Lee

    But when we got to Pennsylvania,
    I knew there'd be a change
    We caught up with some boys from Georgia
    And I heard one of them say

    Don't tell the band
    The devil's on his way
    Don't tell the band
    Just let the music play

    Later on I had a job pouring gin and rum
    On the grand queen of the sea
    We set out on our first transatlantic voyage
    Headed for New York City

    But when I felt that lady shudder
    I knew there'd be a change
    I saw the captain grab the first mate
    And I thought I heard him say

    Don't tell the band
    The devil's on his way
    Don't tell the band
    Just let the music play
    Just let the music play

    In the Restaurant at the End of the Universe
    In the year 3010
    I was listenin' to the Good Old Interstellar Boys
    Playin' "Let It Be" again

    But when I heard the trumpet sounding
    I knew there'd be a change
    A prophet wearin' robes appeared before us
    And he looked at me and said

    Don't tell the band
    The devil's on his way
    Don't tell the band
    Just let the music play

    Don't tell the band
    The devil's on his way
    Don't tell the band
    Just let the music play
    Just let the music play
    Just let the music play
