Four on the Floor
words and music by Jackson Rohm

It only takes a second for everything to change
It’s always when you’re getting what you want that it’s taken all away
And drumsticks and guitar picks are all that’s left I’m told
Scattered in the grass on the shoulder of the road

So give me four on the floor
With a snare on the twos and the fours
You always said, “keep it simple and you’ll say much more”
Give me just four on the floor
Save your best stuff for the encore
Keep the beat, they’re on their feet calling out for more
Can you hear the crowd roar

You always seemed happy barely scraping by,
Just as long as a guitar or piano was somewhere nearby
And you changed my life with music when you opened up my eyes
In your old man’s garage back in 1985

So give me four on the floor
With a snare on the twos and the fours
You always said, “keep it simple and you’ll say much more”
Give me just four on the floor
Save your best stuff for the encore
Keep the beat, they’re on their feet calling out for more
Can you hear the crowd roar

And though I know you’ll never hear this song
I know if you were here you’d play along

So give me four on the floor
With a snare on the twos and the fours
You always said, “keep it simple and you’ll say much more”
Give me just four on the floor
Save your best stuff for the encore
Keep the beat, they’re on their feet calling out for more
Can you hear the crowd roar
