From: Weegin2@aol.com

We are looking for the words to the song The Rhythm of Life. We aren't sure if that is the correct name for the song.

It goes something like this...
    I was walking down the street last Sunday
    feeling mighty low and kinda mean.
    Suddenly a voice said go forth neighbor
    spread the picture on a wider screen...

I remember the chorus:

"For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street
and the rhythm of life has a powerful beat!"

Sang it in high school ... will try to dredge up the rest.

Subject: Lyr Add: RHYTHM OF LIFE (Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 07 Jan 05 - 12:41 AM

Lyrics copied from http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/sweetcharity/rhythmoflife.htm

RHYTHM OF LIFE
(Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields, from "Sweet Charity")

Daddy started out in San Francisco,
Tootin' on his trumpet loud and mean.
Suddenly a voice said, "Go forth, Daddy.
Spread the picture on a wider screen."

And the voice said, "Brother, there's a million pigeons
Ready to be hooked on new religions.
Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your common-law wife.
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life."

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
Rhythm in your bedroom, rhythm in the street,
Yes, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

Daddy spread the gospel in Milwaukee,
Took his walkie-talkie to Rocky Ridge,
Blew his way to Canton, then to Scranton,
Till he landed under the Manhattan Bridge.

Daddy was the new sensation, got himself a congregation,
Built up quite an operation down below.
With the pie-eyed piper blowing, while the muscatel was flowing,
All the cats were go, go, going down below.

Daddy was the new sensation, got himself a congregation,
Built up quite an operation down below.
With the pie-eyed piper blowing, while the muscatel was flowing,
All the cats were go, go, going down below.

Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Fly, fly, fly to Daddy.

Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Swim, swim, swim to Daddy.

Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Crawl, crawl, crawl to Daddy.

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
Rhythm in your bedroom, rhythm in the street,
Yes, the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

To feel the rhythm of life,
To feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers,
To feel the tingle in your feet.

Flip your wings and fly to Daddy,
Take a dive and swim to Daddy,
Hit the floor and crawl to Daddy,
Daddy we got the rhythm of life,
Of life, of life, of life.
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Man!

Emma,

Welcome to Mudcat.

It works better on this forum if you start a new thread with the song lyrics you are looking for in the title, e.g.

Lyr Req: pa pa rong

(Note: when you create a new thread choose "Lyr Req" from the drop down menu on the left and just type the song title in the right hand field.

Also, it helps a lot if you can give us some more info on the song, e.g. who sang it, when/where you heard it, style of music, any of the lyrics you do know, etc

Helen

If I'm correct, this song was done by Sammy Davis, Jr. in the movie version of Sweet Charity, playing a hip clergyman holding services in a parking garage. Everyone in the congregation was wearing bell bottom pants. Interesting scene, but it sure made the film look dated.

when i started down the street last Sunday,
feeling mighty low, and kind of mean,
suddenly a voice said "go forth neighbor,
spread the picture on a wider screen"
and the voice said "neighbor there's a million reasons,
why you should be glad in all four seasons,
hit the road neighbor leave your worries and strife,
spread the religion of the rhythm of life"

for the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,
rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street,
and the rhythm of life is a powerful beat.
[repeat 2x]

[come in on the second one](to feel the rhythm of life
to feel the powerful beat
to feel the tingle in your fingers
to feel the tingle in your feet)

[come in on the third one]{go go go
go go go
tell them everything you know}

The version that 'GUEST' posted is the same version I learned almost twenty years ago, when I was singing with the Alaska Children's Choir up in Anchorage, AK. Before stumbling across this page, I had no idea that what I learned weren't the original lyrics, or that they were originally from Sweet Charity. Thanks much for this!

This
is the version our choir did(at least the cover looks like the same one) which is the words posted by Guest above,plus all the other ones Guest did not remember.
Being in Canada we changed the place names to Canadian content.
"Go and spread the Gospel in Vancouver, take a Walky -Talky to Calgary, all the way to Kingston then to Moncton, even shout it loudly from sea to sea" it then goes on to a Dooby Dooby bit, with different parts doing different Doobies. A local choral group may have a copy you could borrow, I know our choir rents out music to other choral groups.

I am currently learning the song RHYTHM OF LIFE in county chorus. As guest did a good job on the lyrics, they missed a lot of words. Here are the lyrics I am singing for the concert tomorrow and if I might add this is my favorite piece that we are singing for the 7th grade songs.

RHYTHM OF LIFE

When I started down the street last Sunday
Feeling mighty low and kinda mean
Suddenly a voice said go forth neighbor
Spread the picture on a wider screen
And the voice said neighbor there's a million reasons
Why you should be glad in all four seasons
Hit the road neighbor leave your worries and strife
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life

*CHORUS* (Only the sopranos sing this part, not everyone)
For the rhythm of life
Is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers
And a tingle in your feet
Rhythm on the inside
Rhythm in the street
For the rhythm of life
Is a powerful beat
(Repeat once more)

*VERSE 2* (Only baritones sing this part, once again, not everyone)

Go and spread the gospel in Milwaukee
Take a walkie-talkie to rocky ridge

(Only soprano and alto sing this part)

All the way to Canton then to Scranton
(Fast) Even tell it under the Manhattan Bridge
Bridge

(Only soprano sing this part)

You will make a new sensation
Have a growing congregation
Build a glowing operation
He-re be-low---

Flip your wings
And fly up high
Flip your wings
And fly up high
Flip your wings
And fly up high
Fly, fly, try to fly

You can do it
If you try
You can do it
If you try
You can do it
If you try
Try, try, try to fly

(This is all three singing types)

To feel the rhythm of life
To feel the powerful beat
To feel the tingle in your fingers
To feel the tingle in your feet

(Sopranos first part, alto and baritone is the second line each time) (They sing these two lines at the same time with each section singing their part)

For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
To feel the rhythm of life
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet
To feel the powerful beat
Rhythm on the inside rhythm in the street
To feel the tingle in your fingers
And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
To feel the tingle in your feet

Rhythm of your life (baritone and alto do this low and sopranos normal)
...
Rhythm of life--- (soprano sing this part very high)(baritone and alto sing this the same as last)

Rhythm of Life
Soprano version

Verse 1
When I started down the street last Sunday
feeling mighty low and kind of mean
Suddenly a voice said go forth neighbor
spread the picture on a wider screen
And the voice said neighbor there's a million reasons
why you should be glad in all four seasons
Hit the road neighbor leave your worries and strife
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life

Chorus
For the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet
rhythm on the inside rhythm in the street
and the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
                To feel the rhythm of life
                To feel the powerful beat
                To feel the tingle in your fingers
                To feel the tingle in your feet (2x)

Verse 2
Go and spread the gospel in Milwaukee
Take a walkie talkie to Rocky Ridge
All the way to Canton then to Scranton
even tell it under the Manhattan bridge

Been singing this song for years and it has always been a favourite.   For a time it was the most popular choral piece in the UK.   My choir - The Glasgow Phoenix Choir - recorded it in 1999 and it is on "Titanic - Classic Pop Collection" CDITV 658 by ScotDisc.   Part of it can be heard on website www.phoenixchoir.org under "recordings".

I've been looking forever for recordings/lyrics of 2 songs that I sang in a chorus when I was younger.

Rhythm Of Life was one of them, and I just found it on bearshare, and the other one was called Dance Dance Dance and this is the closest I could find to being the lyrics of the entire song

"In a village called Podolga, somewhere on the upper Volga
Lived a man who played the violin. Everynight when work was ended, he would play a tune so splendid; Soon the merry dancing would begin.

When they heard his fiddle playing everyone would soon be swaying.Toes would tap and feet would start to fly. In a circle round the fire, spirits soaring ever higher, They would raise their voices to the sky.

(Chorus)
And they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) together through the night. Yes, they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) until the morning light. How they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance, dance) He'd play his magic fiddle and they'd dance; the night away.

Everywhere the fiddler stayed he took his violin and played And soon the people came from far and wide. Once they heard his pizzicato there was no one who would not go Dancing all around the country side.

With his fiddle he would work a czardas or a mad mazurka
As the people whirled around with glee.
Villagers would ask him for a trepak or lively hora;
Then kick up their heels in ecstacy.

(Chorus)
(Chorus)

And they would dance (dance, dance, dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance, dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance); Dance (dance, dance)
Dance (dance, dance); Dance (dance, dance)
dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance,
Dance (dance, dance, dance) the night away!"



I'm pretty sure some parts were missing, I remember there being upper soprano parts that aren't here. Does anyone know of somewhere I could download of buy a recording of it? or who it's by? sheet music? anything?

thanks

Snap! When I was with Cantorion Creigiau (the mixed choir from the village of Creigiau, about eight miles north-west of Cardiff) we sang The Rhythym Of Life and Adiemus as well. The Rhythm Of Life really boiled my kettle, but our own local favourite was Adiemus, by the visionary composer Karl Jenkins, an ex-pupil of Gowerton Comprehensive School in the same county.

I love Karl's compositions, including the piece he was commissioned to write for the opening of the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay. His work has been recorded for several CDs.

[Flip your wings and fly up high!] 3 Fly, fly, fly up high!
[You can do it if you try!] 3 Try, try, try to fly!
[Like the bird up in the sky!] 3 Fly, fly, fly!

[Doobi, doobi, doobi, doobi, doobi, doobi, doobi, doo!] Repeat

[O the rhythm of life is a powerful beat
Puts a tingle in your fingers and tingle in your feet!
Rhythm on the inside, rhythm on the street, and the rhythm of life is a powerful beat!] 3

To feel the rhythm of life, to feel the powerful beat,
To feel the tingle in your fingers, to feel the tingle in your life! Life! Life!
Neighbor, you've got the rhythm, rhythm, rhythm of life!

Just done it in concert three times in the last two weekends, We have been doing it that long now I know the whole thing without music.
We sing almost exactly what is stated in the last posting above, except third line is "spread" not speed and the odd sp. We also Canadianize the towns, "Go and spread the gospel in Vancouver, take a walkie talkie to Calgary, all the way yo Kingston then to Moncton, even shout it lodly from sea to sea"

I really dont like the real version. The "daddy in San Francisco" version. But, I know this will sound lame. We sang the rhythm of life in our chorus and i liked it so much that i wanted to download it and put it on our IPod, but the only version u can get is the REAL one. I hate it!!!! but i luv the song.

I sang this song too, in my performing choir in Melbourned Australia about 15 years ago.

I too didnt know it was from Sweet Charity until today and I like the choir version better than the original too.

We had a more complex version of this again. It had more parts repeated and was quite long. It also had 5 different groups singing at once. I can't believe that after being so heavily involved in the choir for 3-4 years, performing overseas, training to almost military regimes during 'camps' which were really 14 hours per day of training (which I dreaded) I have forgotten so much!!!. I can't even remember what the 'parts' are called when you talk about each 'group' singing a different line from the sheet music and also what these 'groups' are called. I know I was one of the 2 soprano groups. I read the second top line of music which was equally as high pitched as the other soprano group. There was another line for the some pitch I can't remember and one line for altos. Being 5 lines all up. I also can't remember if alto is the lowest pitch for young girls and whether the other 'group' which I can't remember the name of is higher or lower than altos. How sad am I LOL

The sheet music for the choral version is readily available at places like Sheet Music Plus - or download form Sheet Music Direct. My only experience with the song is seeing it in the movie Sweet Charity, where it sounds intentionally corny and stupid. I think of this as a novelty comedy piece, and can't imagine it as a choral performance.

There must be something to it, though - this thread has been kept alive forever by people who really seem to love the song.

Daddy started out in San Francisco,
Tootin' on his trumpet loud and mean.
Suddenly a voice said, "Go forth, Daddy.
Spread the picture on a wider screen."

And the voice said, "Daddy, there's a million pigeons
Ready to be hooked on new religions.
Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your common-law wife.
Spread the religion of the rhythm of life."

And the rhythm of life is a powerful beat,
Puts a tingle in your fingers and a tingle in your feet,

Daddy spread the gospel in Milwaukee,
Took his walkie-talkie to Rocky Ridge,
Blew his way to Canton, then to Scranton,
Till he landed under the Manhattan Bridge.

Daddy was the new sensation, got himself a congregation,
Built up quite an operation down below.
With the pie-eyed piper blowing, while the muscatel was flowing,
All the cats were go, go, going down below

I was trying so hard to find this site, I can't believe it, I will write the frist verse and Chorus.

When I started down the street last sunday

Why you should be glad in all four seasons
Hit the road neighbor leave your worries and strife
Spread the religion of the rythym of life!

Puts a tingle in your finger and a tingle in your feet

Interesting. I remember watching Sweet Charity very well, but didn't remember this song at all until this thread began. So, I watched the movie again, and I thought the song just didn't fit the rest of the play, and that it was a totally forgettable song. It's a nice attempt at making fun of shallow spirituality, but nothing really inspiring.

But apparently it strikes a chord with a lot of people, because the thread has lived forever. I wonder if they find it inspiring. Maybe I shouldn't rain on the parade of those who love this song.

Os oes 'na rhywun sy'n gwybod y geiria plis plis rowch nhw fama, diolch :)

Does anyone know the welsh lyrics Ysgol Glanaethwy were singing on Last Choir Standing? Or all the lyrics in welsh? I remember doing it in primary school, we were doing the chorus with our year 0 teacher's choir, but i don't know what the verses are. If anyone does know the welsh words please please put them here, thank you :)

We've just been working on The Rhythm of Life - the original cynical version, this is England after all - in a choir I belong to. We sang it in a concert the other day and it went down a bomb. Great fun to sing, with te different parts singing against each other.

One interesting difference and a question arising from it - we had the seventh line as
"Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your trouble and strife" - a phrase that is rhyming slang for "wife". And the version given here has "Hit the road, Daddy. Leave your common-law wife."

So is this a case of an American use of rhyming slang, or a change made here in England?

I don't suppose anyone would happen to know who first adapted Dorothy Fields lyric a la Sweet Charity to the version beloved by choirs?

The choral arrangement (starting "When I started down the street last Sunday") is by Richard Barnes in 1975 and is available from Shawnee Press:
