Let's invite the band in now, to play 'Cross the Line' with us.

You'll find the lyrics, and chords for this song, 'Cross the Line', at the 'Image Tab', and you can print them out by going to the 'Print This Lesson' tab.


Do your best to keep up with the rhythm, and remember, even if you make mistakes, you are getting excellent practice!

The best thing to do if you fall behind or make a mistake is to stop playing for a moment, and try to get your bearings. See if you can jump in with me the next time a new verse or chorus starts.

As tempting as it can be to want to go back and 'fix' your mistakes, it guarantees that you will be lagging behind as the song marches on without you!

Rather, make a mental note of your mistakes, and drill yourself on the skills you need to improve to have better luck keeping up with the song.

Eventually, it will all come together, and you'll be surprised to remember it ever felt this difficult!

CROSS the LINE (lyrics)

VERSE:
The music is cranking
The lighting is low
There’s one crowd in the kitchen
One crowd hall

Bob is grabbing a refill
Deb is killing the chips
Francine is a dancing queen
With her fingers on her hips

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line

VERSE:
Darlene is the hostess
She rents this pad
When she can't make the payment
She calls up her Dad

Don't need no invitation
Just show up if you know
That its party time in Apartment 9
Grab somebody and go

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line

BREAK: First half of verse

VERSE: (second half)
You gotta know when to call it
Gotta know when to go
No reason to stall it
You know when you know

CHORUS:
Everybody was getting funky
Everybody was feeling fine
Everybody was feeling lucky
Until they cross the line
