Say Hey-Michael Franti

Here’s yet another example of a song, as well as performer that I had never heard of before it was requested by the bridal couple. What a great song! No deep hidden meaning…just a great upbeat dance beat and incredibly simple sing-along lyrics.

Check out the lyrics:
This one goes out to you and yours, worldwide…

I say, hey, I be gone today but I be back around the way
Seems like everywhere I go, the more I see, the less I know
But I know one thing that I love you, baby girl
I love you, I love you, I love you

I’ve been a lot of places all around the way
I’ve seen a lot of joy, and I’ve seen a lot of pain
But I don’t want to write a love song for the world
I just want to write a song about a boy and a girl

I say, hey, I be gone today but I be back around the way
Seems like everywhere I go, the more I see, the less I know
But I know one thing that I love you, baby girl
I love you, I love you, I love you.

Used as a Recessional,  it sends your guests, relaxed and dancing their way into the Cocktail Hour to get that all important first drink. But used as a First Dance, it announces to your guests that you are ready, willing and delighted to set the stage for a truly great party.

As with so many of the songs we play, “Say Hey” by Michael Franti & Spearhead was a song request made by one of our bridal couples…allowing me to pass it on to you. Start dancing!

Let me know what you think.
