“It’s All Right”

Written by: Curtis Mayfield

Released: October 1963

This song is a declaration that “it’s all right.” It was originally recorded by The Impressions with singer-songwriter, Curtis Mayfield, as lead singer.

Mayfield would always write songs inspired by things he’d hear people say. “It’s all right” was said by fellow band member, Fred Cash, while performing in Nashville as they discussed the future of their group (Source).

It’s All Right: Lyrics from “Soul” Cover

Say it’s all right.
Say it’s all right.
It’s all right, have a good time
‘Cause it’s all right, whoa, it’s all right.

Now listen to the beat.
Kinda pat your feet.
You’ve got soul, and everybody knows
That it’s all right, whoa, it’s all right.

When you wake up early in the mornin’
Feelin’ sad like so many of us do,
Just hum a little soul,
Make life your goal,
And surely somethin’s got to come to you.

Say it’s all right.
Say it’s all right.
It’s all right, have a good time
‘Cause it’s all right, whoa, it’s all right.

Now everybody clap your hands.
Give yourself a chance.
You’ve got soul, everybody knows
That it’s all right, whoa, it’s all right.
Whoa, it’s all right.

Now everybody clap your hands.
Give yourself a chance
‘Cause you’ve got soul (lemme say it again).
You’ve got soul.
You’ve got soul, and everybody knows
That it’s all right.
