LaBelle, Patti - Release Yourself Lyrics




Re, re, re, re, re, re, re, re
Release yourself
Release, release
Release yourself

Every day's a new day, everyday was carved
Move in to the rhythm that's repeating in your heart
Every day's a challenge, every day we'll try
Lines got to find in toe to toe when I had you on

Re, re, re, re, re, re, re
Release yourself
Re, re, re, re, re, re, re
Release yourself

Living for tomorrow, got your dreams all laid away
Ah, there's so much pressure, you deserve a break today
(Release)
Every thing's a problem and you can't take much more
Turn up the music, get your body on the floor

Re, re, re, re, re, re, re
Release yourself
Re, re, re, re, re, re, re
Release yourself

Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself

Get up, get down, get up, get out
Do this, do that, solve your problem
Or no, you better jump that

Get up, go on, get up, get on
I do, I don't
Maybe I will but maybe I won't

Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself
Release, release, release yourself

You're overworked, you're underpaid
You gotta make it to the top, you gotta make the grade
You're overworked, you're underpaid
You gotta make it to the top, you gotta make the grade

Overtime, you're earning, earning
But you lose your mind, you crash and burn
Overtime, you're earning, earning
But you lose your mind, you crash and burn

Why don't you just try to relax?
Cool it, cool it, cool it
Just a little

Got to find a new way, got to make us count
Listen to the rhythm that's repeating in your heart
You've got the power, drink it off the shelf
If you don't enjoy your life, you can blame nobody else so

Why don't you let, let yourself go?
Why don't you let, let yourself go?
Why don't you let, let yourself go?
Why don't you let, let yourself go?

Release, why don't you? Why don't you?
Release, why don't you? Let it go
Release, why don't you? Why don't you?
Release, why don't you? Let it go

Why don't you? Why don't you?
Why don't you? Let it go
Why don't you? Why don't you?
Why don't you? Let it go

Let it go, let it
Let it go, let it
Let it go, let it
Let it go, go

Let it go, let it
Let it go, love it
Let it go, love it
Let it go

Let it re, re, re, release, release
(Release yourself, relax and let it go)
Release, release, release
(Release yourself)

Release, release, release
(Release yourself)
Release, release
(Release yourself)

  11. Evilclown13 Jz

    Not sure but it was on the Live in NY "video." That's how old it is. One of the best performances I've ever seen.

    James Darling Jr

    +Evilclown13 Jz It was live!

    Evilclown13 Jz

    +James Darling Jr Sure was. And amazing!

    James Darling Jr

    @Evilclown13 Jz I saw them, "Telling my age twice in the early days. The "Nightbird" concert is cemented in my soul.

    Evilclown13 Jz

    But it makes you feel so young. Big hair loud and a little crazy. Never let go of that feeling. Took a long time to find this place, it took a long time running around!

  12. Charles Marcus

    Now this shoulda been a single from her Burnin album because she reunited with Labelle on this song back in 1991.I like Patti's dress & hair in this performance & Sarah's suit.Does anyone know what day from 1991 was this concert on?

    Noodleydoo

    +Charles Marcus Hi Charles! I am Labelle's unofficial fan/historian, and even I had no idea that there was a Labelle reunion on this video when it came out. Nona and Sarah are not even listed on the cover of the DVD. When I eventually saw this performance, I was angry that they weren't mentioned. Look at the crowd--they went nuts but still no mention. I think this performance was stellar, with Nona being her usual outrageous self and made me understand all over again why Labelle was so special.

    pat gorden

    +Noodleydoo I think Patti wanted it to be a surprise to the fans, it was to me lol

    Noodleydoo

    Maybe--I never thought of that! If you're right, it certainly worked! The crowd was going nuts!

    pat gorden

    Yes it did work

  13. gregory rose

    Nona's Ass is Amazing! Still!

  14. Kevin E. Taylor

    SAY THAT!!!!

  15. Kevin E. Taylor

    They are all very very close. I did an interview with the reunited Labelle for BETJ (now Centric) and they were hilarious and FUN together! The "conflict" is the Sarah is just a shy person and while Patti and Nona are wild and gregarious onstage, she is just holding down the pocket. They love each other strong and they fight, but they have always said that. But there's no conflict. They DESTROYED the Apollo and Sarah tore it UP and Nona got up on the drums. IT WAS FIYAH! No bad blood!

  16. spintation

    I heard from someone very close to the reunion that there were tensions. Each lady has their own associates. I think it is evident Sarah is somewhat left out. Someone who attended Nona and Sarahs recent Lincoln Center performance said tensions were evident though I dont see it in the videos from that Laua Nyron tribute. Patti still wont talk about details of the group's "77 breakup. Some people have said Nona and Patti had a very close relationship.

    Ramardo T. Hunt

    spintation I believe Nona had suffered a mental breakdown during a concert and that has never been talked about.

  17. Frankie Fisher-Love

    NONA!!!! YOU BETTA WEAR THEM PANTS, YOU BLACK BITCH!!!!!!!LMAO!!!!

  18. jamm210

    at 4:48 Patti lets her 2 babes let loose for a while, then at 5:15 she reminds them why they were her "back-up"!! u smash em patti :D

  19. tlw11217

    @bearguySF , there's no bad blood between Patti and Sarah. Patti is just in love with Nona's drag and how fierce her body still is after all these years. Patti can't help herself, she just goes over there and plays with Nona more than she does with Sarah...btw, it's none throughout the industry how super nice and "ego-less" Patti is.

  20. TheDramaReport

    what happened to the video with pattie and luther vandross from the one night only videos

  21. LittleJ1576

    5:15 - 5:30 Patti know that's why she was the leader!

  22. tkafitness

    Release, release, release yourselfffffffffffffff!
    Go ahead girllllllllllllllllllllllllllllssssss!!!!!!!!!!

  23. spintation

    Nona is just the best--fearless and gracious.

    ramona2400 ricky

    I have met Nona and Patti several times they are always real and humble, just nice pretty sexy ladies.

  24. maine g

    lol @ 5:45

  25. hyred4u

    What a comeback! I haven't given the Back To Now CD a break unles I'm playing Something Silver, Chameleon, etc....

  26. Noodleydoo

    Itsthejoint--I agree. When I first saw this vid, I had no idea Nona and Sarah were even on the program. But when Nona came in from stage right in that amazing get-up--I was like YES!!!!! Nona do NOT change!

  27. MUSICENCYLOPEDIA

    It was and the song is featured on Patti's 1991 album Burnin'. Nona co-wrote this song and James Budd Ellison their late musical director produced this song. Budd is the man playing the piano. I saw a clip of them performing on a radio show recetnly live with an instrumental and they stil got it

  28. MUSICENCYLOPEDIA

    Nona co-wrote this song and Budd produced it. It should have been released as a single.

  29. MUSICENCYLOPEDIA

    Thank you. Nona has the right to show what God blessed her with. Nobody bitched and complained when Prince had his skinny ass showing on the MTV video awards so they need to leave Nona alone. Thanks for the great comment.

  30. ramardo1994

    I have a full dvd of LaBelle: Live In Concert and it is half and hour concert from 1974 to 1976 during their Nightbirds, Phoenix and Chameleon tour. It also has a bonus clip of Release Yourself from 1991 with Nona Hendryx, Sarah Dash and the lovely Patti LaBelle.

  31. Noodleydoo

    I love how Nona starts singing "Messing With My Mind" in the middle of this--very cool.

  32. zanthus7

    Nona has always been the punk rocker.

  33. Newport 100s in a box

    Love It!

  34. divinejulia

    OMG! I can't believe Nona wore that at Patti's show... she's not even wearing pants.... they're buttless chaps. I love this performance!!!! So rad!

    donita vann

    She didnt need pants!! Work em NONA!!!

  35. darcellbios

    i knoww right

  36. Kelly Thornburg

    Budd was jumping off that piano like Prince. I miss him....that band was tight....like Nona's a** in those pants.
