Fleetwood Mac: Don't Stop



Written by: Christine McVie
Recorded: 1976
Released: March 1977 (UK): July 6, 1977 (USA)
Album: Rumours
Label: Warner Brothers

This is a song that I enjoyed back in the late 1970s, performed by a group that were highly popular then, Fleetwood Mac, a British-American band. The song is a catchy tune that speaks about looking forward and not back when things take an unexpected turn for the worse. The advice is not always appropriate, of course, since reflection and evaluation are necessary in human decision making. Yet, in some cases it makes perfect sense. I am posting it now for no reason other than nostalgia, so, in a sense I am looking back. The album's title is "Rumours."

Fleetwood Mac: The album Rumours contained the hit single, "Don't Stop.": 1977.
To date the album has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, ranking it among the top- ten selling albums of all time.

Don't Stop
Written by Christine McVie.

If you wake up and don't want to smile,
If it takes just a little while,
Open your eyes and look at the day,
You'll see things in a different way.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Why not think about times to come,
And not about the things that you've done,
If your life was bad to you,
Just think what tomorrow will do.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

All I want is to see you smile,
If it takes just a little while,
I know you don't believe that it's true,
I never meant any harm to you.

Don't stop, thinking about tomorrow,
Don't stop, it'll soon be here,
It'll be, better than before,
Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Don't you look back,
Don't you look back.
