    "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?" by the band Chicago, I believe.

    I concur...nothing says "horns" like Chicago.

    Interesting that you say that.:)



    As I was walking down the street one day

    A man came up to me and asked me what the time was that was

    on my watch, yeah

    And I said

    Does anybody really know what time it is

    I don't

    Does anybody really care

    care

    If so I can't imagine why

    about time

    We've all got time enough to cry

    Oh no, no

    And I was walking down the street one day

    A pretty lady looked at me and said her diamond watch had

    stopped cold dead

    And I said

    Does anybody really know what time it is

    I don't

    Does anybody really care

    care

    If so I can't imagine why

    about time

    We've all got time enough to cry

    Oh no, no

    And I was walking down the street one day

    Being pushed and shoved by people trying to beat the clock,

    oh, so I just don't know,

    I just don't know

    And I said, yes I said

    Background Vocal:

    People runnin' everywhere

    Don't know the way to go

    Don't know where I am

    Can't see past the next step

    Don't have to think past the last mile

    Have no time to look around

    Just run around, run around and think why

    Does anybody really know what time it is

    I don't

    Does anybody really care

    care

    If so I can't imagine why

    about time

    We've all got time enough to die

    Oh no, no

    Cool! Now I gotta play Chicago Transit Authority again.

    D@mn, now I have those horns playing in my head all night ;)

    One day, I'm going to score some Chicago tunes for acapella group - could be a lot of fun.

    I have a friend who put on a concert of all trombones -- can you imagine -- Layla being played by 20 trombones and a drumkit? Pure horn heaven.

    No, no, no. It was Derek and Clive's (Peter Cook and Dudley Moore's) "Jump"

    Lyrics

    Recording (starts about 30 seconds in)

    Speaking of Chicago, wasn't there a remix of their song Streetplayer not done by them? I just heard Streetplayer for the first time in a few years today. What a great song! One of Chicago's funkiest sounding.
