Overview

"Serendipity" was demoed multiple times at Cello Studios in December 2001 and January 2002 during the sessions for Maladroit.

Lyrics

Gimme some lovin’
Gimme some lovin’
Gimme some lovin’

I said right now
You better do that

Told you that I want to
Told you that I want to
Told you that I have to

I said right now
You better do that

If it’s only rock and roll
How come music’s in my soul?
Turn it on
Come on let’s go
Yeah right now
Yeah

If it’s only rock and roll
How come music’s in my soul?
Turn it on
Come on, let’s go
Yeah right now
Right now
