Welcome Back

by Count Bass D



A chill, calm, mellow retro pop song from the hit television show Welcome Back Kotter (1976). John Sebastian took this song to number one and it is forever a classic. This take is a nod to the light at the end of this Coronavirus tunnel. It's a peaceful piano rendition aimed to help with the stress of these times. Count Bass D has delivered a version that will speak to all people.


Welcome back,
your dreams were your ticket out
Welcome back,
to the same old place that you laughed about
Well the names have all changed since you've hung around
But those dreams have remained and they've turned around
Who'd have thought they'd lead ya
Back here where we need ya

Welcome back,
You always could spot a friend,
Welcome back,
and I smile when I think how you must have been
And I know what a scene you were learning in
Was there something that made you come back again
What could ever lead ya
Back here where we need ya
Hey tease him a lot 'cause we got him on the spot
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back
