Sure. It seems that most of us have played songs with only a vague knowledge of the lyrics and no doubt played our parts to our bands' satisfaction.

In groove-based music it's usually no biggie ... yeah yeah, I love you blah blah ... I want your body blah ... let's get it on ... let's boogie all night long ... you done me wrong ... blahdy blahdy blahdy blah ... at times it feels more dignified not to know the words :)
