See the people walking down the street.
Fall in line just watching all their feet.
They don't know where they wanna go.
But they're walking in time...
They got the beat (x3)
Yeah! they got the beat!
Makes us dance!
All the kids just getting out of school.
They can't wait to hang out and be cool.
Hang around 'til quarter after twelve.
That's when they fall in line...
They got the beat (x2)
Kids got the beat.
Yeah! kids got the beat!
Go-go music really makes us dance.
Do the pony puts us in a trance.
Do watusi, just give us a chance.
That's when we fall in line...
'cause (we got the beat x3)
Yeah! we got it!
We got the beat (x2)
W-w-w-w-we got the beat!
Everybody get on your feet.
We know you can dance to the beat.
Jump in, get down.
Round and round and round!
We got the beat (x8)
