The Lyrics

Doncha just LUV merged parodies?
(saxophone intro)

The beat goes on.
Goes on again.
The rhythm pounds.
From drums to brain.
The Charleston raged.
But page is turned.
A teenage king.
Girls hearts get burned.
And the beat goes on.

(saxophone break)

Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Off to war, men marching.
They'll be looking out for you!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me can you hear it?

The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
Beating, beating beating!
It's on the street!

The beat goes....
on!

The grandmas sit
and reminisce.
The chase is set
to find a kiss.
And the cars will break
faster all the time.
But the bums still take
more than just a dime!
And the beat goes on!

(saxophone break)

Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Baseball score, they're keeping
e-lec-tric-ly, just for you!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Oh-ho-whoa-oh!
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me can you hear it?
Tell me can you hear it?

The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
Beating, beating beating!
It's on the street!

The beat goes on!
Beating getting louder!
The beat goes on!
Spilling my clam chowder!
The beat goes on!
Beating, beating beating!
It's on the street!

The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
The beat goes on!
Beating, beating beating!
It's on the street!

(repeat 'til fade)
