"We Got The Beat" as written by and Charlotte Caffey....
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line just watching all their feet
They don't know where they want to go
But they're walking in time

They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
Yeah, they got the beat

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
They got the beat
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 the Watusi just give us a chance
That's when we fall in line

'Cause we got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
Yeah we got it!

We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
Everybody get on your feet we got the beat
We know you can dance to the beat we got the beat
Jumpin' get down we got the beat
Round and round and round

We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat

    General CommentIt's an addictive song. And it's sad that there are so few comments for it. I guess that has to do with the age of the song and the age of the users of this site. This song was HUGE. It was catchy and you could dance to it, which was pretty much what 80's music was ALL about.....little substance (lyrically) but lots of fun.
