"Cheer It On" as written by and Alsop Monks....
Operator, get me the president of the world
This is an emergency

Do your neighbor a favor
Collect their morning paper
And clip out all the sad bits, no one wants to read that
Let them take their kids to school and the zoo in peace

When you're standing near
Tokyo Police Club
When you're standing next to me
Tokyo Police Club
When you take the tunnel
Arresting you for being in love

Caught the fever that's spreading
Do you have a warm bed, we could stay the night in?
It's all sick boys in this house, no one wants to feed us
Dumb kid, you should have hid, you'd stand a better chance there

When you're standing near
Tokyo Police Club
When you're standing next to me
Tokyo Police Club
Lost in the Pacific
Arresting you for being in love

    General Commentthis band is AMAZING. so indie, so new, so fresh.
    i am SO MAD at MTV for playing clips of their music for stupid shows like that show about surfing or whatever.
    they are BETTER than that.
    so yah.

    General Commenti was really surprised that this song only had 4 comments previous to mine, considering its prbly one of their more wellknown works. this song is an awesome way to start out any dance warm up or excercize routine. dave's acoustic cover on youtube prove that even without the glitz and the glam 'cheer it on' is a beautiful song.
