"Beat out Dat Rhythm on a Drum" as written by and Elmer ...
I'll tell you why I wanna dance.
It ain' de sweetness in de music~
I like de sweetness in de music,
But dat ain' why I wanna dance.
It's sumpin' thumpin' in de bass,
A bumpin' underneath de music.
Dat bum-bum-bumpin' under music
Is all I need
To start me off.
I don't need nuthin' else to start me off.

Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
An' I don' need no tune at all!
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
An' I don' need no tune at all!

I feel it beatin' in my bones,
It feel like twen'y millyun tomtoms.
I know dere's twen'y millyun tomtoms
Beatin' way down deep inside my bones.

I feel it beatin' in my heart,
An' den I get a kin' o' dream
An' in my dream it kin' o' seem
Dere's jus' one heart
In all de worl'~
Dere ain't but one big heart for all de worl'.

Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Dere's one big heart for all de wor'!
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat me dat rhythm on a drum,
Dere's one big heart for all de worl'!

An' now dat heart is beatin' fast,
An' dat's a rhythm I kin dance to,
I'm mighty glad I got a chance to,
Wid dat one big heart dat's beatin' fast.
Tomorrow mornin' let it rain,
Tomorrow mornin' let it pour,
Tonight we's in de groove together~
Ain' gonna worry 'bout stormy weather~
Gonna kick ol' trouble out de door!

Beat out ol' trouble on a drum,
Beat out ol' trouble on a drum,
Beat out ol' trouble on a drum,
An' kick his carcass through de door!
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
Beat out dat rhythm on a drum,
An' kick ol' trouble out de door!
Kick 'im out de door!
Kick 'im out de door!
Kick 'im out de door!
