You can't stop an avalanche as it races down the hill
You can try to stop the seasons but you know you never will
And you can try to stop my dancing feet
But I just cannot stand still
'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
And my heart's keeping time to the speed of sound
I was lost 'til I heard the drums and I found my way
'Cause you can't stop the beat

5, 6, 7, 8!

Ever since this whole world began,
A woman found out if she shook it she could shake up a man
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it the best that I can today
'Cause you can't stop the motion of the ocean or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna but I'll never ask why
If you try and hold me down, I'm gonna spit in your eye and say
That you can't stop the beat

You can't stop a river as it rushes to the sea
You can try to stop the hands of time but you know it just can't be
And if they try to stop us Artie, I'll call the NAACP
'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
And my heart's keeping time to the speed of sound
I was lost 'til I heard the drums and I found my way
'Cause you can't stop the beat

Ever since we first saw the light,
A man and woman like to shake it on a Saturday night
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it with all of my might today
'Cause you can't stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise we're dreaming of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two heart's in love today
'Cause you can't stop the beat

You can't stop the day as it comes speeding down the track
Shout 'Yesterday is history and it's never coming back!'
'Cause tomorrow is a brand new day and it don't know white from black
'Cause the world keeps spinning round and round
And my heart's keeping time to the speed of sound
I was lost 'til I heard the drums, then I found my way
'Cause you can't stop the beat

Yeah!
Ever since we first saw the sun
A man and woman like to shake it when the day is done
So I'm gonna shake and shimmy it and have some fun today
'Cause you can't stop the motion of the ocean or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise we're dreaming of
But you cannot stop the rhythm of two hearts in love today
'Cause you can't stop the beat
You can't stop the beat
You can't stop the beat!
