"Eat to the Beat" as written by and Nigel Harrison Deborah Harry....
You gotta jump up, a-to the beat
Stand up, wo-on your feet
Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping
And you do it even when you're yapping

Hey, you got a sweet tooth and I remember
Stand up on your feet
Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping
Hey, you got a sweet tooth and I remember

Sitting in the kitchen eating peanut butter
Eat To The Beat
Yeah, you gotta, got you got the beat
Ah, sweeter sweeter you beat your meat

I know you do it. I know you do it
I seen you, seen you, seen you, seen you chewing
Hey, you got a sweet tooth and I remember
A sweeter treat, uh, you beat your meat

I know you do it, I know you do it
Oh, you got a sweet tooth and I remember
Standing on the corner with a piece of pizza
Eat To The Beat

Condition red!
You gotta jump up, a-to the beat
Stand up, wo-on your feet
Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping

And you do it even when you're yapping
Oh you got a sweet tooth and I remember
I seen you, seen you, you beat your meat
I know you do it, I know you do it

Hey, you got a tummy ache and I remember
Sitting in the bathroom drinking Alka Seltzer

Eat To The Beat
Eat To The Beat
Eat To The Beat

    General CommentThe narrator's male friend is high, so he's got the munchies and he's also polishing his sword ("you beat your meat")

    General CommentI had always liked the song, although it was well over a decade until I learned of the hidden meaning (masturbation).
    Still, it's a fun song.
    The whole album is pretty good really. I like the title track far better than "Dreaming", which was the single-release.

    General CommentYes, it's basically about wanking...and eating. Weird, but perfectly normal for Blondie.
