Head Over Heels the Musical - We Got the Beat Lyrics

MOPSA:
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line, just watching all their feet
They don't know where they wanna go
But they’re walking in time

ALL:
They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
Yeah
They got the beat!

QUEEN GYNECIA:
See the kids just gettin' out of school
They can't wait to hang out and be cool
Hangin’ 'round 'til quarter after 12
That's when they fall in line

ALL:
They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
Yeah
Kids got the beat!

(Rock interlude)

PAMELA:
Go-Go music really makes us dance

MUSIDORUS:
Doin' the pony puts us in a trance

DAMETAS:
Do what you see just give us a chance

ALL:
That's when we fall in line

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

*shouts*

KING BASILIUS, spoken]
Glory to Arcadia, our matchless realm!

ALL:
*shouts*

KING BASILIUS: (spoken)
Gather we here at the summer solstice to celebrate our legacy!

ALL:
We got the beat!

KING BASILIUS: (spoken)
For ages, the beat has ordered our lives

MOPSA: (spoken)
Gift from the gods of their truth and design

QUEEN GYNECIA: (spoken)
The beat heats our grapes and turns them to wine!

MUSIDORUS: (spoken)
It threshes our wheat and gives us to dine

PAMELA: (spoken)
We heed its rhythm and follow its form

DAMETAS: (spoken)
It keeps us in line and dictates the norm

PHILOCLEA: (spoken)
Our nation made strong by brilliant design!

KING BASILIUS: (spoken)
Arcadians swear

ALL: (spoken)
Our beat is divine!

(sings)
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
Woo!
We got the beat (oh, oh, oh) we got the beat
We got the beat (oh, oh, oh) we got the beat
We got the beat (oh, oh, oh) we got the beat
We got the beat (oh, oh, oh) we got the beat
We got the beat (oh, oh, oh) we got the beat
We got the beat, we got the beat (oh, oh, oh)
We got the beat!
