  • Ooh, crazy's what they think about me
    Ain't gonna stop 'cause they tell me so
    'Cause 99 miles per hour baby,
    Is how fast that I like to go.

    Can't keep up with my rhythm
    Though they keep trying.
    Too quick for the lines they throw.
    I walk to the sound of my own drum,
    We go, they go, we go, hey yeah yeah yeah

    Oh, here we go
    Feel it in my soul
    Really mean it, mean it, so go
    Gotta feel it, honey takes control
    Really mean it, mean it

    I wake up to the city of angels
    To see my name headlining the coast
    They say I'm a walking dreamer, baby
    If I stop they would make the show

    Can't keep up with my rhythm
    Though they keep trying.
    Too quick for the lines they throw.
    I walk to the sound of my own drum,
    We go, they go, we go, hey yeah yeah yeah

    Oh, here we go
    Feel it in my soul
    Really mean it, mean it, so go
    Gotta feel it, honey takes control
    Really mean it, mean it

    Hey, here we go
    Feel it in my soul
    Really mean it, mean it, so go
    Gotta feel it, honey takes control
    Really mean it, mean it

    Everybody walk
    Everybody walk
    Everybody walk, walk, walk

    Oh, here we go
    Feel it in my soul
    Really mean it, mean it, so go
    Gotta feel it, honey takes control
    Really mean it, mean it

    Oh, here we go
    Feel it in my soul
    Really mean it, mean it, so go
    Gotta feel it, honey takes control
    Really mean it, mean it

  • Miss Carroll from Helena, MtI can't remember which episode it was, but..... I believe Fitz and the Tantrums "The Walker" was also used in one of the season 1 episodes of the Umbrella Academy. (The bank heist flash back.)
  • Randy from Rio De Janeiro, -I kinda got the impression the video was a homage to the old Kevin Bacon movie "Footloose".
