Beat Goes On

Album: Hard Candy (2008)
  • Don't sit there like some silly girl
    If you wait too long it'll be too late
    I'm not telling you something new
    There ain't no time to lose
    It's time for you to celebrate

    So get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Get up, little girl)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (It's time, your world)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Your life, your choice)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (It's time, live it up)

    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes

    You don't have the luxury of time
    You have got to say what's on your mind
    Your head lost in the stars
    You'll never go far
    It's time for you to read the signs

    So get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Here comes, my hand)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Take it, you can)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (The time, is now)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (I'll show, you how)

    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes
    On and on, on the beat goes

    Say what you like
    Do what you feel
    You know exactly who you are
    The time is right now
    You got to decide
    Stand in the back or be the star

    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Here comes, my hand)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (Take it, you can)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (The time, is now)
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat (I'll show, you how)

    I can't keep waiting for you
    Anticipating that you've
    No time to lose
    I can't keep waiting for you

    Here's a impromptu I want you
    I'm going to tell you what I want to do to you
    Your girlfriend she wants to
    Beautiful
    Just flew in from Paris
    Voulez vouz?
    And the city that don't snooze
    Smooze amongst the whose who's
    And I use my celeb to get this one home
    Why everything that feel so good gotta be so wrong?
    Gimme room now
    I'm like a vampire on the full moon now
    And I don't know about you now
    But I think I wanna try something new now
    See what it do now
    And when you sat down
    Uh, cause you was losing your breath now
    Uh, cause you be doing it to death now
    She be doing E to F now
    What's left now?
    Mr. West now
    Can you get any more fresh now?
    I think I just did, just now
    Talking my shit, that's how
    I'm a professional, I admit that
    Flashing lights show I live that
    Fame is a drug, wanna hit that?
    'Cause I know exactly where to get that
    Did you get that?

    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up off a your seat
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up off a your seat now

    On and on
    The beat goes
    On and on

    'Cause they know exactly where to get that
    Did you get that?

    Let's go, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat
    Get down, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat

    On and on
    The beat goes
    On and on
    The beat goes
    On and on
    On and on
    On and on Writer/s: Madonna Ciccone, Kanye West, Pharrell Williams

  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdHey! I love this Song! Beat Goes On-Like Secret, Little Star and What It Feels Like for a Girl
    -is another beautiful lullaby dance for Lola-only this time Lola does a lovely hip-hop dance. With Madonna giving motherly advice to her beautiful Teenage Daughter, she does so with a smile on her Ciccone face and a joy in her Evita heart. For Madge and Lola, the beat will go on forever. One of the best concertos from Hard Candy. Dance On Madonna/Evita!
  • Mike from Matawan, NjA marriage made in purgatory. They're both talentless attention whores who were made for each other.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnKayne West is lame - I am surprised Madge would work with him.
