  • Lyrics
  • See the people walking down the street
    Fall in line just watching all their feet
    They don't know where they want to go
    But they're walking in time

    They got the beat
    They got the beat
    They got the beat
    Yeah, they got the beat

    All the kids just getting out of school
    They can't wait to hang out and be cool
    Hang around 'til quarter after twelve
    That's when they fall in line

    They got the beat
    They got the beat
    Kids got the beat
    Yeah kids got the beat

    Go-go music really makes us dance
    Do the pony puts us in a trance
    Do the Watusi just give us a chance
    That's when we fall in line

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

    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    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

    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beat
    We got the beatWriter/s: Charlotte Caffey

  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn January 23rd 1982, the Go-Go's performed "We Got The Beat" on the ABC-TV program 'American Bandstand'...
    And on that very same day it entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart; and on April 4th, 1982 it peaked at #2 (for 3 weeks) and spent 19 weeks on the Top 100 (and 9 of those 19 weeks it was on the Top 10)...
    It reached #3 on the Canadian RPM Top Singles chart...
    The three weeks it was at #2, the #1 record during that time was "I Love Rock ‘N Roll" by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts.
  • Guy from Woodinville, WaGreat energy! Interesting that this and Joan Jett's "I Love Rock and Roll" Were #1 and #2 at the same time in 1980. You go, girls!
