Esther Ofarim – The Beat Goes On lyrics

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La-dee-da-dee-dee
La-dee-da-dee-da

Charleston was once the rage
Uh-huh
History has turned a page
Uh-huh
The maxiskirt's the current thing
Uh-huh
Teenie bopper is our new born king
Uh-huh

And the beat goes on, yeah the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La-dee-da-dee-dee
La-dee-da-dee-da

The grocery store's the supermart
Uh-huh
Little girls still break their hearts
Uh-huh
And men still keep on marching off to war
Electrically they keep a baseball score.

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La-dee-da-dee-dee
La-dee-da-dee-da

Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce
Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss
Life keeps going faster all the time
Bums still cry 'Hey buddy have you got a dime'

The beat goes on, the beat goes on
Drums keep pounding a rhythm to the brain
La-dee-da-dee-dee
La-dee-da-dee-da
The beat goes on and on and on...
