The Beat

I wonder wonder why
Why canít people hear the beat
Wonder wonder why
Itís a revolution beat

Canít you hear the beat Ė canít you - canít you
Canít you hear the beat
I want to question what itís all about
I want to know whatís behind those lies
I want it straight no room for doubt

I want to know whatís behind those cold steel eyes

Canít you hear Ė hear the beat (4x)

I say my life is mine - people take it from me
Mine all mine - are they too blind to see?
I say nowís the time Ė people listen to me
Nowís the time to stand up and be seen

Canít you feel the beat - donít you want to move your feet?

Canít you feel the beat Ė get up on your feet (2x)

I wonder wonder why
Why canít people hear the beat
Wonder wonder why
Itís a revolution beat

Canít you hear the beat, that intoxicating beat
Itís a revolution revolution revolution beat


Lyrics by Ralph Franklin 1987
