Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion
Love to hear it

Blow horns, you sure sound pretty!
Your bottom lips keep moving to the nitty gritty
But when you hear the scratch of the guitars scratching
Then you know that rhythm carries all the action

Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
(Move your feet when you feel the beat!)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion
Love to hear it

Flute player, play your flute, 'cause
I know that you want to get jumping
But you see, I've made up my mind about
It's got to be the rhythm, no doubt about it
'Cause when the guitar player starts playing with the syncopated rhythm
With the scratch, scratch, scratch
Makes me want to move my body, yeah yeah yeah!
And when the drummer starts beating that beat
Beating the outside beat with the syncopated rhythm
With the rat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat on a drum

Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion
Love to hear it
