All About the Beat

Can you hear that?
Sounds so good to me 
You know I feel that
Almost like my heartbeat
Has its own spirit
The rhythm moves my feet
Every time I’m near it
Can’t help but feel the beat
I just wanna groove to it
That melody soundin’ so sweet
In the clubs… they move to it
Some try to be discreet
Even babies have been made to it
Y’all know of what I speak
Comes in many forms… the music
From salsa to the reggae beat
From that poundin’ bass down in Miami
To the go-go in the DC streets
No matter how you view it
It’s where the heart and mind meet
Cause after all it’s just music
And it’s all about the beat
