6. Mixing The Beats
CHORUS:
(Choir)
Everybody’s moving to the Beat

Everybody’s getting to their feet

In the clubs, at home and in the street
Music makes us dance each time we meet
BRIDGE:
Bah bup bah bah
Hey DJ mix us up some beats now


Bah bup bah bah
Hey won’t you serve us up a treat now

VERSE:
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom Hip hop, hip hop, hip, hip, hip, hip hop

Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom
Boom-Ch! b-boom-boom-Ch! Boom

…….A new dance sound

CHORUS:
Everybody’s moving to the Beat

Everybody’s getting to their feet


In the clubs, at home and in the street

Music makes us dance each time we meet

BRIDGE:
Bah bup bah bah
Hey DJ mix us up some beats now

Bah bup bah bah
Hey won’t you serve us up a treat now

When the Charleston was the rage
From New York to Adelaide
The Floating Palais on the Torrens
In the Jazz Age

Jitterbug, Jive and Boogie-Woogie
Swing them around to the big band sound

Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Dance, dance, rock’n’roll
Do the Twist and do the Stroll
Dance craze crazy, that’s rock’n’roll

(Soloist & Choir)
Oh, oh, oh!
D-I-S-C-O
The music is loud
I’m a part of the crowd
At the D-I-S-C-O
D-I-S-C-O
(DJ/Rapper)
Hey everybody I’m your DJ
Won’t you listen to music that the DJ play
Don’t just sit there in your seat
Get up, stand up ‘cos you’re in for a treat

It doesn’t matter if your all alone
Cos when the music starts there’s a party goin’ on
Whether you’re happy or feeling blue
There’s a beat that will be just right for you

House, Techno, Rave, Trance,
Drum’n’Bass and Euro Dance
Electronica, Jungle, Garage
Old Skool, Breakbeat, br-br-br-Breakbeat

DJs started rapping to the Beat
In the nineteen-eighties when they took it to the street
To add to the rhythm and increase the heat
They would scratch, scratch, scratch to the Beat


Spinning on your head on your back and on your feet
Breakdancing to the hip hop beat
Spinning those records up down and around
Mix it all together for a new dance sound
From Africa long ago, far away
To everybody here in the house today
From the Jazz Age and the flap, flap, flapper
To the DJs, clubbing and the rap, rap, rapper

The Beat is in you and the Beat is in me
The Beat will set your soles free!

OK everybody in the house out there
Come join our party there’s music in the air

That’s our story and it’s all true
The story of how the Beat came through

It came from the heart and it moved our feet
Everybody dance now to that Beat!
