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

Blow horns you sure sound pretty
Your violins keep movin' to the nitty gritty
When you hear the scratch of the guitars scratchin'
Then you'll know that rhythm carries all the action
Woah yeah

Turn the beat around (turn it around)
Love to hear the percussion (yeah yeah yeah)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion
Love to hear it (got to hear it)

Turn the beat around
Love to hear the percussion
Turn it upside down (hey yeah)
Love to hear the percussion
Love to hear it

Flute player play your flute 'cause
I know that you want to get your thing off
But you see I've made up my mind about it
It's got to be the rhythm, no doubt about it, woah woah
'Cause when the guitar player start 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
He nails that beat with the syncopated rhythm
With the rat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat on the drums, hey

Turn the beat around (I'm talking about the beat)
Love to hear the percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion (love to hear the beat now)
Love to hear it
Love to hear it
Love to hear it
Love to hear it

Turn the beat around
Love to hear the percussion
Yeah
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion
Woah
Love to hear it
Turn the beat around, ooh
Love to hear the percussion (got to hear it)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion
Turn the beat around
Love to hear the percussion (love to hear it)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion
Turn the beat around
