The big beat keeps you rockin' in your seat
The big beat keeps you rockin' in your sleep
Clap your hands and stomp your feet
You've got to move when you hear that beat
The big beat keeps you rockin' in your seat
 
Old Grandpa just made eighty years old
Man, he's crazy about that rock and roll
The big beat gets in your soul
Makes you jump, it makes you roll
Old Grandpa just made eighty years old
 
Peg Leg Joe threw his crutch away
The big beat makes you act this way
Come on gang, let's swing and sway
The big beat makes you act this way
Peg Leg Joe threw his crutch away
