LyricsEdit

Rachel:
See the people walking down the street
Fall in line just watching all their feet
They don't know where they wanna go

Rachel with ND:
But they're walking in time
They got the beat
They got the beat
They got the beat
Yeah
They got the beat

Santana:
All the kids just getting out of school
They can't wait to hang out and be cool
Hang around 'til quarter after twelve

Santana with ND:
That's when they fall in line
They got the beat
They got the beat
Kids got the beat
Yeah
Kids got the beat

(Break)

Brittany:
Go-go music really makes us dance
Do the pony puts us in a trance
Do the watusi just gives us a chance

Brittany with ND:
That's when we fall in line, 'cuz
We got the beat
We got the beat
We got the beat
Yeah
We got it

Everybody, get on your feet (We got the beat)

ErrorsEdit

  • While Santana, Brittany, and Rachel are dancing/singing on the tables, they continuously change locations.

They go back to their original places in the next scene.
