We re all going on a summer holiday
Vigilantes coming out to follow me
Heard somebody say they re out to collar me
Anybody wanna swallow me?

It takes two to tumble, it takes two to tango
Speak up, dont mumble if you re in the combo
On the beat, on the beat

Till a man comes along and he says
Have you been a good boy, naver played with your toy?
Though you never enjoy, such a pleasure to employ

See your friends in the state their in
See your friends getting undet their skin
See your friends getting taken in

Well, if you only knew the things you do to me
I d do anything to confuse the enemy
Theres only one thing wrong with you befriending me
Take it easy, I think you re bending me

I ve been a bad boy with the standard leader
My neighbours rewing up his Vauxhail Viva
On the beat, on the upbeat

Till a man comes along and he says
Have you been a good boy, never played with your toy?
Though you never enjoy, such a pleasure to employ

See your friends walking down the street
See your friends never quite complete
See your friends getting under their feet

Oh I dont want to disease you
But Im no good with machinery
Oh I dont wanna freeze you
Stop looking at the scenery
I keep thinking about your mother
Oh I dont wanna lick them
I dont wanna be a lover
I just wanna be your victim

I dont go out much late at night
I dont go out much at all
Did you think you were the only one
Who was waiting for a call?
On the beat, on the upbeat

Till a man comes along and he says
Have you been a good boy, never played with your toy?
Though you never enjoy, such a pleasure to employ

See your friends treat me like a stranger
See your friends despite all the arrngements
See your friends nothing here has changed

Just the beat
Just the beat
Just the beat
Just the beat
