JOHN TRAVOLTA lyrics - You Can't Stop The Beat

JOHN TRAVOLTA
"You Can't Stop The Beat"
feat. Cast

[Tracy:]
You cant stop an avalanche
As it races down the hill
You can try to stop the seasons, girl
But ya know you never will
And you can try to stop my dancin' feet

But I just cannot stand still
'Cause the world keeps spinnin'
Round and round
And my heart's keeping time
To the speed of sound
I was lost til I heard the drums
Then I found my way

[Tracy & Link:]
'Cause you can't stop the beat

Ever since this old world began
A woman found out if she shook it
She could shake up a man
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it
The best that I can today

'Cause you cant stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna
But I never ask why

And if you try to hold me down
I'm gonna spit in your eye and say
That you cant stop the beat!

[Penny:]
You can't stop a river
As it rushes to the sea

[Seaweed:]
You can try and stop the hands of time
But ya know it just can't be

[Penny:]
And if they try to stop us, Seaweed,
I'll call the N Double A C P
'Cause the world keeps spinning
Round and 'round
And my heart's keeping time
To the speed of sound
I was lost til I heard the drums
Then I found my way

[Penny & Seaweed:]
'Cause you can't stop the beat

[Penny & Seaweed:]
Ever since we first saw the light
A man and woman liked to shake it
On a saturday night
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it
With all my might today

'Cause you cant stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise
We're dreamin' of
But you cannot stop the rhythm
Of two hearts in love to stay
'Cause you cant stop the beat!

[Edna:]
You cant stop my happiness
'Cause I like the way I am
And you just can't stop my knife and fork
When I see a christmas ham
So if you don't like the way I look
Well, I |ust don't give a damn!

[Edna & Ensemble:]
'Cause the world keeps spinning
Round and 'round
And my heart's keeping time
To the speed of sound
I was lost til I heard the drums
Then I found my way

[Edna & Company:]
'Cause you cant stop the beat

Ever since this old world began
A woman found out if she shook it
She could shake up a man
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it
The best that I can today

'Cause you cant stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the sun in the sky
You can wonder if you wanna
But I never ask why
And if you try to hold me down
I'm gonna spit in your eye and say
That you cant stop the beat!

[Maybell:]
Oh oh oh
You can't stop today
As it comes speeding down the track
Child, yesterday is hist'ry
And it's never coming back

[Maybell & Ensemble:]
'Cause tomorrow is a brand new day

[Maybell:]
And it don't know white from black

[Ensemble:]
Yeah!

[Maybell & Ensemble:]
'Cause the world keeps spinning
'Round and 'round
And my heart's keeping time
To the speed of sound
I was lost til I heard the drums
Then I found my way
'Cause you cant stop the beat

[All:]
Ever since we first saw the light
A man and woman liked to shake it
On a saturday night
And so I'm gonna shake and shimmy it
With all my might today
'Cause you can't stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the rain from above
They can try to stop ths paradise
We're dreaming of
But you cannot stop the rhythm
Of two hearts in love to stay
You can't stop the beat!

Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah
Aah, aah, aah

[All:]
Come on you Vantussle's
Come and shake your fanny muscles

[Amber and Mrs. Vantussle:]
But we can't

[All:]
Yes you can

[Amber and Mrs. Vantussle:]
But we can't

[All:]
Yes you can

[Amber and Mrs. Vantussle:]
Yes we can

You can't stop the beat
Ever since we first saw the sun
It seems vantussle girls are allways tryin
Please someone
But now we're gunna shake and shimmy
And just have some fun today

[All:]
And you can't stop
The motion of the ocean
Or the rain from above
You can try to stop the paradise
We're dreaming of
But you cannot stop the rhythm
Of two hearts in love to stay
'Cause you can't stop the beat
You can't stop the beat!!
You can't stop the beat!!
You can't stop the beat!!
You can't stop the beat!!
