Give Me Back The Beat

Give Me Back The Beat

Ringo Starr

Living on the street
Tonight's a lonely place to be all right, oh lord
The rhythm of the city, I don't find it pretty anymore
Like I did before
You walked out my door

Give me back the beat, give me back the beat
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete
If you come back to me, I'll be dancing in the street
I miss the two we had before that made me tap my feet
That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone
(She's really gone)
Give me back the beat and let's rock on

I feel the pounding of your heart
But I'm alone here in the dark, it's true
Alleys filled with misery
Shadows of your memories break through
I never knew
How much I needed you

Give me back the beat, give me back the beat
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete
If you come back to me, I'll be dancing in the street
I miss the two we had before that made me tap my feet
That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone
(She's really gone)
Give me back the beat and let's rock on
(Oh, rock on baby)

I won't sleep, baby, I can't eat
I'm in too deep
It's a high fall running into a brick wall all by yourself
But I know what will help

That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone
(Now that you're gone)
So give me back the beat, you've got to

(Give me back the beat, give me back the beat)
Give me back the only thing that makes my life complete
If you come back to me, I'll be dancing in the street
I miss the two we had before that made me tap my feet
That used to rock this boy asleep now that you're gone
(She's really gone)
So give me back the beat and let's rock on
(Oh, rock on baby)
So give me back the beat and let's rock on
(Rock on)
Give me back the beat and let's rock on

(Oh, rock on baby)
Let's rock on, baby, mmm
(Oh, rock on baby)
Gary's rockin' Mark's rockin' on
(Oh, rock on baby)
Steve's rockin' on Ringo's rockin' on!
(Oh, rock on baby)
Come on, rock!
(Oh, rock on baby)
Let's rock on.
