Lisa Howard - Listen to the Beat Lyrics

Just another opening night
[Verse 1]
Start living, get your foot tapping
Don't be caught napping, dead on your feet
Start living and-
Listen to the beat
Listen to the beat
Listen to the b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-pow!
[Verse 2]
Live fully, value each hour
Smell every flower you pull apart
Live fully and-
Listen to the beat of your heart
Listen to the beat of Broadway
Listen to the telephone ring
(Ba-da-ba-ding! Ba-da-ba-ding! Ba-da-ba-ding!)
[Pre-Chorus]
Listen to the beat of the city
Listen to the beat of the city
Hear the metropolis sing!
Drive quicker, that is our motto
Life in the auto ought to be fast
Drive quicker, but drive smart!
[Chorus]
And listen to the beat of your heart
Listen to the beat of your heart
Listen to the b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-
[Verse 3]
Just another opening night
Spotlights for the starlit occasion
Absolutely marvelous sight
Same as always
Audience is so polite
Making bravos into ovations
Finally, I have done something right
Just another opening night
The critics throw their backs out throwing perfect bouquets
(Ba-da-ba-ding!)
They will say how I am so resplendent in so many ways
Just another opening night
Almost feels like I'm on vacation
What a wonderful opening night
God damn perfect opening night
With me not on that stage
Not on that stage
Not on that stage!
