Turn the Beat Around is a song recorded by Vicki Sue Robinson in 1976.

It was used as part of the Awesome Adventure Machine show; it was later re-recorded as part of the September 2007 Show.


Lyrics (1996)[]

Helen: Turn it upside down (Jasper: Oh, sing it!)
Oh, whoa, yeah (Pasqually: Mmm-hmm!)
Turn it upside down (Jasper: Here we go!)

All: Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion
Love to hear it

Helen: Blow horns you sure sound pretty
Your violins keep movin' to the nitty gritty
When you hear the scratch of the guitars scratchin'
Then you'll know that rhythm carries all the action (Jasper: Oh, yeah!)

All: Turn the beat around
Love to hear percussion
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion
Love to hear it

Turn the beat around
Love to hear the percussion (Helen: Whoa, don't run away)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear the percussion (Helen: Yeahhhh!)
Love to hear it

Helen: Flute player, do it sweet now
'Cause I know that you want to get your thing off (Jasper: Yes I do!)
But you see I've made up my mind about it
It's got to be the rhythm, no doubt about it (Pasqually: Yes, Helen!)

'Cause when the guitar player start playing
With the syncopated rhythm, with the scratch, scratch, scratch
Makes me want to move my body (Munch: Oh, yeah!) (Jasper: Unh!)
And when the drummer starts beating that beat
He nails that beat with the syncopated rhythm
With the rat, tat, tat, tat, tat, tat on the drums (Munch: That's right, Pasqually!) (Jasper: Ho!)

All: Turn the beat around (Helen: Oh, yeah)
Love to hear percussion (Chuck E.: Oh, yeah) (Helen: Ohhhh)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion (Helen: Whoaaaa) (Pasqually: Yes, it's right) (Chuck E.: Come on!)
Love to hear it
Love to hear it
Love to hear it
Love to hear it (Jasper: HEY!)

Chuck E.: Whoa-ho-ho! This percussion is great stuff, but it's time we got a few more of you kids into the act! Yeah-heh! Now hang on, kids! We're gonna turn it up and turn it upside down!
Jasper: Come on, now!
Munch: Yeah, here we go! A'right, now take it, Helen!

Helen: Turn it upside down now
Oh, whoa, yeah (Munch: Whoaaaaaaa)
Whoa, turn it upside down

All: Turn the beat around (Helen: Yeahhhh!)
Love to hear percussion (Helen: Yeahhhh!) (Munch: Oh, yeah!)
Turn it upside down
Love to hear percussion (Helen: Oh, yeah!)

Chuck E.: Turn it upside down,
Turn it right side up
And a front way back
And a back way front (Helen: Mmmmmm)
Come on! (Jasper: Gonna love it... yeah!) (Helen: Yeahhhh!)

All: Turn the beat around (Helen: Whoooo)
Love to hear percussion (Helen: Ohhhhh) (Munch: Oh, yeah!)
Turn it upside down (Helen: Yeah, yeah)
Love to hear percussion (Chuck E.: Come on, ya people!)

Turn the beat around (Helen: Ohhhhh)
Love to hear percussion (Helen: Yeah, yeah)
Turn it upside down (Jasper: Oh, yeah!)
Love to hear percussion
