The Lyrics

See the people dancing in the street.
All the time I am watching their feet.
Music that's where they wanna go.
This block party is fine.

We have the beat,
We have the beat,
We have the beat.

See why the music is coming cool.
Hey, there's a band playing on a stoop.
Sang and danced just until there were twelve.
Give 'em wine then they shine.

Bands' got the treat
It is so sweet
Wine is real sweet.

Go into the crowd,start up a dance.
Beat the drums, put us into a trance.
Now jump in the air and take up the stance.
Now jump back to be fine.

Guitar got the beat
Drum got the beat
Sax got the beat
We got the beat.

Everybody this is so neat,
Wish it'd last all night in the street,
Maybe til dawn.
But I think we're done!

I like your lines. Need to get a midi or something. Swiss cheese memory with this song for some reason. I'll be back to vote when I get a listen at the original.

Not bad. I thought the lines in the first stanza were similar to the real song...not the words themselves, but the "idea" of the song. I think that took away from the funniness for me. Don't get me wrong, I thought it was a good song, and the pacing was great, just more of a good, rewritten song than a funny song to me.
