Lyrics

Mother spent ten years sitting by a window
Scared if she spoke she would die of a heart attack.
She listened as her dreams silently screamed,
They drowned like little dolphins caught in a fish net.
Dear world, I'm pleased to meet you.

Hey everybody when you walk the walk
You gotta back it all up but can you talk the talk.
Hey everybody, when I hear the knock
Don't wanna measure out my life to the tick of a clock.
Hey everybody, when my daddy died
He had a sad sad story living in his eyes.
Hey everybody when you walk the walk
You can't measure out your life to the tick of a clock.

I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum,
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum.

Hey everybody,
When you walk the walk
You gotta back it all up,
But can you talk the talk?
Hey everybody, when I hear the knock,
Don't wanna measure out my life to the tick of a clock.
Hey every hey everybody
Can you walk the walk?

I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum
(Say what, what, what you want?)
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum
(Say what, what, what you want?)
Walk to the beat of my own drum
(Say what, what, what you want?)
I wanna walk to the beat of my own drum.

Hey

Play to the beat of my own drum
I wanna sing to the beat of my own drum
I wanna pray to the beat of my own drum
I want to hang ten, five, say pleased to meet you.
Screw up to the beat of my own drum
I wanna take it out of town and do it to my drum.
Scream shout hide out
Win lose wipe out
Saunter down my street,
Make love to my baby
(To my baby)
Make love to my baby
(To my baby)

My own drum my own beat.
My own drum my own beat.

Hey did you ever get the feeling that it's really a joke,
You think you've got it figured out and then you find that you don't.
So you say goodbye to the world and now you're floating in space
You got no sense of nothing not even a time or a place.
Suddenly you hear it it's the beat of your heart,
And for the first time in your life you know your life is about to start.
Oh yeah, bring it on.

Hey everybody,
Hey everybody,
Hey everybody when you walk the walk the walk you gotta back it up,
Back it up back it up back it up.

I walk to the beat of my own drum
(Hey everybody, everybody)
I walk to the beat of my own drum
(Hey everybody, everybody)
I walk to the beat of my own drum
