Beat of My Drum
Nicola Roberts Lyrics


Once upon a time I pressed rewind
Two left feet, I had no beat
Baby in the corner learning quick
Keep up, keep up, keep up
Graduation take a bow
See how strong you've made me now
Two steppin' all over me, then cha cha cha cha
I'm in!

Oh don't it make your heart go wow
Oh how I've turned this whole thing round

L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum
L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum

Leader of the pack get on that track
Swing your back and don't look back
Captain attending, too much to handle
Too hot, the pan goes pop
Blow your trumpet like you do

I put on my marchin' boots
I know we can work it out
Let's step into the groove

Oh don't it make your heart go wow
Oh how I've turned this whole thing round

L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum
L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum

L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum
L.O.V.E
Dance to the beat of my drum
Dance to the beat of my drum

This was ahead of it's time - people weren't ready for minimalist beats like this back then and someone singing in this style with a heavy accent

Raphael

The beat is like a mix of Beyoncé's Run The World and Britney Spears' Femme Fatale album. Both are from 2011 and were hits so I think this was totally in the right time.
The singing style maybe, it's more from the mid 2000s than 2011. But then, it's not ahead either.

Jake Gutteridge

@TellyArchive I agree, I can barely hear it. She is even singing in an American accent in parts.

GLAT15

@hawaiianflip808 I can hear a heavy southern accent
Maybe it's the accent from her birthplace (Stamford) that stands out in this particular song (even though she has a Scouse accent XD)

This was ahead of its time. It wouldn't get nearly as many dislikes if it was released today

Arron Wright

I love Nicola and think the number of dislikes is shocking. However, "ahead of its time" implies that Robyn and M.I.A. had no influence here, which is... a stretch.

SheWolf95

I wondered the same... 2020 and still is something wrong with this song..too much chaos

Naur King

Sis, there's a reason why this has many dislikes... not because is bad.
