Don't Stop That Crazy Rhythm
Modern Romance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

The music's getting closer stay around,
just wait and see
Get up close and don't look around
Keep up and stick with me
I see a light, look where (look there)
It's closer all the time
Let's stay, let's play and make this moment
Yours and mine.

Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy rhythm.
Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy beat.
Next time you think
you've got that happy feeling
Don't stop that rhythm
Getting to your feet.

We're kissing, dancing
Just a touch romancing
Tomorrow never comes
Well so it's said
The taste of honey
No-one thinks of chancing
Next time don't think, don't talk
Let's do the things we read.

Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy rhythm.
Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy beat.
Next time you think
you've got that happy feeling
Don't stop that rhythm
Getting to your feet.

You mama says it's time for bed
But you got that music in your head
Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy beat.

Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy rhythm.
Don't stop, Don't stop, Don't stop
that crazy beat.
Next time you think
you've got that happy feeling




Don't stop that rhythm
Getting to your feet.

日本の洋楽カバーの先駆者である亡き西城秀樹さんの歌も是非聴いて下さい❗秀樹は時代を先取りしていたので世間が追いついて行けなかったと思うのです。日本では最高のアーティストです❤なにしろかっこ良いです。両方共❗

Has anybody ever realised the beat is like an Adam And The Ants drum-beat? And there is a Jungle Book type vibe there as well.

@Eadwig

I will try to find some time and do that :-)

@anaelhonings8683

I guess it was inspired by the likes of Benny Goodman :-)
