Beat Surrender
The Jam Lyrics


Beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender

All the things that I care about (are packed into one punch)
All the things that I'm not sure about (are sorted out at once)
And as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end
That bullshit is bullshit, it just goes by different names

Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender

All the things that I shout about (but never act upon)
All the courage and the dreams that I have (but seem to wait so long)
My doubt is cast aside, watch phonies run to hide
The dignified don't even enter in the game

Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender

And if you feel there's no passion
No quality sensation
Seize the young determination
Show the fakers you ain't foolin'
You'll see me come runnin'
To the sound of your strummin'
Fill my heart with joy and gladness
I've lived too long in shadows of sadness

My doubt is cast aside, watch phonies run to hide
The dignified don't even enter in the game

Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender...

Beat surrender -
Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the beat surrender
All the things that I care about (are packed into one punch)
All the things that I'm not sure about (are sorted out at once)
And as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end
That bullshit is bullshit, it just goes by different names
All the things that I shout about (but never act upon)
All the courage and the dreams that I have
(but seem to wait so long)
My doubt is cast aside, watch phonies run to hide
The dignified don't even enter in the game
And if you feel there's no passion
No quality sensation
Seize the young determination
Show the fakers you ain't foolin
You'll see me come runnin
To the sound of your strummin
Fill my heart with joy and gladness
I've lived too long in shadows of sadness

As for their music, it is pretty remarkable that they were able to write great, ever-lasting songs in as many styles as they could without seeming or sounding phony, contrived or artificial. And I love that Bruce's voice seems like the higher-end of Paul's vocal registry. A match made in heaven, the three of them!

As much as I love The Jam, this song and this video. Poor Paul looks absolutely lost without his guitar. And he couldn't exactly cut a rug. Theres another video of him performing Beat Surrender live on The Tube. He's armed with his axe and looks much more comfortable.

Looks ok to me- just a little self conscious of the camera . Guess its awkward miming to songs that have belt to them when theres probably some tinny speakers playing and the camera is on you . Dance style is the same as one of TSC first releases Speak Like a Child and he looks like hes having a lot more fun there .

Jeff Lamp

100% agree
He went through so many phases .
A very self conscious individual.

Last track by the brilliant The Jam. Most underrated UK band of all time compared to all the other 80's bands, so many great songs, Bitterest pill, David Watts, down in the tube station at midnight, smithers Jones are my favourites

Ebony Couley

This band has just a whole new feel to it it's so free and I feel happy and refreshed

Elijah Saxton 88

I love how the drum set is right in front of the stage

David Leystar

This was The Jam's last single and farewell TOTP appearance before calling it a day. The piano and brass sections of this song does sound like The Style Council which would become Paul Weller's next project soon after.

Paul Davies

The saddest tune in the history of music. I was a 15 year old boy, got my vespa on order for when I turned 16 and the band I loved was no more

Joe Spirit

On a plus point, ….bloke in ‘from the Jam’ is better than Weller!
