You got to jump up, a-to the beat Stand up, wo-on your feet Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping And you do it even when you're yapping Hey, you got a sweet tooth and I remember Stand up on your feet Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping Hey, you got a sweet tooth and I remember Sitting in the. kitchen eating peanut butter Eat To The Beat. You got to jump up, a-to the beat Stand up, wo-on your feet Toes are tippi tippi tippi tapping And you do it even when you're yapping Oh you got a sweet tooth and I remember I seen you, seen you, you beat your meat I know you do it, I know you do it Hey, you got a. tummy ache and I remember Sitting in the bathroom drinking Alka Seltzer Eat To The Beat Eat To The Beat Eat To The Beat. Eat To The Beat" Track Info.

With Eat to the Beat, all that smug certainty has been vindicated. Faced with the challenge of following up the million-selling Parallel Lines, Blondie has delivered a record that’s not only ambitious in its range of styles, but also unexpectedly and vibrantly compelling without sacrificing any of the group’s urbane, modish humor. As if to distinguish Blondie from the pop revival they helped catalyze, Eat to the Beat subjugates melody to momentum: in their construction and in Mike Chapman’s dense, crystalline production, most of the tracks are organized around Clem Burke’s superb drumming

Just as Blondie's second album, Plastic Letters, was a pale imitation of their self-titled debut, Eat to the Beat, their fourth album, was a secondhand version of their breakthrough third album, Parallel Lines: one step forward, half a step back. There was an attempt, on such songs as "The Hardest Part" and "Atomic," to recreate the rock/disco fusion of the group's one major . hit, "Heart of Glass," without similar success, and, elsewhere, the band just tried to cover too many stylistic bases
