The Beat Goes On – new song lyrics

The Beat Goes On
by Madonna and Pharrell

Here comes the sun
(here comes the sun)
I’m tired of coming undone
(oh, coming undone)
There’s been so much darkness
Too much of the time
I think its a sign
(must be a sign)

Here comes the rain
(Here comes the rain)
Wash away all the pain
(wash away the pain)
Coming together, going apart
I want you to stay
(Hope you wanna stay)

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes

Here comes my hand…
(here comes your hand)
Take it while you can…
(take it while you can)
Ill throw you some rope
if it will give you hope
want you to understand….
(understand)

Here comes your smile
(here comes your smile)
Hope it stays for awhile
(stays for awhile)
You know its contagious
It might sound outrageous
But I feel so alive…
(feel so alive)

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes

I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting [take it up]
I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting

Always the bride’s maid, never the bride
Two steps behind, you’ve got too much pride
Always supporting, never the star
Get it together, cause the beat goes on

On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it down]
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it up]
On and on the beat goes
On and on the beat goes [take it down]
On and on the beat goes

INSTRUMENTATION

I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you
You keep me Waiting [take it up]
I can’t keep waiting for you
I can’t keep waiting [take it down]
Anticipating with you

Cause see the beat goes on”

Liz Rosenberg comments on Madonna’s contract with WMG

Madonna is considering leaving her current label Warner Music Group (WMG) after her next two albums are released, her publicist told FOXNews.com.

Among the alternatives the pop music icon is considering is a deal with Los Angeles-based Live Nation, Britain’s leading promotions company and venue owner, said Liz Rosenberg, who represents Madonna and also works at WMG.

Music industry insiders have estimated such a move could be worth $100 million to the Material Girl.

But before any new contracts with Live Nation, WMG or any other company can be arranged, Rosenberg said, Madonna will release her forthcoming and as-yet untitled album set to come out later this year or early next and a greatest hits album with WMG, the label she has been with throughout her career.

“Once that’s done, Madonna is a free agent,” Rosenberg said. “Her management is considering a move to another company.”

The news comes only weeks after WMG stock dropped to an all-time low, dipping below $10 to $9.79 a share, as reported by FOXNews.com’s 411 on Aug. 7.

Madge gives her pals some gip

I never thought that Madonna would spend her 49th birthday with a bunch of gipsies.

But the Queen Of Pop who has millionaires BRAD PITT, GWYNETH PALTROW and STELLA McCARTNEY as friends slummed it on her big day yesterday with a traveller-themed bash for 20 close pals.

And Madge and husband GUY RITCHIE laid on fab entertainment at their country pile in Wiltshire.

The singer splashed out on The Devil’s Horsemen to lay on an equestrian show. The troop travel the UK dressed in medieval-themed costumes to perform jousting shows.

I imagine her manicured lawn will be in in an awful state today.

Madge must have taken inspiration from new best pal EUGENE HUTZ, from gipsy punk band GOGOL BORDELLO.

The pair performed a Romany-inspired routine to her hit La Isla Bonita at the Live Earth gig last month. He played at her party too.

I hear Eugene teamed up with Russian gipsy act THE KOLPAKOV TRIO to get guests dancing until dawn.

It’s amazing to think she’ll be 50 next year.

As I told you earlier this week, Madonna is planning to put on a special gig at New York’s Central Park to celebrate.

You can send my invitation to Bizarre HQ if you like, Madge?

Gossip : Madge jab shocks air passengers

Madonna shocked passengers on a recent transatlantic flight after witnesses claim she whipped out a needle and started injecting herself with vitamins.

Her startling energy boost came after sources say the queen of pop endured the seven hour journey without eating any food and drinking only bottled water.

A passenger on the flight said: ‘Just before landing she brought out the phials of vitamins and injected herself.’

‘Seven hours is a long time to go without eating. She was also very quiet and only spoke to the air staff to ask for water.’ The claims come on the eve of the super-fit mum’s 49th birthday, which she will celebrate later this week.

Recently she has surprised fans in a string of paparazzi shots that show her arms looking extra muscular and veiny.

A spokeswoman for the songstress said she ‘would not comment’ on whether the star uses vitamin jabs.

Other celebrities who are rumoured to use the energy boosting shots include rehabbers Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears.

Anna Denny, nutrition scientist at the British Nutrition Foundation said: ‘They can be useful for the elderly and the very young, but generally they’re unnecessary.

‘We wouldn’t recommend taking them without consulting a GP first.’
