Where The Beat Meets The Street

Lyrics: Nicky Chin, Steve Glen
Music: Nicky Chin, Steve Glen

Played by Bob Weir with Bobby And The Midnites.

Swinging hips are out of sight (note 1)
Come on honey, don't you think we might get acquainted (note 2)
And I really think if we could try hard enough (note 3)
We might even get related

I'm looking for a new affair
One that's quite beyond compare
Come on take the best of me
I'll give you the rest of me

Chorus
Where the beat meets the street
That's where you'll find me
Where the beat meets the street
Don't deny me
Where the beat meets the street
Come on and try me
Baby don't run away

Jungle love is not so new
Come on honey, tell me that you can make it
Don't play funny games with me Show me what you've got and I can take it

Honey if you treat me right
Maybe you could stay the night
I can feel your body heat
You don't have to be discreet

[chorus]
Baby don't run away

Honey if you treat me right
Maybe you could stay the night
I can feel your body heat
You don't have to be discreet

[chorus]
Baby don't run away

[chorus]
[chorus]
[chorus]

Background
I don't know too much about the origins of the song. As well as being recorded by Bob Weir, it was also released as a single in 1984 by Bianca (EMI 5459). Ed Brown tells me that a version (not Bob Weir's) was used in a GM commercial some years later.
