William Beckett - Girl, You Shoulda Been A Drummer Lyrics




She's a dangerous kind
And I like it that way
On the night we met, I sent an S.O.S.
Turned me upside down with the look on her face

She's a perfect mess
A real one of a kind
When the curtains closed, we were gettin' close
And the clothes in the corner layed there all night

Oh, she never skipped a single beat
Left me there while I was still asleep

Girl, you shoulda been a drummer
You break me down like no other
You beat my heart black and bruised
No one does it like you do
No doubt, you've got perfect rhythm
Crash and burn and then it ended
You played me so hard so fast
Just like heavy metal thunder
Girl, you shoulda been a drummer

When the morning came along
She didn't say goodbye but I didn't mind
Because a scratch is what you're gonna get
When you open the door and let a lion inside

Oh, she didn't skip a single beat
Left me there while I was still asleep

Girl, you shoulda been a drummer
You break me down like no other
You beat my heart black and bruised
No one does it like you do
No doubt, you've got perfect rhythm
Crash and burn and then it ended
You played me so hard so fast
Just like heavy metal thunder
Girl, you shoulda been a drummer

Oh, you never skip a single beat

Oh, she never skipped a single beat
Left me there while I was still asleep

Girl, you shoulda been a drummer
You break me down like no other
You beat my heart black and bruised
No one does it like you do
No doubt, you've got perfect rhythm
Crash and burn and then it ended
You played me so hard so fast
Just like heavy metal thunder
Girl, you shoulda been a drummer
Girl, you shoulda been a drummer

  12. missysom

    Is there lyrics anywhere for this?

  13. Eliana C

    Ps: I was a TAI fan i still am , but now i support William's solo project as well, i think is fair because he's doing great music.

  14. Eliana C

    TAI fans get over it! It's over, Stop crying about the past. If you don't like William's music, well don't listen, simple as that.
    DON'T WORRY WILLIAM, YOU'LL HAVE LOTS OF NEW FANS! Cheers from Argentina

  15. Erin Blair

    I saw him August 10th(last night) in Little Rock, AR...such a sweet guy! He let me kiss him on the cheek and called me a sweetie. He's humble and wonderful and honestly everything you would expect from him. If you get the chance to meet him, don't be shy! Carpe Diem!

  16. Omar Mora

    Does anyone know how much the tickets cost?

  17. jennaii

    You were obviously never a fan if you can't accept the fact that he has moved on from The Academy Is... He is happy now and according to an interview I read, he was the one who suggested TAI's break up. He felt that they weren't the same as before and didn't want to make a forced record. So perhaps you were the one who never had taste. Don't start saying shit about his music and how much it sucks because you are probably still resentful of the fact that TAI split up.

  18. Arli Quinn

    Would you hate your father if he went from being a doctor to a lawyer? Wouldn't that be illogical? Hm? Well, then. Isn't it stupid to suddenly not support Bilvy because he's doing something different. No, missy, I think YOU need to re-evaluate if YOU'RE really a fan.

  19. johnnysloth

    whats the Panic! one?

  20. hindigo15

    To each their own. It is possible to enjoy more than one type of music.

  21. Emmanuele r

    and FOB

  22. Ellie7142

    Only William Beckett can make a song about sex so goddamn adorable <3

  23. me168716

    aw no this is great and i'm like dancing and idk it makes me all happy so yeah this is really nice and if it makes him happy too than that's even better dude idk

  24. Noor Hashem

    Okay I'm one who supports all artist to do what they want. I loved TAI and I love Will's new stuff. I respect him for doing what he's happy with. Okay so he's not doing more serious songs, stuff just for fun. That's great that he's doing it. This song's great, catchy, his voice is amazing, and he's happy and having fun. I think that's all that really matters. So fuck off haters.

  25. Fredde

    IA I really don't like this. Oh well.

  26. Simone W.

    please shut your fucking mouth up :D

  27. cavalierlover16

    This is what William likes. I love The Academy Is.. and I love William Beckett. I support whatever makes him happy.

  28. Zoe Blyton

    This isn't TAI. This is William Beckett. How can you expect the two to be the same? Obviously you're ignorant because it's going to be different once the band breaks up. Look at Fall Out Boy. The same thing happened. If you were a real TAI fan, you'd let him do what he wants. And hey, you don't have to listen to this, you can still listen to TAI if you want to. I usuallydon't listen to this music, but I like TAI, and I like this too. So you should just keep your opinion to yourself I think. :)

  29. amarenka9

    to much pop, to less rock... but his voice is always +10 to awesomeness :D

  30. Disimagination

    Stfu, this sucks. WTF. Are you the same people who liked The Academy Is!? Did you all lose taste?! WTF?! Where're the fans?!

  31. mychenle

    butts to you. the song is great. it's just wonderful. shame you don't like it bc i do a lot :D

  32. Hedgeyy

    He's a great singer, but the song, I don't know...

  33. Alessandra Millan

    My favorite song ¡seriously! of my love william<3
