I'ma shut ur party down, gon' rock, gon' roll
Gon' here U go, what we gon', what we gon'?

Move
Everybody get ready 2 move (Go go go...)
Oh yeah, oh yeah
Everybody, everybody
Mmhmm, ow
Come on
Listen

We know what y'all b thinkin', nude is the brand new yawn
Everybody's just drinkin', inhibitions just gone
U don't need 2 b rude, U don't need 2 b wild
Whatever U do, don't compromise and done with style

The gold standard, crazy amazing, upper echelon groove
The gold standard, crazy amazing, turn it up, let ur body move

U
I'm talkin', talkin' 2 U
Gotta, gotta let ur body move

We know what y'all b feelin', there use 2 b a time
Music was like a spiritual healing, the body, the soul and mind
(Some medicine)
U don't need 2 b rude, U don't need 2 b wild
If what U play take ur troubles away and make somebody smile

The gold standard, crazy amazing, upper echelon groove
The gold standard, crazy amazing, turn it up, let ur body move

U
Baby, I'm talkin', I'm talkin' 2 U
Oh yeah
Oh

I'ma shut ur party down, make U rock 'n' roll
Then we see U all U bobbin' as it trembles ur soul
24 carrot hashtag, put ur phone n ur bag
Ain't nobody got 2 tell U put ur hands n the air, say "Ow"
When the beat's 2 much, U need 2 drop that cup
1 left and right, hands up, everybody just...
Everybody just...
Swing ur hip 2 the left and right
If U know about the "Bus Stop," there's a tight hook
Now everybody just shake
Shake
New power slide
New power slide
Hahaha

Here come the chorus y'all
The gold standard, crazy amazing, upper echelon groove
The gold standard, crazy amazing, turn it up, let ur body move

Turn it up, let me see that body move (Let me see ur body move)
Turn it up, let me see that body move (Let me see ur body move)
Turn it up, let me see that body move (Body, body move)
Turn it up, let me see that body move

Turn it up, let me see that body move
Turn it up, let me see that body move (Let me)
Turn it up, let me see that body move (Let me see ur body, babe)
Turn it up, let me see that body move
Body move (So crazy)
Gon' see that, that body move (Crazy amazing)
That body move (Oh yeah, oh) (The gold standard)
Gon' see that, that body move (Oh baby)

Hey baby
Oh yeah? Really?
No, that's cool
Bring it here
All the way here, come on
Let me get n there
Good God, mmm
Keep it there
This is exciting, it's different
