Ow!

Everybody
Get on the floor
What the hell'd U come here 4?
Girl, it ain't no use
U might as well get loose
Work ur body like a whore
Mm, say everybody
Get on the beat
We're gonna show U mothers how 2 scream
Ooh, people everywhere
Loosen up ur hair
Take a deeper breath
& sing along with me, yes
R U ready?

Everybody, everybody
Ooh, alright
Dance, music, sex, romance
Oh, everybody say...
Ooh, alright
Dance, music, sex, romance

Everybody
Loosen up
Shake it like U just don't care
Never mind ur friends
Girl, it ain't no sin
2 strip right down 2 ur underwear
say everybody, mm
Screw the masses
We only want 2 have some fun
say do whatever we want
Wear lingerie 2 a restaurant
Policeman got no gun
U don't have 2 run

Everybody
Ooh, alright
Dance, music, sex, romance
Everybody say...
Ooh, alright
Dance, music, sex, romance
Oh
Everybody clap ur hands now

All the white people
Clap ur hands on the 4 now

Listen 2 me

Cuz don't wanna blow it
