Lyrics / Paroles

All you gotta do
Is dance, dance, dance
All you gotta do
Is clap your hands, hands, hands
You'll be the life of the party
Yes you will now
Life of the party
Yes you can

Hey Miss. Corner Sitter never left your seat
'Til some dancing heart getter charm you to your feet, yeah
You got the movement soon you'll be doing it
So get with it, baby get with it

You'll be the life of the party (You thrill me when you dance, whoa)
You can be, you can be
Life of the party
You can be, you can be
(Dance, you can dance) yes you can

You're a sexy mama such a dancin' dream
You're no longer sittin' your train's puffin' steam
The guys are lined up they're hoping to wind up with you now
Can't you see it

You'll be the life of the party (I love the way you dance, whoa yeah)
You can be, you can be
Life of the party
You can be, you can be

There'll be dancin', prancin'
With a little romancin', hah

All you gotta do is
Dance, dance, dance
All you gotta do
Is clap your hands, hands, hands
You can boogie, you can boogie, you can boogie, you can boogie
You can move, move, move
You can boogie, you can boogie, you can boogie, you can boogie
You can move, move, move
Let's get down, down, down, down, down, down
Let's get down, down, down, down, down, down
(Ad-lib and fade)
