Ready, one
You will do this four times with the left (With the clap, clap, clap, clap)
Four with the right (Hands, hands, hands, hands)
Then eight times with both
Then repeat

Body movin', body movin'
A1 sound and the sound so soothing
Body movin', body movin'
We be getting down and you know we're crush groovin'
Well let me get some action from the back section
We need body rocking not perfection
Let your back bone flip but don't slip a disc
And let your spine unwind just take a risk
I wanna do the freak until the break of dawn
Now tell me party people is that so wrong
The ship is docking, inter-lockin'
And up-rockin' electro-shocking
We're getting down computer action
Do the robotic satisfaction
All of y'all get off the wall
Have a ball and get involved with
Body movin', body movin' (Stand erect) with the A-1 sound (Arms down), and the sound so soothing
Body movin', body movin' (Swing left arm big, same with the right)
We be getting down and you know we're crush groovin'
Flame on, I'm gone
I'm so sweet like a nice bon, bon
Came out rapping when I was born
Mom said rock it 'til the break of dawn
Puttin' bodies in motion 'cause I got the notion
Like Roy Cormier with the coconut lotion
The sound of the music makin' you insane
You can't explain to people this type of mind frame
Like a bottle of Chateau Neuf Du Pap
I'm fine like wine when I start to rap
We need body rockin' not perfection
Let me get some action from the back section
Body movin', body movin'
A1 sound and the sound so soothing
Body movin', body movin'
We be getting down and you know we're crush groovin'

Hopping
Left arm ready and one,
And cut left, (Mike, Mike, Mike) stand erect
Mike D with the master plan
I said, ooh my, my and thank you ma'am
And when I grab the mic you scream Ooh god damn
The crиme de la crиme is who I am
MCA where have you been
Packed like sardines in the tin
So kick off your shoes and put on your swim fins
'Cause when it comes to quarries I'm known to swim
Ad rock light up the place
And if you pull my card you pull the ace
And if you ask me turn up the bass
And if you play defender I could be your hyper space
Body movin', body movin'
A1 sound, sound so soothing
Body movin', body movin'
We be getting down and you know we're crush groovin'
You will do eight hops on the left, eight on the right
Four left four right, two left, two right, then one each
Left right, left right. Start and land on the balls of the feet (C'mon)
Left foot, ready it's one two three four five"
