Let all the heat pour down
I'm good as long as he's around
He let's me wear the crown
I do my best to make him proud

Now all my super ladies
I got my baby
If you got your baby, baby

[Chorus:]
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi
Put your hands up in the air
Dance for your man if you care
Put your hands up in the air air air
Woahh ohh ohh
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi

My rock is shining bright
Even if he ain't by my side
He'll make sure that I glow
I'll make sure everybody knows

Now all my super ladies
I got my baby
If you got your baby, baby

[Chorus:]
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi
Put your hands up in the air
Dance for your man if you care
Put your hands up in the air air air
Woahh ohh ohh
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi
Put your hands up in the air
Dance for your man if you care
Put your hands up in the air air air
Woahh ohh ohh

Step up, step up
Let your hair down
Pop, drop and lock it all down
If he wants to tear up the ground
Dance for your papi

Step up, step up
Let your hair down
Pop, drop and lock it all down
If he wants to tear up the ground
Dance for your papi

Step up, step up
Let your hair down
Pop, drop and lock it all down
If he wants to tear up the ground
Dance for your papi

Now all my super ladies
I got my baby
If you got your baby, baby

[Chorus:]
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi
Put your hands up in the air
Dance for your man if you care
Put your hands up in the air air air
Woahh ohh ohh
Move your body, move your body,
Dance for your papi
Rock your body, rock your body,
Dance for your papi
Put your hands up in the air
Dance for your man if you care
Put your hands up in the air air air
Woahh ohh ohh

    Papi is expressly daddy, not father, and used more typically by a woman speaking to or about her man. It is used by children as well to call their father daddy, but in the song context she is speaking about her man.

    Te amo solo a ti, papi. I love only you, daddy. This i would tell my man. :)

    A spanish word term that literally translates as 'father' into english. It is often used along with papa to refer to ones father.

    I think it means that her dad was the one who took care of her, made her a star, helped her fulfill her dream. So i'm guessing the actual man she loved first was her dad. Even if her boyfriend broke up with her, if her dad is there she is alright. She dedicates this song to the one who helped her through the years, her best friend forever and a family member, her dad. So, let's just appreciate what our fathers have done for us. Even though i don't know who my father is, i am sure he is a great man. That is why there is a day dedicated to the fathers all over the world. They are the ones who worked all day and night just so we could eat. Even mothers can be treated like dads. Because my mother is the one i treat as my mom and dad. So, if you're the nicest kid in the block, just be thankful you have a loving dad and mom. -regina 10 years old
