Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you, sing it now!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And shake it, say it now!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!
Get up off!
Ha!
Good God!
So good!

Ha!
Everybody ready?!

Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And shake it, sing it now!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!
Get up offa that thing, (Ha!)
And twist 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you, sing it now!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!

Huh!

[I'm not sure about those last two lines]
Uh!

Can you hit it one time, from the top?!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance to try, you better! [?]
Get up offa that thing,
And... Help me!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you feel better!
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!

Hey!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you feel better!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you, help me out!
Get up offa that thing,
And dance 'till you feel better!
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better!
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release, say it now!
Get up offa that thing,
And shake 'till you feel better,
Get up offa that thing,
And try to release that pressure!
Get up and... Call it!
I feel good!
[Fade out]
