  • Rock steady, baby
    That's what I feel now
    Just call the song exactly what it is
    Just move your hips with a feeling from side to side
    Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
    While you're moving, rock steady
    Rock steady, baby
    Let's call this song exactly what it is (what it is, what it is, what it is)
    It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
    In the hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is I might be doin' (what it is)
    This funky dance all night
    (Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
    (Gotta a feeling, an ain't got a care)
    (What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)

    Rock steady, rock steady baby
    Rock steady, rock steady baby

    Jump and move your hips with a feeling from side to side
    Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
    While you're moving, rock steady
    Rock steady
    Let's call this song exactly what it is (what it is, what it is, what it is)
    It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
    In the hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is I might be doin' (what it is)
    This funky dance all night
    (Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
    (Gotta a feeling, an ain't got a care)
    (What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)

    Rock steady baby
    Rock steady, woo
    Rock steady

    Rock steady, rock steady (what it is)
    It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
    In the hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is is I might be doin'
    This funky dance all night
    (Let me hear ya gotta feeling in the air)
    (Gotta a feeling, an ain't got a care)
    (What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)

    Rock steady, steady baby, rock, rock steady, baby
