  • Rock steady, baby
    That's what I feel now
    Let's call the song exactly what it is
    Step and move your hips with a feeling from side to side
    Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
    And 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 low down feeling (what it is)
    In my hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is, is I might be doin' (what it is)
    This funky dance all night, ohh
    (Wave your hands up in the air)
    (Got a feeling and ain't got a care) ohh
    (What fun to take this ride, rock steady will only slide)

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

    Step 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 low down feeling (what it is)
    In my hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is, is I might be doin' (what it is)
    This funky dance all night, ohh
    (Wave your hands up in the air)
    (Got a feeling and ain't got a care) ohh
    (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 low down feeling (what it is)
    In my hips from left to right (what it is)
    What it is, is I might be doin' (what it is)
    This funky dance all night, ohh
    (Wave your hands up in the air) ohh
    (Got a feeling and ain't got a care) ohh
    (What fun to take this ride) ohh
    (Rock steady will only slide)

    Rock steady, steady, baby, uh
    Rock steady, baby

    Baby (what it is)
