  • We can do anything that we want, we can, we can,

    we can, we can do anything that we want



    Why you gotta play that song so loud?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why you always run around in crowds?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always have to dance all night?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always say what's on your mind?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!



    Don't try to tell me what I already know

    Don't criticise me 'cause I'm running the show

    Some revolution is going to happen today

    I'm gonna chase the dark clouds away

    Come on and help me sing it



    We can do what we want to do

    We can do anything

    Free to be who we want to be

    Just tell yourself you can do it!



    Why you gotta play that song so loud?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why you always run around in crowds?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always have to dance all night?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always say what's on your mind?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!



    I'll throw a party for the world and my friends

    We'll take life easy, the music never ends

    Perfect solution to the stress and the strain

    I know the sun will follow the rain

    Come on and help me sing it



    We can do what we want to do

    We can do anything

    Free to be who we want to be

    Just tell yourself you can do it!



    Why you gotta play that song so loud?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why you always run around in crowds?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always have to dance all night?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always say what's on your mind?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!



    We can do anything that we want, we can, we can,

    we can, we can do anything that we want



    So shake it, move it, use the groove

    Go with the flow and take off with the show

    Let me tell you it's sweet and it's an up-beat

    Me and the crew, there's nothing we can't do



    If you want to catch this vibe then get with us

    Come on and help me sing it!



    We can do what we want to do

    We can do anything

    Free to be who we want to be

    Just tell yourself you can do it!



    Why you gotta play that song so loud?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why you always run around in crowds?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always have to dance all night?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!

    Why d'you always say what's on your mind?

    Because we want to! Because we want to!
