  • All the people in the crowd
    Grab a partner, take it down
    It's just me against the music, its just me and me, yeah come on

    Hey Britney, are you ready, uh-huh, are you?

    When no one cares
    It's whipping my hair
    It's pulling my waist
    To hell with stares
    The sweat is dripping all over my face
    And no one's there
    I'm the only one dancing up in this place
    Tonight I'm here
    To the beat of the drum, gotta give it that bass

    I want to get stupid
    Trying to take my music
    It's like a competition
    Me against the beat
    I want to get in the zone
    I want to get in the zone

    If you really want to party
    Send my love and get ya
    Really to hit, you could die
    In a minute, I'ma take-a ya on, I'ma take-a ya on
    (Hey hey hey)

    All my people on the floor let me see you dance
    All my people up for more let me see you dance
    All my people, 'round and 'round let me see you dance
    All my people in the crowd, let me see you dance
    (Wont you let me got to show just take on the zone)
    Let's take on the zone, lets take on the zone
    (If you really want to battle)
    (It's you and me baby and the music turns our body all night long)
    All night long

    (We're almost there)
    I'm feeling it bad and I can't explain
    My soul is there
    My hips all moving at a rapid pace
    Can you feel it burn
    From the tip of my toes, running through my veins
    And now's your turn
    Let me see what ya got, don't hesitate

    I want to get stupid
    Trying to take my music
    It's like a competition
    Me against the beat
    I want to get in the zone
    I want to get in the zone

    If you really want to party
    Settle up and get your rhythm
    Try to hit, you could die
    In a minute, I'ma take-a ya on, I'ma take-a ya on
    Hey, hey, hey (here we go)

    All my people on the floor let me see you dance
    All my people up for more let me see you dance
    All my people, 'round and 'round let me see you dance
    All my people in the crowd, let me see you dance
    I wanna see you

    Get on the floor
    Baby, lose control
    Just work your body
    And let it go
    If you want to party
    Just grab somebody
    And baby we can dance all night

    Hey Britney, you say you wanna lose control
    Come over here I got something to show you
    Sexy lady, I'd rather see you bare your soul
    If you think you're so hot
    Better show me what you got

    All my people in the crowd
    Let me see you dance
    Come on Britney lose control
    Watch me take it down

    Get on the floor
    Baby, lose control
    Just work your body
    And let it go
    If you want to party
    Just grab somebody
    Hey baby we can dance all night

    All my people on the floor let me see you dance
    All my people up for more let me see you dance
    All my people, 'round and 'round let me see you dance
    All my people in the crowd, let me see you dance
    I wanna see you

    All my people in the crowd,
    Let me see you dance
    Come on Britney take it down
    Make the music dance
    All my people 'round and 'round
    Party all night long
    Come on Britney lose control
    Watch you take it down Writer/s: Britney Spears, Christopher Stewart, Dorian Hardnett, Gary O'Brian, Madonna Ciccone, Terius Nash, Thabiso Nkhereanye

  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThanks to Madonna this song rocks! The video is hot too.
  • Bob from Hallanedale, FlThis song is a total oxymoron-it refers to "me" that being Britney and "music" in the same title.
  • Phil from Champaign, IlI've heard a song on the radio whose melody is the same as the part of "Me against the Music" where Madonna sings a call and answer "All the people in the crowd/Let me see you dance, C'mon Britney take it down/ make the music dance, All my people round and round/ party all night long, C'mon Britney lose control/ watch you take it down." The song that I heard was on an alternative rock station, and had a real New Wave/Retro sound. What song is this?
