    Girls wall to wall.
    There's my man hangin' out at the back.
    So I cruise, slide through the dance floor.
    I never seen a club so "hype" before.
    Get on the mic and get raw,
    back to back, front to front,
    door to door.
    Ev'rybody dance to the new sound:
    rock 'n' roll, soul to soul.

    and the top to the bottom. Hmmm.

    Rock 'n' roll will grow and flow and yo,
    it will develop into a new form,
    break the norm, get warm
    and then swarm come back again,
    tear it up and transform from
    B.B. king to Bo Diddley.
    Ed Sullivan was on the T.V. screen
    to be seen with the Beatles
    and The Jackson Five.
    The Who, The Doors, The Rolling Stones
    and even I've dibbled a bit to get wit'.
    Helpin' to prove that it's legit, yet
    parents dissed it back to the days
    the same way the dissed rap.

    On the dance floor is where we all get raw

    The C+C Music Factory is mastery
    and full fo jams that have to be pumped
    'til your ears get sore.
    Live from Brooklyn out to the California seashore,
    we came to rock and roll,
    to get on down to somethin' funky with soul.
    Rob and Dave seduced it and I juiced it,
    spruced it, mass produced it, and you proofed it.
    Party people, if your havin' a good time
    and singin' along to my rhyme,
    this goes out to the young and to the old,

    let's rock and roll.
    Here we go. Here we go.
    Here we go. Here we go.
