  • Dance, dance, dance, dance
    Keep on dancin´
    Dance, dance, dance, dance

    Just dancin´ to the beat, feel the heat
    I´m movin´ my feet
    Headed towards the floor, gonna get down
    A-get down some more

    Rumba and Tango
    Latin Hustle, too
    Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah
    I want to boogie wit´choo

    Bop bop bop bop bow
    Bop bop bop bop bow
    Bop bop bop bop bow
    Bop bop bop bop bow

    Oh, what a treat, feels so sweet
    (Ah) That body heat
    When I´m dancin´ with my baby drives me crazy
    Makes me hazy

    Rumba and Tango
    Latin Hustle, too
    Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah
    I want to boogie wit´choo

    Bop bop bop bop bow
    Bop bop bop bop bow

  • Zappy from Geelong, AustraliaI heard Chic described as a disco version of Steely dan around 1979
  • Kristin from Bessemer, AlThis song was mainly a disco-fied tribute to the dance marathons back in the 1930s and 1940s, hence the "yowsah, yowsah, yowsah" in the background-
