  • When I move my body just like this
    I don't know why but I feel like freedom (yeah)
    I hear a song that takes me back (I know)
    And I let go with so much freedom (hey)
    Free to live (how I wanna live)
    I'ma get (where I'm gonna get)
    'Cause it's my freedom

    I love how you talk
    You're speaking my language
    The way that you walk
    You can't contain it
    Is it the shoes?
    Jumped up, kangaroo
    We're overdue for a little more prancing

    Now it's your time (it's your right)
    You can shine (it's alright)
    If you do, then I'ma do too

    When I move my body just like this
    I don't know why but I feel like freedom (yeah)
    I hear a song that takes me back
    And I let go with so much freedom (oowee)
    Free to live (how I wanna live)
    I'ma get (where I'm gonna get)
    'Cause it's my freedom

    The reason we get down, is to get back up
    If someone's around, go on let them look
    You can't stand still
    This ain't no drill
    More than cheap thrills
    (Feels like money, money, money, money, money, money)

    Now it's your time (it's your right)
    You can shine (it's alright)
    If you do, then I'ma do too

    'Cause when I look up to the stars (stars)
    I know exactly who we are (oh)
    'Cause then I see you shine
    You're shinin', you're shinin', oh

    Free to be (everybody come on) (freedom)
    (Everybody come 'round)
    (Everybody come on) come on now
    (Everybody hit the floor)

    I'm stuck to the dancefloor
    With the, with the whole tape
    With the, with the, with the whole tape (let me see you wobble)
    I'm stuck to the dancefloor
    With the, with the whole tape
    With the, with the, with the whole tape (let me see you shake)
    You get what you ask for, givin' you the whole shake
    I'ma give you the whole shake (let me see you wobble)
    I'm stuck to the dancefloor
    With the, with the whole tape
    With the, with the, with the whole tape (can you make it break?)

    I say yeah (yeah)
    Oh yeah (oh yeah)
    (Let me see you wobble)
    'Cause, you do, I'ma do too

    When I move my body just like this
    I don't know why but I feel like freedom (freedom)
    I hear a song that takes me back
    And I let go with so much freedom
    Free to live (how I wanna live)
    I'ma get (where I'm gonna get)
