    Everybody get up and do your thing
    Everybody come on, dance and sing
    Everybody get up and do your thing

    Let the music take control
    Find a groove and let yourself go
    When the room begins to sway
    You know what I'm trying to say

    Get up and start to dance
    Let the DJ shake you
    Let the music take you

    Everybody come on, dance and sing
    Everybody get up and do your thing
    Everybody come on, dance and sing
    Everybody get up and do your thing

    Let your body take a ride
    Feel the beat and step inside
    Music makes the world go 'round
    You can turn you troubles upside down

    Gonna have to change your mind
    Gonna leave your troubles behind
    Your body gets the notion
    When your feet can make the motion

    Everybody come on, dance and sing
    Everybody get up and do your thing
    Everybody come on, dance and sing
    Everybody get up and do your thing

    Dance and sing, get up and do your thing

  • Henry from Sanford, Florida, UsaI was in college when this song was being played in the dance clubs in Hartford, CT. Thought it was just as good, if not better than "Holiday" and "Lucky Star."
  • Leo from Westminster 1, MdEverybody-a brilliant beginning to a brilliant life. A great single and call-to-arms, it presents Madonna as some who brings joy to our lives. 30 years later, that fact is still True. Lady Madonna, you are brilliant!
  • Kevin from Mobile, AlThe 80's were such a cool time. I was just a little kid back then. I used to be jealous of my older brothers and my sister, because they were teens and could go out and participate, while I could only watch.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThe song is too simple but I think Madonna feels close to this song.
  • Daniel from Rio De Janeiro, BrazilMadonna's 1st single
    Apparently, she's not featured on the cover because the label wanted people to think she was a black singer.
