  • Please don't stop the music, music, music
    Please don't stop the music, music, music
    Please don't stop the music, music, music
    Please don't stop the music, music, music

    It's getting late, I'm making my way over to my favorite place
    I gotta get my body moving, shake the stress away
    I wasn't looking for nobody when you looked my way
    Possible candidate, yeah

    Who knew, that you'd be up in here looking like you do
    You're makin' staying over here impossible
    Baby, I'm a say your aura is incredible
    If you don't have to go, don't

    Do you know what you started? I just came here to party
    But now we're rockin' on the dance floor, actin' naughty
    Your hands around my waist just let the music play
    We're hand in hand, chest to chest, and now we're face to face

    [Chorus]
    I wanna take you away
    Let's escape into the music
    DJ, let it play
    I just can't refuse it
    Like the way you do this
    Keep on rockin' to it
    Please don't stop the, please don't stop the music
    I wanna take you away
    Let's escape into the music
    DJ, let it play
    I just can't refuse it
    Like the way you do this
    Keep on rockin' to it
    Please don't stop the, please don't stop the, please don't stop the music

    Baby, are you ready 'cause it's gettin' cold
    Don't you feel the passion ready to explode?
    What goes on between us no one has to know
    This is a private show

    Do you know what you started? I just came here to party
    But now we're rockin' on the dance floor, actin' naughty
    Your hands around my waist just let the music play
    We're hand in hand, chest to chest, and now we're face to face

    [Chorus]

    Please don't stop the music

    Please don't stop the music, music, music

    Please don't stop the music, music, music

    [Chorus]

    Please don't stop the music

    Please don't stop the music, music, music

    Please don't stop the music, music, music, music, music, music, music

  • Ce from Miami, FlThis song is awsome! it is a damn shame it is not played anymore
  • Gabriela Hinojosa from Tamaulipas, Mexicoi lOve the sOng!!!! and it's cool that you can also hear the "Woo Hoo" screaming of Michael Jackson in the background of the chorus when they also sing "Ma Ma Se, Ma Ma Sa, Ma Ma Coo Sa"
  • Jessie from Boston, Mawhen im down i just listen to this song on my ipod and it gets me up and moving to the irresistable beat
  • Mjn Seifer from Not Listed For Personal Reason, EnglandYou can see what I think is meant to be Michael Jackson, in the video. (You only see him from behind though.)
  • Sum Sum from New Delhi, -Love this song..love her black dress too. Is Rihanna having affair with JayZ?
  • Joe from Grove City, OhI really don't like Umbrella or Hate That I love You, and yet Rihanna's third album is far better than her second--much more versatile, containing quality songs from start to finish. This song, and Break Dishes and Shut Up and Drive, are the best three, but there's lots more there too.
  • Midnight from Los Angeles, CaShe is at a club dancing and turns out that DJ is playing Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'"
  • Karen from Atlantic Beach, FlThe song is all about me, baby!!!
  • Melody from Mesa, AzThis song is about a girl that is stressed from her everyday life and wants to go out to have fun and dance with a guy in order to "shake her stress away". She obviously doesn't want to leave the club and asks the DJ to not "stop the music". catchy!
  • Holly from Richmond, Moi loveeeee this song!!!!
