  • Steppin' out, the weekend's open wide
    Fill it up, let's blast the jams and ride
    While we're cruisin' around in the street
    Listen up for the party in feet
    Slap me five, that's the place we've arrived
    It's alive, everybody take it to the top

    We're gonna stomp
    All night
    In the neighbourhood
    Don't it feel alright?
    Gonna stomp
    All night
    Wanna party 'til the mornin' light

    Runnin' runnin' runnin' (oh yeah)
    Set is hot, there's people wall to wall
    Old ones, young things, short ones standin' tall
    So grab the girl with the smile on her face
    And hit the floor and stay right on the case
    The heat is on and the funk just won't leave us alone
    Everybody take it to the top

    We're gonna stomp
    All night
    In the neighbourhood
    Don't it feel alright?
    Gonna stomp
    All night
    Wanna party 'til the mornin' light

    Gonna stomp
    All night
    In the neighbourhood
    Don't it feel alright?
    Gonna stomp
    All night
    Wanna party 'til the mornin' light
