  • Rankin' come forward
    Full stop, say ranking full stop
    Full stop, say ranking full stop
    My name is ranking full stop

    So all you really got to do is just-a move you little feet
    And just-a rock-a to the beat, as I would say, yeah, alright
    And when you hear the signal you must stop, I said rock
    I said you rock it and you shock it, and you, ooh, say so, oh lord

    Now hold on down there, take it easy, yeah, alright
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    I said stop

    Ready, said are you ready to go
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to go
    Full stop, me, stop, full stop
    (Ranking full stop) now that's the name I would really, really say
    Full stop, ranking full stop
    Said

    You move your little feet, you rock-a to the beat
    You hear this song and you gotta come around
    I see you upon the street, you look so sweet

    I see you with your dancin' feet, yeah
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    I said stop

    Ready, said are you ready to go
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to go
    Full stop, me, stop, full stop
    (To ranking full stop) as I would tell ya 'bout this song, so c'mon
    Full stop, ranking full stop, say ranking full stop
    Brr-yeah

    Your dancing took it over you know
    I say you come from dover you know
    And I would really, really tell ya and show you all
    To do the ranking full stop

    I said you move to your left and then you move to you right
    Tell you 'bout this song and you got to unite
    You move to your left and then you move to your right
    And then you do it 'till midnight you know

    All singing are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    Said are you ready, said are you ready to stop
    I said stop
