  • It's the best disco in town, number one in disco sound
    It's the place where hip people meet, hey, hey
    It's the best disco in town, bump and boogie all around
    It's no place to sit in your seat, hey, hey

    DJ's are the best there, you'll never get a rest there
    You may meet the right girl or guy
    When they play the right groove your body makes the next move
    Get up on the floor and get down to see that the music can take you high

    It's the best disco in town, funky music pound for pound
    Join the crowd, come on dance and sing, hey, hey
    It's the best disco in town, people come from miles around
    It's the place to do your own thing, hey, hey

    People dress the best there, the music is the best there
    They're the very best sounds, so high class
    If you make a request the DJ will do his best
    To lay down your favorite song so you or baby hold on the past

    Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

    The hit sound of Motown (Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

    I'll be there
    ‘Cause we love music
    I love music
    Any kind of music
    Bad love was good love

    The only way we party is when you got

    It's the best disco in town, number one in disco sound
