  • Hey, what am I doing standing here on the corner of
    West 8th Street and 6th Avenue and

    Ah, skip it.

    Nothing. Keith! Watcha, watcha doing? (whistle)
    Oh, I think the time has come to get out, get out

    Get up, get out, get into something new
    Get up, get out, into something new

    Ooh! And it's got me moving (Got me moving honey!)
    Ooh! And it's got me moving
    Ooh! And it's got me moving
    Ooh! And it's got me moving

    My my my, my my my, my my my, my my my, my

    Poor man eyes a rich man
    Denigrates his property
    A rich man eyes a poor man
    And envies his simplicity.

    Get up, get up, into something new
    Get up, get out, down into something new

    Ooh! and it's got me moving
    Ooh! and it's got me moving
    Ooh! and it's got me moving
    Ooh! and it's got me moving
    Ooh! and it's got me moving

    Yeah, get up, get up, get out
    Into something new
    Yeah, all, woncha all, woncha all, woncha all
    Don't stand accused Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Jon from Roeland Park, KsFranz Ferdinand appear to have listened to this one at some point. Nice to hear the licks again.
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrThe odd voicings are done by Max romeo.
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrThis tune was played live in 2002 on the 40 Licks tour. It featured a great Hornarrangment and the lyrics were a combination of "Dance Pt. 1" and "If I Was A Dancer".
