  • Play that song
    The one that makes me go all night long
    The one that makes me think of you
    That's all you gotta do

    Hey, mister DJ when you gonna spin it
    My baby's favorite record she been waiting for a minute
    She invited all her friends and I'm buying all the rounds
    And they're all dolled up
    DJ please don't let me down

    When you gonna play that song, now
    When you gonna earn that pay
    When you gonna play that song and make my day

    She said, play that song
    The one that makes me go all night long
    The one that makes me think of you
    That's all you gotta do
    Hey, play that song (play that song)
    The one the makes me stay out till dawn (out till dawn)
    The one that makes me go, ooh
    That's all you gotta do (hey, hey, hey, hey)

    Hey, Mr. Guitar
    When you gonna strum it
    My girl just heard this song and you should play it 'cause she loves it
    Can you get me off the hook, get them fingers picking now
    I'll throw some money in your cup
    Mister, please don't let me down

    When you gonna play that song, now
    Why you gotta hesitate
    When you gonna play that song and make my day

    She said, play that song (play that song)
    The one that makes me go all night long (all night long)
    The one that makes me think of you
    That's all you gotta do
    Hey, play that song (play that song)
    The one the makes me stay out till dawn (out till dawn)
    The one that makes me go, ooh

    Oh, wait till you see my baby move
    Move, move, wait till you see my baby move
    Move, move, oh, come on now
