Hey, baby 
Oh, yeah
Let me take you to Xanadu 
Where is that?
Behind the groove 
Well, alright
Hoo

Behind the groove
There's another side inside of you
Behind the groove
You can make your wildest dreams come true

So get on up 
Behind the groove
And shake your body 
Get behind the groove
Open up and take the music in 
Get behind the groove
You better get on up 
Behind the groove
Come to the party 
Get behind the groove
Life is waitin' for you to begin

Behind the groove
You can dance forever and a day
Behind the groove
There is romance just a glance away

Got to move, get behind the groove
Why don't you let your spirit play
Another me and another you
If we make it through to Xanadu, ooh

Shake your body, shake your body, ooh
Shake your body, shake 
Come on, I'll take you to Xanadu
Shake your body, shake your body
Shake your body, shake

Behind the groove
You can put away your masquerade
Behind the groove
You won't ever have to be afraid

So get on up 
Behind the groove
And shake your body 
Get behind the groove
Open up and take the music in 
Get behind the groove
You better get on up 
Behind the groove
Come to the party 
Get behind the groove
Life is waitin' for you to begin

Behind the groove
Open your eyes and see what's in store
Behind the groove
I must be the one you're searchin' for

Got to move, get behind the groove
Why don't you let your spirit play
Another me and another you
If we make it through to Xanadu, ooh

You ought to go with me
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
Shake
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
Shake (a-la-la-la)
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
Shake (a-la-la-la)
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
Shake (a-la-la-la)

Everybody sing la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
Groove me, groove me, groove me, groove me

La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la (la-la-la-la-la-la)
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Got to move, get behind the groove
Why don't you let your spirit play
Another me and another you
If we make it through to Xanadu, oh

You can put away your masquerade
You won't ever have to be afraid of me
Open up your eyes and see what is in store
I must the one that you are searching for

Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
(There is romance just a glance away) shake
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
(You can dance forever and a day) shake
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
(A shake-shake) shake (shake)
Shake it on up, shake it on down, shake it on up
(Well, sing my tune, just sing, la-la) shake

La-la-la-la-la-la-la
La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la

Groove me

Groove me, groove me, groove me, groove me, groove me
You ought to go with me
