Let your feet just go, who needs to think when your feet just go
(Dance) Let your feet just go, who needs to think when your feet just go
(Shut up and dance) Let your feet just go, who needs to think when your feet just go

We could make a circle and your girl could watch
Push back nigga cause the crown I spot

You know we rockin it man, do it till the mornin and I do it again

Don't (Don't) stop (Stop) party till the break of day
Are (are) you (You) ready, shut up and dance

(Dance) Let your feet just go, who needs to think when your feet just go
