Woo

What is happening here
Something's going on that's not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights
We're gonna have a party
It's starting tonight

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

The room is hot and that's good
Some of my friends came by from the neighborhood
The people startin' a climb the walls
Ooh, it looks like everybody is having a ball

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Come on
Woo
Alright

Everybody starts to lose control
When the music is right
If you see somebody hangin' around
Don't get uptight
The only thing we wanna do tonight
Is go 'round and 'round
And turn upside down
Come on, let's get down

(Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

So come on, let's get loose
Don't hold back 'cause it ain't no use
Hard to keep your feet on the ground
'Cause when we like to party
We only wanna get down

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling, baby
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling, whoa

Say what?
Can't stop now
Just getting started
Everybody, clap your hands
Come on
Everybody, let's dance
Oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
