Everywhere I go 
I hear the music in the streets
People pass me by, 
I hear the tappin' of their feet

I could get down boys, 
With all that's goin' wrong
But I was born to sing a dancin' song

But in between these lines, 
I see the sadness in your eyes
And as I'm lookin' inside, 
They're sayin', "please don't cha pass me by"

But you know I can't feel, 
And know everything I should
I just start by takin' it where it's good

So everywhere I go, 
I hear the musical beat
Little children pass by, 
I hear their laughter fill the street

I should be sad boys, 
And I could with what's goin' down
But I was born to sing me a dancin' song
