Rock steady, baby
That's what I feel now
Just call the song exactly what it is
Just move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you're moving, rock steady
Rock steady, baby
Let's call this song exactly what it is
What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
(What it is) what it is I might be doin'
(What it is) this funky dance all night
(Put your hands up in the air)
(Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
(You gotta take this burn)? 
That tear we all inside)? 

Rock steady, rock steady baby
Rock steady, rock steady baby

Jump and move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you're moving, rock steady
Rock steady

Let's call this song exactly what it is
(What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
What it is is I might be doin' (what it is)
This funky dance all night, ah
(Put your hands up in the air)
(Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
You gotta take this burn)? 
(That tear we all inside)? 

Rock steady baby, rock steady, woo
Rock steady
Rock steady, rock steady (what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
What it is is I might be doin'
This funky dance all night, ah
(Put your hands up in the air)
(Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
(You gotta take this burn)? 
(That tear we all inside)? 

Rock steady, steady baby, rock, rock steady, baby
