Let me see you go back
(Move, it's the L -I- Y- A- H)
Let me see you come forth
Now let me see you go back
(Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H)
Let me see you come forth
Uh, now let me see you go back
(Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H)
Let me see you come forth
Uh, let me see you go back
(Move it's the L- I -Y -A -H)
Now let me see you come forth, yeah

It's Friday and I'm ready to swing
Pick up my girls and hit the party scene
Tonight, oh 
It's alright, hmm
So get up and let this funky mellow groove
Get you in the mood
'Cause you know it's alright
So Mr. DJ keep the music grooving
(Keep on grooving)
(Don't stop moving) Don't stop moving
Let me see you, let me see you go

Back, back, forth, and forth, go back
Let me see you go
Back, back, forth, and forth, alright
I wanna see you go
Back, back, forth, and forth, come on
Back, back, forth, and forth
See you go back and forth

Now it's time for you to make your move
To the dance floor
So throw your hands in the air
And wave them around like you just don't care, yeah
Move, it's the L-I-Y-A-H
Ripping up the stage
I got jazz personality, G mentality, beats from Soul Train

So if the DJ keep on moving (keep on moving)
Don't stop moving
Now let me see you go back and forth

Back, back, forth, and forth 
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Oh, let me see

Hey here's the formality, get up on the floor you see
Show your personality, be who you wanna be, tell me
See can you feel that groove, movin' down to you
Hey, I wanna keep this party going on all night

So if the Mister DJ keep on moving
Keep on moving
Don't stop moving (don't stop moving)
Now let me see you go back and forth,  back and forth

Back, back, forth, and forth, all night
Let me see you go
Back, back, forth, and forth
Go back back, forth, forth
Back, back, forth, and forth, bring it back
Take it back (back, back, forth, and forth) Alright
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Back, back, forth, and forth
Let me see you go
Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
(Back, back, forth, and forth) Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
(Back, back, forth, and forth) Move, it's the L- I -Y- A- H
