Pump up the jam, pump it up. While you feet are stompin’. And the jam is pumpin’. Look at here the crowd is jumpin’. Pump it up a little more. Get the party going on the dance floor. Seek us that’s where the party’s at. And you’ll find out if you’re too bad. I don’t want a place to stay. Get your booty on the floor tonight. Make my day. I don’t want a place to stay. Get your booty on the floor tonight. Make my day.
