Lyrics

Lauren with background vocals from Cimorelli:
I came to dance, dance, dance, dance
I hit the floor 'cause that's my plans, plans, plans, plans
I'm wearing all my favorite brands, brands, brands, brands
Give me space for both my hands, hands, hands, hands
Yeah, yeah

Amy with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on, yeah

Cimorelli:
I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying a-yo, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying a-yo
Baby, let's go

'Cause we gon' rock this town
We gon' go all night
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite
'Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite

Christina with background vocals from Cimorelli:
I came to move, move, move, move
Get out the way me and my crew, crew, crew, crew
I'm in the south so I'm gonna do, do, do, do
Just what I came here to do, do, do, do
Yeah, yeah

Amy with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause it goes on and on and on
And it goes on and on and on

Cimorelli:
I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying a-yo, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying a-yo
Baby, let’s go

'Cause we gon' rock this town
We gon' go all night
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite
Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite

Dani with background vocals from Cimorelli:
I'm gonna take it all out
I'm gonna be the last one standing
Higher overall, like
I'm gonna be the last one landing

Lisa with background vocals from Cimorelli:
'Cause I, I, believe it
And I, I, I
I just want it all
I just want it all
I’m gonna put my hands in the air
Put your hands in the air
Put your hands in the air

Cimorelli:
I throw my hands up in the air sometimes
Saying a-yo, gotta let go
I wanna celebrate and live my life
Saying a-yo
Baby, let's go

'Cause we gon' rock this town
We gon' go all night
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite
Cause I told you once
Now I told you twice
We gon' light it up
Like it's dynamite, yeah
