Pump up the jam, pump it up

While your feet are stompin’

And the jam is pumpin’

Look ahead, the crowd is jumpin’

Pump it up a little more

Get the party going on the dance floor

See, ’cause that’s where the party’s at

And you’ll find out if you do that

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

Make my day
