(AZLyrics)

Let’s groove tonight

Share the spice of life

Baby slice it right

We gonna groove tonight

Let this groove, get you to move,

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes,

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Gonna tell you what you can do

With my love, alright

Let you know girl you’re looking good

You’re out of sight, alright

Just move yourself and glide like a 747

And lose yourself in the sky

Among the clouds in the heavens

 

Let this groove, light up your fuse

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Let me tell you what you can do

With my love, alright

 

Gotta let you know girl you’re looking good

You’re out of sight, alright

 

Just tell the DJ to play your favorite tune

Then you know it’s okay

What you found is happening now

 

Let this groove, light up your fuse

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Let this groove, get you to move

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

You will find peace of mind on the floor

Take a little time, come and see, you and me

Give a little sign, I’ll be there after a while

If you want my love

 

We can boogie on down

Down, we boogie on down

Down, we boogie on down

Down, we boogie on down

On down

 

Let’s groove tonight

Share the spice of life

Baby slice it right

We’re gonna groove tonight

 

Let this groove, light up your fuse

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Let this groove, light up your fuse

It’s alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up alright, alright

 

Let this groove, get you to move

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Let this groove, get you to move

It’s alright, alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up, alright, alright

 

Let this groove, light up your fuse

It’s alright, alright

Let this groove, set in your shoes

So stand up alright, alright
