[Verse 1]

Baby, baby

Let’s get together

Honey, honey, me and you

And do the things

Ah, do the things

That we like to do

Oh, do a little dance

Make a little love

Get down tonight, get down tonight

Do a little dance

Make a little love

Get down tonight, get down tonight

Baby, baby

I’ll meet you

Same place, same time

Where we can all get together

And ease up our mind

Make a little love

Get down tonight, get down tonight (Baby)
