Rock steady, baby
That's what I feel now
Just call the song exactly what it is
Just move your hips with a feeling from side to side
Sit yourself down in your car and take a ride
While you're moving, rock steady
Rock steady, baby
Let's call this song exactly what it is
What it is, what it is, what it is)
It's a funky and lowdown feeling (what it is)
In the hips from left to right (what it is)
(What it is) what it is I might be doin'
(What it is) this funky dance all night
(Put your hands up in the air)
(Got a feelin' you ain't got a care)
