I'm gettin' the spirit in the dark, hmm-hmm
I'm gettin' the spirit in the dark, hmm-hmm
People movin', oh, and they groovin'
Just gettin' the spirit, hmm-hmm, in the dark

Tell me sister, how do ya feel?
Tell me, my brother, brother, brother, how do you feel?
Do you feel like dancin'?
Then get up and let's start dancin'
Start gettin' the spirit (start gettin' the spirit) spirit in the dark (in the dark)

(doo-doo) it's like Sally Walker (doo-doo-doo-doo)
Sittin' in a saucer (doo-doo-doo-doo)
That's how ya do it (doo-doo-doo-doo)
It ain't nothin' to (doo-doo-doo-doo)

Ride, Sally, ride, put your hand on your hips
Cover your eyes and move (move)

With the spirit (with the spirit) go on and move
(Move) move with the spirit (with the spirit) oh, move (move)
Move with the spirit, now, now, now, (move with the spirit) move with the spirit

Are you gettin' the spirit?
(Yeah) are you gettin' it in the dark?
(Yeah) I wonder how you're gettin' the spirit?
(Yeah) gettin' the spirit in the dark

(Yeah) people movin'
Yeah, everybody's groovin'
Just gettin' the spirit (start gettin' in the spirit) are you gettin', are you gettin' it in the dark? (in the dark)

(Doo-doo) it's like Sally Walker (doo-doo-doo-doo)
Sittin' in her saucer (doo-doo-doo-doo)
That's how ya do it (doo-doo-doo-doo)
Now, get on up to it (doo-doo-doo-doo)
Ride, Sally, ride (doo-doo-doo-doo)
Put your hands on your hips (doo-doo-doo-doo)
And cover your eyes (doo-doo-doo-doo)

And move on up with the spirit (with the spirit)
Go on and move (move), move with the spirit (with the spirit)
Move with the spirit (with the spirit), hey now, move (move), move with the spirit

I think I've got it

All of my brothers (move with the spirit)
All of my sisters (move with the spirit)
Move (move with the spirit)
With the spirit (move with the spirit)
Keep on movin' (move with the spirit)
We all groove (groove with the spirit, now)
Move (move with the spirit)
Keep that groove (groove with the spirit)
You gotta move your hands (move)
Get together and groove
Gotta move your feet (groove)
The spirit on the beat (move)
Oh, move (move with the spirit)
Move (move with the spirit)
Oh move (move with the spirit)
Move (move with the spirit)
Move with the spirit (move with the spirit)
(Move with the spirit)
(Move with the spirit)
(Move with the spirit)
(Ooh, the spirit)
(Ooh, the spirit)
(Ooh, the spirit)
(Move with the spirit)
