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)
