Pata Pata is the name of a dance
We do down Johannesburg way.
And everybody starts to move
As soon as Pata Pata starts to play

Aya sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pat
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata

Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata
Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pat
A-hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata pat

Haji-a sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata
A sat wuguga sat ju benga jo-ho
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata pat
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si

Hoo, every Friday and Saturday night
It's Pata Pata time
The dance keeps going all night long
Till the morning sun begins to shine

Aya sat wuguga sat
Aya sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pat
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata
A sat wuguga sat ju benga sat si pata

Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata
Hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pat
A-hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pata pat
A-hihi ha mama, hi-a-ma sat si pat
