You could have a steam train
You could have an aeroplane flying

I'll be anything you need
You could have a big dipper
You could have a bumper car, bumping

Why don't you call my name
This will be my testimony
'Cause I will be your honey bee
Where the fruit is as sweet as can be
I want to be your sledgehammer
You'd better call the sledgehammer
I'm going to be-the sledgehammer
I'm your sledgehammer

Shed my skin (Shed my skin)
I go dancing in, (We could go dancing in)
I will show for you (Show for you)

Only you, you've been coming through
Build, build up that power, hey
I've been feeding the rhythm

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been feeding the rhythm
All day and night, come on and help me do, come on and help me do
