What is happening here
Something's going on that's not quite clear
Somebody turn on the lights
We're gonna have a party
It's starting tonight

[Chorus]
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

The room is hot and that's good
Some of my friends came by from the neighborhood
The people startin' a climb the walls
Ooh it looks like everybody is having a ball

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Come on!

Everybody start to lose control
When the music is right
If you see somebody hangin' around
Don't get uptight
The only thing we want to do tonight
Is go 'round and 'round
And turn upside down
Come on! Let's get down!

So come on! Let's get loose
Don't hold back
'Cause ain't no use
Hard to keep your feet on the ground
'Cause when we like to party
We only want to get down

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Say what?
Can't stop now
Just getting started
Everybody clap your hands
Come on
Everybody let's dance

(Oh, oh, oh, oh)

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling
Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling

Oh, what a feeling
When we're dancing on the ceiling baby baby
We gonna dance all night

Se La

length: 5:53
composer: Greg Phillinganes, Lionel Richie
lyricist: Lionel Richie
You know sometimes I sit and wonder
Just how this world would be
If we had all the people laughing
And everybody living in harmony

We have to say se la, se la
Talking to the people
Se la, se la
It's time you thought about it
Se la, se la (hey, hey)
Se la, se la

There would be no more living in desperation
And no more hatred and deceit
Tell me can you imagine
All the children playing
And everyone dancing in the street

We se la, se la, se la
Do it, say it
Se la, se la
Talking to everybody (yeah)
Se la, se la
You play for the people (man)
Play for the people

It's time you know for everyone to come together
I know it's hard but this dream must come to light
Because life should be one big celebration
I'm talkin' to you now
Only we can make things right

We se la, se la, se la
Counting on everybody (yeah)
Se la, se la
I know you thought about it
Se la, se la
Se la, se la
We want to say
Se la, se la (ooh, ooh, ooh)
Se la, se la
Do it on the good foot
Se la, se la
Se la, se la
Talk about it, sing about it
Talk about it, sing about it
Talk about it, sing about it
Se la, se la

(Huh) All the children
Tell me about the children
We've got to help them now to survive
One world, one heart, is our salvation
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Let us keep the dream alive

Se se la, se la, se la
Se la, se la, se la
Se la, se la
Well... I know, I know
Se la (say it), se la (say it)
(Say it), (say it)
Se la, se la
Everybody come together

Se la (say it), se la (say it)
Don't hold back no longer
Se la, se la
Can't you see it, just believe it
Se la (say it), se la, ooh, ooh, ooh
Talking to you now
Se la, se la
Se la, se la
Se la, se la
Se la (save the children) se la
Se la, se la

Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
With you standing there
I'm so aware
Of how much I care for you

You are more than now
You are for always
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away

You make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
And when I hold you
I only want to say
I love you

Ballerina Girl
The joy you bring me
Every day and night
Holding you tight
How I've waited for your love

Sometimes I've wondered
If you'd ever come my way
Now that I've finally found you
This is where my heart will stay

I'm never gonna break your heart
Never will we drift apart
'Cause all I want to do
Is share my whole life with you

'Cause you make me feel like
There's nothing I can't do
I guess I finally realized
There's nothing else like loving you

Ballerina Girl
You are so lovely
I can see in you
My dreams come true
Don't you ever go away
Ballerina Girl

Don't Stop

length: 8:08
composer: Lionel Richie, John Barnes
lyricist: Lionel Richie
I can feel the night time coming
I can feel my resistance falling so low
Don't you know baby you got it
This hold on me
But I love just what you're doing
Oh you're all I need

When I'm dancing with you girl
With the lights down low
The power you possess
You know I can't let go
Oh listen to me
Don't stop moving, baby
Tonight's the night
Don't stop moving baby
It'll be alright

Can't you feel the fire burning?
It feels so right
Oh can't you feel my body yearning?
Hold me tight
Don't hold back, keep rising
Girl can't you see
All I need is your sweet loving
Oh to satisfy me

When you move your arms close
The magic's in your eyes
You know you turn me on
You've got me hypnotized
Oh let me tell you
Don't stop moving baby
Tonight's the night
Oh don't stop moving baby
It'll be alright
Listen to me, don't stop moving baby
Tonight's the night
Oh don't stop moving baby
It'll be alright
Oh, it's you for me, everything I want
Everything I need
We are lucky to feel
What we feel tonight
All the love that's been together
Tonight's the night

Oh baby don't stop moving baby
Tonight's the night
Don't stop moving baby
It'll be alright
Don't stop, I said don't stop

Deep River Woman

composer: Lionel Richie
lyricist: Lionel Richie
Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

I spent a night in L.A.
Just another chance to see you
Just you and I
Wanted you to know
That my playing days are over
'Cause all I do is think of you
The writing's on the wall

Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

I've been out in the world
Yes, the fast life had me going
Now all that's changed
I finally make up my mind
About the one thing
I've been knowing
You're the only girl
I've ever cared for in this world

Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

You kind of love girl is forever
It took me a long time to realize
That I've come so far
And end up going nowhere
Oh, girl, I need you by my side

Oh deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

Love Will Conquer All

length: 5:42
composer: Lionel Richie, Greg Phillinganes
lyricist: Cynthia Weil, Lionel Richie
Here we are
Out here me and you
Reaching out each other
Is all that we can do

Here we stand
Trying not to fall
There's no need to worry
Love will conquer all

Do you really want to know
Just how long love will last
Will all of the bad times pass
How can we make things right

Ooh and why
Why is the world so unkind,
We surely can find peace of mind
If we only see the light, can't we see that

Here we are
Out here me and you
Reaching out each other
Is all that we can do

Ooh here we stand
Trying not to fall
There's no need to worry
Love will conquer all

Can somebody tell me why
Why do our dreams go wrong
Why can't we all belong
Ooh, where do we start
Oh and tell me when
When will we ever learn
There's nowhere else we can turn
The truth is in our hearts, here we are together
Sometimes the road gets hard to travel
Sometimes the pains too much to bear
Sometimes when life seems to unravel
That's the time oh - to say
We're gonna make it anyway
Can't we see that

Here we are
Out here me and you
Reaching out each other
Is all that we can do

Here we stand
Trying not to fall
There's no need to worry
Love will conquer all

Tonight Will Be Alright

lyricist: Lionel Richie
Little darling
Where you've been so long
I've been out here thinking about ya
And the feeling's real strong
Well the time has come to celebrate
You and me girl so sounds great
Cause tonight will be alright
Oh baby

Little darling, come on
Let's take a ride
To a midnight honey town and set it on fire
We don't want to be mad
But we have to be cool
You and me girl
Let's break all the rules
Cause tonight will be alright
Oh my baby, I'm gonna say it again
I can see us moving on
Down the highway
I can see us loving
Till our hearts desire
Anything you want to do girl
You just tell me
Cause it's alright, cause it's alright

Little darling, telling you no use
Keep me thinking about you honey
My soul's on fire
Well if you want me girl
And the games I play
Anything's alright, anything you say
Cause tonight will be alright
Alright, baby I'll say it again, alright
Alright, alright, alright, baby
We gonna make it alright
You and me baby, alright

Say You, Say Me

[Chorus]
Say you, say me; say it for always
That's the way it should be
Say you, say me; say it together
Naturally

I had a dream I had an awesome dream
People in the park playing games in the dark
And what they played was a masquerade
And from behind of walls of doubt a voice was crying out

Say you, say me

[Chorus]

As we go down life's lonesome highway
Seems the hardest thing to do is to find a friend or two
A helping hand
Some one who understands
That when you feel you've lost your way
You've got some one there to say "I'll show you"

[Chorus]

So you think you know the answers, Oh no
'Couse the whole world has got you dancing
That's right, I'm telling you
It's time to start believing - Oh yes
Believing who you are: You are a shining star

[Chorus]

Say it together, naturally.
