Lyrics
Well, come on little mamma, let's tear this dance floor up
Come on little mamma, let's tear this dance floor up
Come on little mamma, let's see you strut your stuff
Tear it up pa pa pa pa
Tear it up pa pa pa pa
Tear it up
Tear it up
Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up

Well you step back baby, and you move my way,
step around again and let me hear you say

Yeah, you (?) back baby, turn it my way
Turn around again and let me hear what you say
Tear it up
Tear it up
Come on little mamma, let's tear this dance floor up

Tear it up pa pa pa pa
Tear it up pa pa pa pa pa pa
Tear it up
Tear it up
Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
I'm a-leavin' little mamma, gonna be gone a long long time
I'm a-leavin' little mamma, gonna be gone a long long time
Come on little mamma, let's show you a real good time

Whoaa

Tear it up pa pa pa pa

Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
Tear it up pa pa pa pa
Tear it up pa pa pa pa

Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
Tear it up pa pa pa pa
Tear it up pa pa pa pa

Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
Come on little mamma, tear this dance floor up
