Sweet Soul Music (Single Version) - Lyrics

Do ya like good music?
(Play girl) (get it, get it)
Ha, that sweet soul music
(Dancin') (go get it)
Just as long as it's swingin'
(Dance girl)
Oh yeah

Oh-oh-oh yeah
(Band swings)

Way out here on the floor, ya'll
(Play girl)
We're going to a go-go
(Dancin')
Dancin' with the music
(Dance girl)
Oh-oh-yeah
(I'll play it for you)
Oh yeah
(Band swings)
