[Ab/Eb]               [Eb]     [Db/Eb]                [Eb]All you do is call me

Going up and down, all around the bends
You could have a bumper car, bumping
This amusement never ends

I get it right!
I've kicked the habit (kicked the habit, kicked the habit)
Shed my skin (shed my skin)

I go dancing in (we go dancing in)
Won't you show for me (show for me)
And I will show for you (show for you)
Please, show for me (show for me), I will show for you
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, I do mean you
Only you
You've been coming through
I'm going to build that power
Build, build up that power,
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
Going to feel that power, yeah, build in you
Come on, come on, help me through
come on, come on, help me through
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, you
I've been feeding the rhythm
I've been feeding the rhythm
It's what we're doing, doing
All day and night
