"Dance to the Music" as written by and Sylvester Stewart....
Get up and dance to the music!
Get on up and dance to the fonky music!

Dance to the Music, dance to the music
Dance to the Music, dance to the music

All we need is a drummer
For people who only need a beat
I'm gonna add a little guitar
And make it easy to move your feet

I'm gonna add some bottom
So that the dancers just won't hide

You might like to hear my organ
I said ride Sally ride
If I could hear the horns blow
Cynthia on the throne, yeah!

Cynthia and Jerry got a message that's sayin'
All the squares, go home!

Dance to the Music, dance to the music
Dance to the Music, dance to the music

    General CommentI never got that ‘Ride, Sally, ride’ quote. I always thought that Sally would refer to Sly's organ but I never actually figured it out.

    General CommentCan you imagine, an interracial group in the 50's? Just goes to show MUSIC is colorblind and it brings people TOGETHER. We need more of that.
