"Groove Is In The Heart" as written by Herbie Hancock, Dmitry Brill, Towa Tei and Kier Kirby....
Dig

The chills that you spill up my back
Keep me filled with satisfaction when we're done
Satisfaction of what's to come

I couldn't ask for another
No, I couldn't ask for another

Your groove, I do deeply dig
No walls, only the bridge, my supper dish
My succotash wish

I couldn't ask for another
No, I couldn't ask for another

Groove is in the heart, Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart, Groove is in the heart

Watch out!

The depth of hula groove
Move us to the nth hoop
We're going through to, Horten hears a who

I couldn't ask for another
No, I couldn't ask for another

DJ Soul was on a roll
I been told he can't be sold
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious

I couldn't ask for another

Someone's in this torso (yeah)
Hot! Gotta deal you wanna know (wanna know)
Dee-Liteful truly Dee-Liteful (liteful)
Makin' it doin' it 'specially at show (show)
Feeling kinda high like a Hendrix haze (haze)
Music makes motion moves like a maze (maze)
All inside of me (side)
Heart especially (yeah)
Help of the rhythm where I wanna be (c'mon)
Flowin' glowin' with electric eyes (ha)
You dip to the dive baby you'll realize (yeah)
Baby you'll see the funky side of me
Baby you'll see that rhythm is the key (hmm!)
Get get ready with it (with it)
Can't can't quit it (quit it)
Stomp on the street when I hear a funk beat (beat)
Playing Pied Piper
Follow what's true
Baby just sing about the groove (sing it)

Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart
Groove is in the heart

    Such an anachronous, weird tune. Luv to party on this one... and don't forget, Towa Tei came from this one ;)

    General CommentI think this song is about how Miss Kier wants to do it with this guy, but she wants to see him dance first because better dancers are better to do it with.

    I mean, aside from it being about how groove is actually in the heart and all.

    General CommentHere's the rap (after "Just de-lovely and delicious/I couldn't ask for another"):

    Someone’s in this torso (yeah)
    Hot! Got a deal you wanna know (wanna know)
    De-liteful truly de-liteful (-liteful)
    Makin’ it doin’ it 'specially at a show (show)
    Feeling kinda high like a Hendrix haze (haze)
    Music makes motion moves like a maze (maze)
    All inside of me (side)
    Heart especially (yeah)
    Help of the rhythm where I wanna be (c’mon)
    Flowin’ glowin’ with electric eyes (ha)
    You dip to the dive baby you’ll realize (yeah)
    Baby you’ll see the funky side of me
    Baby you’ll see that rhythm is the key (hmm!)
    Get get ready with it (with it)
    Can’t can’t quit it (quit it)
    Stomp on the street when I hear a funk beat (beat)
    Playing Pied Piper
    Follow what’s true
    Baby just sing about the groove (sing it)

    General CommentSometimes when I'm at a concert or listening to a cd, the band strikes me as doing all the technical stuff right but just lacking a certain something. All I can think to myself at those moments is "groove is in the heart."
