Get up, get groovin',
Start your movin'
To the sounds around you
As the world goes by
Quit complaining, need no trainin'
I wanna see you strainin'
I wanna see you dance
Don't ask me why

Better get movin'
Start your groovin'
'Cause life is passing you by!

I've seen you here before
You never move your feet
You're such a pitiful sight
Always sitting in your seat
You say you want romance
But you don't want to dance
Well it's not gonna happen
Unless you shake your pants

Start your movin'
So you better get groovin'
'Cause life is passing you by!

GET UP!
GET UP!
Get up, get up, get up!

You're all dressed up
You look real fine
But you don't dance
So you waste my time
You came from home alone
You're leaving all alone
It's no wonder, buddy
You wouldn't get your ass up off your throne

So start your movin'
So you better get groovin'
'Cause life just passed you by!

    General CommentThe parts in parentheses are obviously the words I can't decipher due to Mike Mattingly's eccentric vocal delivery. Everything else I'm 98% certain about.

    As far as meaning goes, this is obviously written about audience members who stand still at Skankin' Pickle show, as if such people existed!
