Party people
Party people
Can y'all get funky?
Soul Sonic Force, can y'all get funky?
The Zulu Nation, can y'all get funky?
Yeah, just hit me
Just taste the funk and hit me
Just get on down and hit me
Bambaataa's jus' gettin' so funky, now, hit me
Yeah, just hit me

It's time to chase your dreams
Up out your seats, make your body sway
Socialize, get down, let your soul lead the way
Shake it now, go ladies, it's a livin' dream
Love, life, live
Come play the game, our world is free
Do what you want but scream

We know a place where the nights are hot
It is a house of funk, females and males
Both headed all for the disco
The D.J. plays your favorite blasts
Takes you back to the past, music's magic, poof
Bump, bump, bump, get bump with some flash, people

(Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don't stop)
(Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don't stop)

The Soul Sonic Force, Mr. Biggs, Pow Wow, and M.C. Globe
We emphasize the show, we got ego
Make this your night, just slip it right, and by day
As the people say, live it up, shucks
No work or play, our world is free
Be what you be, be

(Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don't stop)
(Rock, rock to the Planet Rock, don't stop)

You're in a place where the nights are hot
Where nature's children dance and set a chance
On this mother Earth, which is our rock
The time has come, and work for soul, show you really got soul
Are you ready hump bump bump, get bump, now let's go, house
Twist and turn, the you let your body slide
You got the body rock and pop, bounce and pounce
Everybody just rock it, don't stop it
Gotta rock it, don't stop
Keep tickin' and tockin', work it all around the clock
Everybody keep rockin' and clockin' and shockin' and rockin', go house
Everybody say, rock it, don't stop it (rock it, don't stop it)
Well hit me, Mr. Biggs (Mr. Biggs)
Pow-wow (pow-wow)
G-L-O-B-E (G-L-O-B-E)
The soul sonic force

Gotta rock this and pop it, 'cause it's the century
There is such a place that creates such a melody
Our world is but a land of a master jam, get up and dance
It's time to chase your dreams
Up out your seats, make your body sway
Socialize, get down, let your soul lead the way
Shake it now, go ladies, it's a livin' dream
Love, life, live

Everybody say, rock it, don't stop it (rock it, don't stop it)
Everybody say, shockin' and clockin' (shockin' and clockin')
Everybody say, ich, mi, sun, chi (ich, mi, sun, chi)
Say, Planet Rock (Planet Rock)
It's the sure shot (it's the sure shot)
Say, Planet Rock (Planet Rock)
It's the sure shot (it's the sure shot)

So twist and turn, then you let your - slide and glide
You got the body rock and pop, bounce and pounce
So hit me
Just taste the funk and hit me
Just get on down and hit me
Bambaataa's gettin' so funky, now hit me
Every piece of the world
Rate the message of our world
All men, women, boys, and girls
Hey, our Planet Rock is superb, get on it
You got the groove, move, da-doo-doo-doo-doo-da
Feel the groove
Feel it, do what ya want but ya know ya got to be cool and boogie
Out on the floor, go down
Bring it low
Close to the ground
Everybody just rock it, don't stop it, gotta rock it don't stop
Keep tickin' and tockin'
Work it all around the clock
Everybody just rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop
Keep tickin' and tockin'
Work it all around the clock
Everybody just rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop it
We gotta rock it, don't stop

    General Commentholy shit, this song started it all. it's like 6 songs in one. Electro defined, hip-hop defined. And it introduced another generation to Kraftwerk.

    General CommentWhen I first heard this song, it renewed my faith in what I considered a dead and barren genre.

    General CommentI am so sorry this happened to you.

    Truly, humans behave like herd animals when gathered in numbers.
    I hope and pray that as with Adam's, your own rib can recover and bring great blessing into our fallen and depraved world.
