Lyrics

Now that I have captured your attention
I wanna steal you for a rhythm and affection
Mr. T said I'm ready for inspection
Show me how you make your first impression
Oh! Oh! Can we take this in
Slow! Slow!
Break it down and drop it
Low! Low!
'Cause I just want to party all night in the neon lights 'til you can let me go!1

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long, baby slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end everyone
All night long, baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! Baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! Baby slow down the song

If you want me I'm accepting applications
So long that we can keep this record on rotation
You know I'm good at mouth to mouth resuscitation
Breath me in breath me out so amazing!
Oh! Oh! Can we take this
Slow! Slow!
Break it down and drop it
Low! Low!
'Cause I just want to party all night in the neon lights 'til you can let me go!

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long, baby slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end everyone
All night long, baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! Baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! baby slow down the song

No stopping till the morning (breath me in, breath me out)
You know I'm ready for it, for it, for it, yeah!
(Breath me in breath me out) The music's got me going (breath me in, breath me out)
No stopping till the morning (breath me in, breath me out)
You know I'm ready for it, for it, for it, yeah!

I just wanna feel your body right next to mine
All night long, baby slow down the song
And when it's coming closer to the end everyone
All night long, baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! Baby slow down the
Song blow blow
Yeah! Baby slow down the song!

How do I do it?
I-I-It's The Cataracs
