Music:Elton John
Lyrics:Lee Hall
We weren't born to stand still
Ain't a question of will
Gotta move it's a fact
You were born to react
You weren't made to behave
Like you will in the grave
Where music is played
Oh the soul will be swayed
And your feet, they will move
As if only to prove
That it wasn't by chance
We were destined to dance
chorus:
We were born to boogie
We were born to boogie
It ain't a puzzle
'Cause we're blood and muscle
From the day of creation
We were the dance sensation
Come on and shake your bootie
'Cause we were born to boogie
Anyone can get it
'Cause we're born kinetic
Come on Mash Potato
The way God made you
Your feet and your hands
Oh your toes and your glands
Your eyes and your chin
Your face and your skin
Oh your brawn and your brains
Your balls and your chains
We were born to boogie
We were born to boogie
It's been said before
But I will say no more
We were born to boogie
We were born to boogie
We came up from the ocean
In full locomotion
And when we hit the ground
We just danced around
Because they say
It's in the DNA - Boogie!
We're all born to boogie
We're all born to boogie
Come on twist your _____
Like a soul survivor
We're all born to boogie
We're all born to boogie
