feel the rhythm

Written By: John/Paterson/Alexander

feel the rhythm
the rhythm of your heartbeat
global rhythm something we can share
no matter what your size shape or colour
pass round the feeling
everybody everywhere

all around the globe people feel the rhythm
good vibrations floating in the air
we're on the same boat crossing the ocean
join in the dancing children everywhere

and we'll dance, and we'll dance

deep in the forest (we feel the rhythm)
and in the jungle (its in your heartbeat)
out in the desert (share the rhythm)
all around the globe (everybody everywhere)

and we'll dance, and we'll dance

Repeat after me say
dayo dayo (dayo dayo)
day ay ay o (day ay ay o)
ay ay ay o (ay ay ay o)
I said hey (hey)

the rhythm the rhythm
the rhythm all day long

and we'll dance
