|Lyrics:||You see me coming up? Stop
We’re about to shut down this whole block
With the sound, they want to hear
To be clear, we put that flavor in your ear
Rocking to a flow, kick it on a drumbeat
Give you every sound that you wanna hear from me
You hear me rhyming? Stop
We’re about to shut down this whole spot
We’re in the party, here to get wild
Got every-body feeling our style
Ladies all around, here to get down
Feeling on the rhythm, touching the sound
Move with the bass, rock-in the place
Think it’s a joke? Look at my face
We’re here to party, all night
I think we got everybody feeling alright
When we arrive, the real party starts
Watch the lights flash in the middle of the dark
Bodies all move, pop the bottles
Live life fast, it’s full throttle
We got the movement, going with the music
You know what we’re doing, so let’s get to it
Hit the dance floor, cause a scene
We can do this all night if you know what I mean
Pick up the pace, we light up the place
Finish the bottle, open a case
I love how you dance, I love how you shake
I don’t know how much I can take
Break out the moves, catch this whole groove
This right here’s what we came to do
Shut this down, then we take flight
I think we got everybody feeling alright
I got the vibe, you got the moves
Dance together, your friend can too
Pour up the drinks, put um on ice
Tonight we do whatever we like
Start the dance, enter the trance
Just take a chance, this is out of sight
We move how we move, get down, spin around
This is our town and this is our life
The lights go up, you look in my face
We move to the back, hands on your waist
You know we’re gonna leave, fast as a race
Head out the front, go back to my place
We get through the door, hands on your thighs
We can do whatever you like
We jump in the bed and turn out the lights
Oh ya, I think we’re feeling alright

Said Dave: "I enjoy making a living making music as there is something always new to learn. If you know one instrument, you can learn another. If you know how to engineer one style, you can always learn another. My main question I ask myself when writing and making music is "what gives you goosebumps". The mechanics of songwriting and engineering can get quite technical, however at the end of the day its what makes you feel something."
