Do you wan-na feel good,  (no lyrics)  Wan-na laugh and play?  (Let's laugh and play.)
Wan-na have some fun.  (no lyrics)  Throw your blues a - way.  (Your blues a - way.)
Are you feel - ing sad.  (no lyrics)  Got a prob - lem?  Here's a cure.  (We got the cure.)

Reach out your arms and swing your part - ner.
Make like a bird and try to fly.
Come on out there you hens and roost - er.
Just hook your arms now and don't be shy.
