lyrics

I'm the first on the dance floor
I just don't really care
Everyone else in the room just
Sits there and stares
I'm all bustin' a move like it's 1998
All the girls look like they're afraid
All the guys just think I'm lame
Junior's on his cellular phone just filming the whole thing
Desperately hoping the footage will go viral, or something

I'm going left, and I'm going right
I'm going left, and I'm going right
The DJ can't believe this sight
The DJ can't believe this sight
I'm lucid, completely sober, wide awake at night
Some are laughing
Some are loving it
Others are full of fright

And I don't care what I look like
I'm just having fun
And I don't care what I look like
I'm just having fun

I'm the first on the dance floor
I haven't heard The Chicken Dance
Take your Electric Slide and, and throw it in the trash
I'm all groovin' and movin' in crazy, mysterious ways
Everyone else is insecure but I haven't felt this great in days
Now some brave folks surround me, and are thinking about joining
But I don't even notice
I'm so focused on my motions
And when they finally join me
You might think they annoy me
But it's nice to have company
And yes, it's now a party

And I don't care what I look like
I'm just having fun
And I don't care what I look like
I'm just having fun
