It's up to you, to show that it can be done
Young and old are doing it, I'm told
Just one "Hi!" and you too will be sold
It's called Le Freak, they're doing it night and day
Come along with us, we'll show you the way
...
All that passion - it knocks you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, chant the rhyme
Come on along and have a real good time
Nights and days, ah, stompin' opposite boy
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to the fifth floor
Find a spot out on the floor
Original Lyrics:
It's up to you, it surely can be done
Young and old are doing it, I'm told
Just one try, and you too will be sold
It's called Le Freak, they're doing it night and day
Allow us, we'll show you the way
...
All that pressure got you down
Has your head spinning all around
Feel the rhythm, check the rhyme
Come on along and have a real good time
Like the days of "Stompin' at the Savoy"
Now we freak, oh what a joy
Just come on down, to the 54
Find a spot out on the floor

Using love to keep me warm

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a lover

And if I can't get in, I never try

I've been kicked around since I was born
And now it's all right, it's okay

Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother

Well now, I get low and I get high
And if I can't get either, I really try
Got the wings of heaven on my shoes
I'm a dancing man, and I just can't lose
