"Pata Pata" is a song written by South African artist Dorothy Masuka and first released by Miriam Makeba in 1957 when she still lived in South Africa.The song was released in the United States in 1967 for her studio album of the same name. It was successful on the Billboard Hot 100, and peaked at #12
The song is considered by many to be Makeba's signature hit and the song has since been covered by many artists. Originally written and sung in the Xhosa language, the song's title "Pata Pata" means "Touch Touch" in English.
So we grooved and said: "Check it out!"This is the Pata Pata...So we grooved and said: "Check it out!"This is the Pata Pata...
That’s it, lady!This is the Pata Pata…That’s it, lady!This is the Pata Pata…
Pata Pata is the name of the danceWe do down Johannesburg whereAnd everybody starts to moveAs soon as Pata Pata starts to play
Every Friday and Saturday NightIt’s Pata Pata time!The dance keeps going all night longTil’ the morning sun begins to shine!
