PATA PATA

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 dance
We do down Johannesburg where
And everybody starts to move
As soon as Pata Pata starts to play

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…

Every Friday and Saturday Night
It’s Pata Pata time!
The dance keeps going all night long
Til’ the morning sun begins to shine!

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…

Not being a native of South Africa, I may have mispronounced some words, but tried to keep in time with the lively beat.
