Gather around
Listen up
Gather around
Listen listen
Step this way

It’s all of us together
We are family
Our love
It’s a different kind of feeling

Our way of life
Expressed in this group 
All this love shown
Is different and beautiful

When we unite
It’s strong stronger together
One land one heart

Stepping with your feet like that
Stepping and expressing with your face
Stepping with a happy heart
Stepping this way

Stepping to the back to the front
Stepping low and high

All the people
The people are all family
The love of our people
Has a different kind of feeling

Hey hey stand up
Get your hands up
Move and lift your feet
Let’s dance together

Swaying only the sway is on my mind
Get your hands up 
Move and lift your feet
Let’s dance together
Lift your feet and hands 
My body wants to spin around
Let’s see you all stand
​C’mon c’mon let’s dance
