You Gotta Sing When Your Spirit Says Sing
Traditional Song

You gotta sing when your spirit says sing,
You gotta sing when your spirit says sing,
When your spirit says sing,
You gotta sing right along,
You gotta sing when your spirit says sing.

You gotta shout when your spirit says shout,
You gotta shout when your spirit says shout,
When your spirit says shout,
You gotta shout right out loud,
You gotta shout when your spirit says shout.

You gotta wiggle when your spirit says wiggle,
You gotta wiggle when your spirit says wiggle,
When your spirit says wiggle,
You gotta wiggle like a worm,
You gotta wiggle when your spirit says wiggle.

You gotta shake when your spirit says shake,
You gotta shake when your spirit says shake,
When your spirit says shake,
You gotta shake like a snake,
You gotta shake when your spirit says shake.

You gotta dance when your spirit says dance,
You gotta dance when your spirit says dance,
When your spirit says dance,
You gotta dance right along,
You gotta dance when your spirit says dance.

You gotta sing when your spirit says sing,
You gotta sing when your spirit says sing,
When your spirit says sing,
You gotta sing right along,
You gotta sing when your spirit says sing.
