I-I'm gettin' the spirit in the dark... (Mm-hmm...)
I'm gettin' the spirit in the dark... (Mm-hmm...)
People movin'... oh, ain't we groovin'?
Just gettin' the spirit (Mm-hmm...) in the dark...

Tell me, sister, how do you feel?
Tell me, my brother, brother, brother, how do you feel?
If you feel like dancin', get up and let's start dancin'!
Start gettin' the spirit (Start gettin' the spirit!), spirit in the dark... (In the dark...)

(Doot-doot!) It's like Sally Walker (Do-do-doot-doot, do-do!) sittin' in a saucer!
(Do-do-doot-doot!) That's how ya (doot) do it! (Do-do-doot-doot, do-ooh!) It ain't nothin' to it!
(Do-do-doot-doot!) Rise, Sally, rise!
(Do-do-doot-doot!) Put your hands on your hips, cover your eyes, and move! (Move!)
With the spirit... (With the spirit...)
Go on and move (Move!), move with the spirit... (With the spirit...)
Oh, move (Move!), move with the spirit... (With the spirit...)
Now-now-now, move (Move!) with the spirit...

Are you gettin' the spirit? (Yeah!) Are you gettin' it in the dark? (Yeah!)
I wonder are you gettin' the spirit, (Yeah!) Gettin' the spirit in the dark? (Yeah!)
People movin'... yeah, everybody's groovin',
Just gettin' the spirit (Start gettin' the spirit!)
Are you gettin' it, are you gettin' it in the dark? (In the dark...)

(Doot-doot!) It's like Sally Walker (Do-do-doot-doot, do-do!) sittin' in her saucer!
(Do-do-doot-doot!) That's how ya (doot) do it! (Do-do-doot-doot, do-ooh!) Now get on up to it...
(Do-do-doot-doot!) Rise, Sally, ride!
(Doot, do-do-doot-doot!) Put your hands on your hips, cover your eyes, and move on! (Move!)
With the spirit! (With the spirit...)
Go on, move! (Move!) Move with the spirit! (With the spirit!)
Move, with the spirit! (With the spirit!) Hey, now move, (Move!)
Move with the spirit...

(I think I got it!)

All of my brothers! (Move with the spirit!) All of my sisters! (Move with the spirit!)
Move (Move with the spirit!) with the spirit! (Move with the spirit!)
Keep on movin'! (Move with the spirit!) Keep on groovin'! (Move with the spirit!)
Move! (Move with the spirit!) Keep on groovin'! (Move with the spirit!)
Better clap your hands (Move! With the spirit!) like I know you can! (Groove! With the spirit!)
Better move your feet, (Move! With the spirit!) your feet on the beat... (Groove! With the spirit!)
Oh, move! (Move with the spirit!) Move! (Move with the spirit!)
Oh, move! (Move with the spirit!) Move! (Move with the spirit!)
Move with the spirit... (Move with the spirit!) Yeah, move on... (Move with the spirit!)
Move with the spirit... (Move with the spirit!) Keep on groovin' on... (Move with the spirit!)
Oh, right on! (Move! With the spirit!) Move on... (Move! With the spirit!)
Right on! (Move! With the spirit!) Move on... (Move! With the spirit!)
The spirit! (Move with the spirit!) The spirit! (Move with the spirit!)
Spirit! (Move with the spirit!) Spirit... (Move with the spirit!)
Yeah, yeah, yeah! (Move with the spirit!) Spirit! Move on! (Move with the spirit!)
Yeah! (Move with the spirit!) Groove on... (Move with the spirit!)
Oh! (Move! With the spirit!) God Almighty! (Move! With the spirit!)
Yeah! (Move! With the spirit!)
