Michael Jackson - Get On The Floor

Written by Michael with Louis Johnson of the Brothers Johnson.

It was developed from a song the Brothers Johnson were working on, for their Light Up The Night album. Michael heard the incomplete song, put a melody to it, and recorded it himself.

It featured on Michael's first solo album for CBS/Epic, Off The Wall, released in August 1979.

It was re-recorded by Michael in early 1980 - this newer version was included on new pressings of Off The Wall, in place of the original recording. The newer version also featured as the B-side of Rock With You in the UK and Off The Wall singles in the US.

Get On The Floor - Lyrics

Ah get on the floor and dance
Ah, on the floor and dance
Chorus
So get on the floor
And dance with me
I love the way you shake your thing
Especially

There's a chance for dancin'
All night long
There's a chance for groovin'
And it will be soothing
With a song

Dance across the floor
'Cause there's a chance for chances
And the chance is choosin'
And I sure would like just to groove with you

So get on the floor
And dance with me
I love the way you shake your thing
Especially
So get on the floor

No need for rejection
Determined to be
Gonna groove gonna move ya
Gonna say things to ya
Just wait and see

Then why don't you just
Dance across the floor
'Cause there's a chance for choices
And it's you I'm choosin'
And I sure would like just to groove with you
