Lyrics:

if you got what they want

then you can tell them what to do

make them fall right in line

make them walk to the beat

show them how to move

change their clothes

let them know what to do

if you do

what they want

you to do

you can watch them [watch them]

copy you, copy you, copy you

make me dance, make me move

make me do the things

i can't do on my own

make me move, if i do

what they want [what they want]

me to do [me to do]

you can watch them [watch them]

copy you [copy you], copy you [copy you]

make me dance, make me move

make me do the things

i can't do on my own

make me move, if you do

what they want [what they want]

you to do [you to do]

you can watch them [watch them]

copy you [copy you], copy you [copy you]

if you got what they want

then you can tell them what to do

make them fall right in line
