No Doubt – Hella Good

The waves keep on crashing on me for some reason
But your love keeps on coming like a thunder bolt
Well, come here a little closer
‘Cause I wanna see you, baby, real close up
(Get over here, get over here)
You got me feelin’ hella good
So let’s just keep on dancin’
You hold me like you should
So I’m gonna keep on dancin’ (keep on dancin’)
The performance deserving of standing ovations
And who would have thought it’d be the two of us
(I don’t know, I didn’t think it was ever gonna happen)
So don’t wake me if I’m dreamin’
‘Cause I’m in the mood, come on and give it up
You got me feelin’ hella good
So let’s just keep on dancin’
You hold me like you should
So I’m gonna keep on dancin’ (keep on dancin’)
You got me feelin’ hella good
So let’s just keep on dancin’
You hold me like you should
So I’m gonna keep on dancin’ (keep on dancin’)
Ooh, yeah, yeah
Ooh, yeah, yeah
You got me feelin’ hella good
So let’s just keep on dancin’
You hold me like you should
So I’m gonna keep on dancin’ (keep on dancin’)
You got me feelin’ hella good
So let’s just keep on dancin’
You hold me like you should
So I’m gonna keep on dancin’ (keep on dancin’)
Keep on dancin’
Keep on dancin’
