Gravity Got No Hold On Me

Update:

I notice a lot of lyrics sites completely get the lyrics wrong. So here are some slightly more correct lyrics. Enunciation: it can be difficult in song, apparently.

In twenty-five seconds, you can dance
Feet on the ground, [hit the dunny ((May or may not be another phrase that starts with “hip” instead.))]
And if you believe, then you can fly
If a man can dream, then he can defy—
Hit it—
Gravity!

(trumpets and saxes)

Waitaminute, lookathere!
Gravity,
The big G,
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y,
Gravity—say it!—
Got no hold on me!
Hah!

On the third planet from the sun
I’ve been tryin’ to get the funky job done
Pull myself up and walk that funk, hah,
Don’t listen to the wrong honky-tonk
That said—

You’ve got no sense
You dance too fast
You burn all night
You’re never nice

Every man can dream he can defy
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y—

Gravity!
Big G!
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y
Gravity, hah!
Got no hold on me!
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y

Waitaminute!
In a small town or big city
There’s a fat cat here sittin’ pretty
Watch him break down or [cross back ((This is almost entirely unintelligible, but with punch.))]
Don’t mind me
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

We shake it up
We dance too fast

Do it!
Make it real
Make it last

Every man can dream that he can defy
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y!

(trumpet solo)

Yeah!
Uh!

Yeah!
Big-big-big-big G!

Unloose that juice!

(saxophone solo)

We don’t need that juice!

Unloose! ((Could also be “cut loose.”))

Hey!

Gravity, the big G,
Gravity
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y—
Say it—
Gravity, hah!
Got no hold on me!

Letmeexplain:
If you can dream, then you can fly
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y
If you can love, then you can defy
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y

Ge-ge-gravity,
Gravity
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y
Yeah!
Gravity!
Say it!
Get funky!
Gravity, yeah!
Everything!
G-R-A-V-I-T-Y

Gravity—
HAH!
