The Written Lyrics

Take a look at the written version of the song. So, tab down to see the lyric we are sharing!

You got me runnin’, goin’ out of my mind
U got me thinkin’ that I’m wastin’ my time
Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down
You wanna stay out with your fancy friends
I’m tellin’ you, it’s got to be the end
Don’t bring me down
No, no, no, no, no
Ooh-ooh-hoo
I’ll tell you once more before I get off the floor
Don’t bring me down
Dont bring me down, groos
Don’t bring me down, groos
Dont bring me down, groos
I found the video for you! Have fun and see if you can find the strange word!!
