There you sit
All by yo'self
Everybody's dancin'
They can't a-help themselves

The mood is much too strong
You can't a-hold out longer
So get up
Don't fight it
(You got to feel it, feel it)

You better get on up
And get that groove
You know what, baby?
I like the way you move!

Ya do the Thing
Like you oughta be, alright
So don't fight it
Whoa, baby, yeah, yeah
(Feel it, feel it)

The way you, Jerk
The way you do The Twine
You're too much, baby
I'd like to make you mine

And after the dance
I'm gonna take you home
So don't fight it
Baby, you've got to feel
(Feel it, feel it)

Don't fight it, oh, no
(Feel it, feel it)

You got to feel
(Feel it, feel it)

You can't fight it
(Feel it, feel it)
No.

Was it the song you were looking for? Yes 🥳

Thank God I was able to hear this song through your website. It's been driving me crazy, just like an ear-worm. I remember two of my firieds and I singing it on stage (only the feel it chorus) with Gino Washington back in the 1960's. I was pretty sure it was by Wilson Picket but couldn't find it by just googling his name. I'll now be able to email those friends to ask if they remember when we sang it with Gino, so thank you so much.
