Hands in the Air lyrics

Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na

Put your hands in the air, like you don’t care
Put your hands in the air, like you don’t care

Now put your hands in the air, like you don’t care
Now put your hands in the air, like you don’t care

Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na

Shake your body to the left, feel the best
Now shake body to the right and you’ll feel alright

Shake your body to the left, feel the best
Now shake body to the right and you’ll feel alright

La la-la la-la la la la-la
La la-la la-la la la la-la
La la-la la-la la la la-la
La la-la la-la la la la-la

Clap your hands, clap your hands
Yeah clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands

Now clap your hands, clap your hands
Yeah clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands

Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
Na na-na na-na na na na-na
