Lyrics of Oki-doki

1-as posmelis
Kiekviena diena alsuoja ritmu
Aš tuo pačiu keliu einu nauju žingsniu
Tai lyg šokis, pajausk - jausk šokį
Tai lyg šokis, kilk lengvai....
Netyla muzika – ją vienas girdžiu
Ir šokio kalbą moku, ko gi lauki tu?
Tai lyg šokis, pajausk - jausk šokį
Tai lyg šokis, kilk lengvai....

Šiandien tu jauties nekaip
Prisijunk ir bus kitaip
aš išmokysiu kaip reik...
Oooo...

Priedainis
Oki doki
Šoki kaip moki
Oki doki
Aaaa
Ir toliau bus geriau
Ir jauties vis linksmiau
Nestabdyk....

Oooo
Tai lyg šokis, kilk lengvai....

2-as posmelis
Šokis jungia - neišskirs niekada
Ir taip be žodžių gims graži nauja kalba
Ir nesvarbu kur būtum, čia ar svetur
Tave supras kas šoka, net neklaus „iš kur“?

Šiandien tu jauties nekaip
Prisijunk ir bus kitaip
aš išmokysiu kaip reik...
oooo

Kart. priedainis (2 kartus)
Oki doki
Šoki kaip moki
Oki doki
aaa
Ir toliau bus geriau
Ir jauties vis linksmiau
Nestabdyk....
oooo
Oki doki
Šoki kaip moki
Oki doki
aaa
Ir toliau bus geriau
Ir jauties vis linksmiau
Nestabdyk....
Ooo

Tai lyg šokis, pajausk - jausk šokį
Tai lyg šokis, kilk lengvai....
Tai lyg šokis, pajausk - jausk šokį
Tai lyg šokis, kilk lengvai....

Šiandien tu jauties nekaip
Prisijunk ir bus kitaip
aš išmokysiu kaip reik...
oooo

Kart. priedainis (2 kartus)

Lyrics by Ruta Lukoseviciute and Nojus Bartaska - Bartas

1-st column
Each day is filled with the rhythm
I am going the same way, but like the first time
It's like a dance, feel my dance
It's like a dance – fly easily...
The music goes non-stop, but I’m the only one who hears it
I know the dance language pretty well, what are you waiting for?
It’s like a dance, feel my dance
It's like a dance – fly easily...

Today you feel not very well
Join me – and you will feel much better
I‘m gonna teach you how to do this
Oooo

Refrain
Oki doki
Dance as you can
Oki doki
Aaa
And each time will be better
Since it‘s giving more fun
Just keep going on
Oooo
It's like a dance – fly easily...



2-nd column
The dance connects us
And will never take apart
This is how the new language is comming to the world - without any words
It does not matter where you are: here or somewhere
Everyone who dances will understand you without asking „where are you from“?

Today you feel not very well
Join me – and you will feel much better
I‘m gonna teach you how to do this
Oooo

Refrain (repeat 2 times)
Oki doki
Dance as you can
Oki doki
Aaa
And each time will be better
Since it‘s giving more fun
Just keep going on
Oooo

Oki doki
Dance as you can
Oki doki
Aaa
And each time will be better
Since it‘s giving more fun
Just keep going on
Oooo

It‘s like a dance, feel my dance
It's like a dance – fly easily...
It‘s like a dance, feel my dance
It's like a dance – fly easily...

Today you feel not very well
Join me – and you will feel much better
I‘m gonna teach you how to do this
Oooo

Refrain (repeat 2 times)
