Lyrics of Oki-doki

  • English
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)
