"Just Dance" is a song by American singer Lady Gaga for her debut album The Fame, featuring singer Colby O'Donis on vocals. Co-written by Gaga, its produer RedOne, and Akon, the song was released on April 08, 2008 as the album's first single. Conceived by Gaga as a "happy record", "Just Dance" received generally positive reviews by critics for its anthemic sound.

Upon release, "Just Dance" reached number one in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, Ireland, and the Netherlands. In addition, the single peaked in the top five in the Czech Republic, Hungary, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Spain, and Sweden. In the US in particular, "Just Dance" debuted at No. 76 on the Billboard Hot 100, then slowly rose up the chart before topping it in January 2009. "Just Dance" received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance Recording, but lost to the Daft Punk song "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger (Alive 2007)[1].

In a variant of the TV spot Happy Holidays From Sing used for the 2020 NBC Minions , Gunter plugs his Christmas-themed dance remix of this song into an ice rink's sound system as he and other characters from Sing skate and dance (In the original TV spot, Gunter plugged in a remix of "Groove Is in the Heart" instead).

GaGa
[Akon]
oh-oh, eh

[Verse 1:Lady Gaga]
I've had a little bit too much, much
[Akon]
oh, oh, oh-oh
[Lady Gaga]
All of the people start to rush (start to rush by)
A dizzy twister dance
Can't find my drink or man
Where are my keys?
[Akon]
oh, oh, oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus: Lady Gaga]
What's going on on the floor?
I love this record, baby, but I can't see straight anymore
Keep it cool
What's the name of this club?
I can't remember, but it's alright, alright

[Chorus]
Just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-da-dance, dance, dance
Just j-j-just dance

[Verse 2]
Wish I could shut my playboy mouth
[Akon]
oh, oh, oh-oh
[Lady Gaga]
How'd I turn my shirt inside out? (Inside out, right)
Control your poison, babe
Roses have thorns, they say
And we're all gettin' hosed tonight
[Akon]
oh, oh, oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus: Lady Gaga]
What's going on on the floor?
I love this record, baby, but I can't see straight anymore
Keep it cool
What's the name of this club?
I can't remember, but it's alright, alright

[Chorus]
Just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-da-dance, dance, dance
Just j-j-just dance

[Verse 3: Colby O'Donis]
When I come through on the dance floor, checking out that catalogue
Can't believe my eyes
So many women without a flaw
And I ain't gonna give it up
Steady, tryna pick it up, like a call
I'mma hit it, I'mma beat it and latch onto it until tomorrow, yeah
Shorty, I can see that you got so much energy
The way you twirling up them hips 'round and 'round
And there is no reason at all why you can't leave here with me
In the meantime, stay and let me watch you break it down

[Chorus: Lady Gaga]
And dance
Gonna be okay
[Akon]
Oh-oh
[Lady Gaga]
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
[Akon]
Ooh, yeah
[Lady Gaga]
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
[Akon]
Ooh, yeah
[Lady Gaga]
Gonna be okay
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
[Akon]
Ooh, yeah
[Lady Gaga]
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
[Akon]
Oh
[Lady Gaga]
Gonna be okay
Da-da-da-dance, dance, dance
[Akon]
Gonna be okay, yeah
[Lady Gaga]
Just j-j-just dance
[Akon]
Oh

[Interlude]
Incredible... amazing... music
[Lady Gaga]
Wooo!
Let's go!

[Bridge]
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, it's symphonic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, electronic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, it's symphonic
Half psychotic, sick, hypnotic, got my blueprint, electronic
Go!
Use your muscle, carve it out, work it, hustle
[Akon]
I got it, just stay close enough to get it on
[Lady Gaga]
Don't slow!
Drive it, clean it, Lysol, bleed it
Spend the last dough
[Akon]
I got it
[Lady Gaga]
In your pocko
[Akon]
I got it

[Chorus: Lady Gaga]
Just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Spin that record, babe
Da-da-doo-doot-n, just dance
Gonna be okay
Da-da-da-dance, dance, dance
