And they said, “Last call”
All I want is to see you twerk for me (let me see you twerk)
Bend your back around
Drop that booty to the ground
Just so long as you twerk for P
So darling darling, twerk for me
Oh, twerk for me (Twerk that, twerk that)
Oh, twerk now (Twerk that, twerk that, uh, twerk)
Twerk for me (Twerk that, twerk that, uh, work)
Twerk for me (Work that, twerk, twerk, work, twerk, ah, ah)’
