Song Lyrics

Verse 1
Playing outside is so much fun,
Skipping in the sand out in the sun.
But don’t forget to protect your skin,
The part of the body that we’re living in, so…
Grab a bottle from the top of the shelf.
I’ll show you a way to protect yourself --
From New Jersey to Hawaii to the South of France,
Everyone’s doin’ the sunscreen dance.

Chorus

Sunscreen lotion, get the notion.
Sunscreen lotion, it’s a magic potion.
Sunscreen lotion, feel the motion.
Sunscreen lotion, causin’ a commotion.
Re-apply after you swim in the ocean --
We’re doin’ the Sunscreen dance.

Dance
OK, everybody; grab your sunscreen; here we go…
Rub it on your arms and rub it on your shoulders.
Rub it on your cheeks, your ears and your nose.
Don’t forget your lips, your tummy and your hips.
Glide your fingers from your legs to your toes.
We’re almost done, now, that’s a fact,
So grab a partner and rub it on your back -- Yeaaah.

Instrumental


Verse 2
The sun shines strongest from 10 to 4.
Put on a hat and shades as you head out the door.
And don’t forget that even on cloudy days,
You’re still exposed to ultraviolet rays.

Chorus
Sunscreen lotion, get the notion.
Sunscreen lotion, it’s a magic potion.
Sunscreen lotion, feel the motion.
Sunscreen lotion, causin’ a commotion.
Re-apply after you swim in the ocean.
We’re doin’ the Sunscreen dance.
We’re doin’ the Sunscreen dance.

Rub it in, save your skin.
Rub it in, save your skin.
[Repeat and fade…]
