Slave 2 The Rhythm (with Justin Bieber):  

 

Hoo! Hoo! (Ohhh)
She dances in the sheets at night
She dances to his needs
She dances ’til he feels just right
Until he falls asleep

She dances at the crack of dawn
And quickly cooks his food
She can’t be late, can’t take too long
The kids must get to school

Chorus:
She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
She’s a slave to the rhythm
A slave to the rhythm of
A rhythm of love, a rhythm of love

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
She’s a slave to the rhythm
A slave to the rhythm of
A rhythm of love, a rhythm of love

She dances for the man at work
Who works her overtime
She can’t be rude and she says
“Sir, I must be home tonight”

She dances to the kitchen stove
Dinner is served by 9
He says his food’s an hour late
She must be out of her mind

Chorus:

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
The rhythm of love, the rhythm of love

She works so hard, just to make her way
For a man who just don’t appreciate
Although he takes her love’s in vain.
Still she could not stop,
Couldn’t break his chains

She danced the night
That they fell out
She swore she’d dance no more
But then she did, she dared not quit
As she ran out the door

She danced through the night
In fear of her life
She danced to a beat of her own
She let out a cry and
Swallowed her pride
She knew she was needed
Back home, home

Chorus:

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
A slave to the rhythm
A slave to the rhythm of
The rhythm of love
The rhythm of love

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
A slave to the rhythm
A slave to the rhythm of
The rhythm of love
The rhythm of love

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
A slave to the rhythm
A slave to the rhythm of
The rhythm of love
The rhythm of love

She’s a slave to the rhythm
She’s a slave to the rhythm of
