Lyrics

Lapti Nek

Ab queck zenick fesi
Jup col im in na hiz jal, ooh.
Wa toc peg qui dos gee pif, aah.
Joh jarraz bas deg zorze zot.
Jer wih tuster mo vey
Qui neb be og ezen on
Wok lapti nek seb not van
Goc jarraz bas deg zorze zot
Lapti Nek
Rat a ran wim joct co jappi qaff
Lapti Nek
Kiv ba ha top wep jex pi va bep
Lapti Nek
Rat a ran wim joct co jappi qaff, Waaa0w!
Av queck zenick fesi
Jem wih tus-ter movey
Qui Neb be og ezen on
Wok lapti nek seb not van
Wah toc peg qui doz gee pif
Goc jarraz bas deg zorze zot
Lapti Nek
Rat a ran wim joct co jappi qaff
Lapti Nek
Kiv ba ha top wep jex pi va bep
Lapti Nek
Rat a ran wim joct co jappi qaff, Waaa0w!
Deg zorze zot
Jem wih tuster mo vey
Qui neb be og ezen on
Wok lapti nek seb not van
Goc jarraz bas deg zorze zot
Lapti nek

 

Lapti Nek (English lyrics by Joseph Williams)

Feel my body growing
My bones have started glowing
The time has come for showing
That I'll shape you up and work you out
My body feels excitin'
My soul is synthesisin'
My whole frame is jumpin'
I'm workin' out and havin' fun

Work it out, you've got to move your soul
Work it out, you've got to feel the heat
Work it out, you've got to move your soul

Feel my body growing
My body feels excitin'
My soul is synthesisin'
My whole frame is jumpin'
The time has come for showing
I'll shape you up and work you out

Work it out, you've got to move your soul
Work it out, you've got to feel the heat
Work it out, you've got to move your soul


In the Special Edition of Return of the Jedi (1997), "Lapti Nek" was replaced with "Jedi Rocks", a non-Williams composition.
