"Everybody" is the first single and debut single overall off Madonna's debut self titled studio album Madonna.

Background

This is one of five songs from Madonna's debut album where she has a sole writing credit. The others are "Lucky Star," "Burning Up," "I Know It" and "Think of Me." Madonna insisted on making a music video for this song, albeit a low-budget one. She said: "If I didn't have a video, I don't think all the kids in the Midwest would know about me. It takes the place of touring. Everybody sees them everywhere. That really has a lot to do with the success of my album."

Aside from that, it also helped clear up the false assumption that she was an African-American artist, which her Sire label was pushing by not showing her on the cover art to the R&B-infused song.

Composition

The song starts with a heavily synthesized and spoken introduction, with Madonna taking a loud intake of breath. She displayed her bubblegum-pop like voice in the song, which was also doubletracked.

Lyrics

I know you've been waiting, yeah
I've been watching you, yeah
I know you wanna get up, yeah, come on

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Let the music take control
Find a groove and let yourself go
When the room begins to sway
You know what I'm trying to say

Come on, take a chance get up and start the dance
Let the DJ shake you, let the music take you

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Let your body take a ride
Feel the beat and step inside
Music makes the world go 'round
You can turn your troubles upside down

Gonna have to change your mind
Gonna leave your troubles behind
Your body gets the notion
When your feet can make the motion

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Dance and sing, get up and do your thing
Dance and sing, get up and do your thing
Dance and sing, get up and do your thing
Dance and sing, get up and do your thing

{I know you've been waiting, yeah, yeah, I see you sitting there
I've been watching you across the room, yeah, yeah
I've been watching you, I see you sitting there by yourself
Yeah, yeah, come on, come on, come on}

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Let the music take control
Find a groove and let yourself go
When the room begins to sway
You know what I'm trying to say

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing

Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
Everybody, come on, dance and sing
Everybody, get up and do your thing
