Shake The Stands, Rock The Floor: The THON 2017 Line Dance

0

Though tens of thousands take to the Bryce Jordan Center every year to dance for a cure, no two weekends are the same. This is due in part to the Line Dance, which is different every year and always a good representation of pop culture and news events from the past year. This year’s iteration is no exception, full of catchy songs and, of course, the Mannequin Challenge.

Without further ado, we give you the lyrics to the THON 2017 Line Dance.

Stretching

Nittany Lions bring that beat / For 46 we’re on our feet
Stand tall; Stretch it out / Time to show what THON’s about
FTK Let’s get loud / Crank that volume in the crowd
‘Round the world, we unite / All together in the fight

Verse 1: Penn State

Blue and White, forever true / Penn State grows, whoa that’s new
East begins its renovations / Canyon — new location
Dear Mike, We miss you most / Favorite mailman leaves the post
All in movement takes the lead / Lion’s Pantry seeks to feed
Target is the spot / LionPATH can we not?
Storm the field, scream and shout / Ohio State gets White’d Out
Wrestling, champs again / Nittany Lions win Big Ten
Smell the roses, bags are packed,
Penn State football, guess who’s back?

Chorus

Ignite! Electrify! / Come on raise your diamonds high!
One purpose for the kids / Hours dancing: 46
Shake the stands, rock the floor / Hear our little lions roar
Look around take it in / This fight, we will in

Verse 2: News/Sports

Aleppo seeks light in the dark / Orlando’s Pulse beats in our hearts
England peace out E.U / Hop a flight to Cuba too
Orcas will be swimming free / Space X in the galaxy
Election puts Trump on top / Obama’s out MIC DROP
Final 5 strong and bold / Phelps, Ledecky made of gold
Float like a butterfly sting like a bee / Muhammad’s Legacy
Mr. Palmer takes his final drive / Peyton Manning says goodbye
Great year to be a Cub / Curse is lifted, fly the dub

Pens lift the Stanley cup / Leicester City turns it up
Cleveland wins the rings / that kid from Akron still the King

Chorus

Ignite! Electrify! / Come on raise your diamonds high!
One purpose for the kids / Hours dancing: 46
Shake the stands, rock the floor / Hear our little lions roar
Look around take it in / This fight, we will in

Verse 3: Pop Culture

Snapchat makes us dogs and deer / “Stranger Things” have happened here
Rain drop, drop top / Where’s the closest PokeStop?
Gilmore Girls continue story / Splash around with Finding Dory
Leo gets his Oscar win / Harambe! Make a meme
“Closer” playing on repeat / Running man on that beat
Is it Broadway? is it school? / Hamilton makes history cool
Leia’s force will remain / Prince sings in the purple rain
Welcome back to life Jon Snow / Sorry if you didn’t know
WHY IS EVERYTHING SO LIT? / WHAT WAS THIS YEARS BIGGEST HIT?!

*Dance Break*

Chorus

Ignite! Electrify! / Come on raise your diamonds high!
One purpose for the kids / Hours dancing: 46
Shake the stands, rock the floor / Hear our little lions roar
Look around take it in / This fight, we will in

Verse 4: THON

BJC, now’s our chance / Show the families why we dance
Past and present volunteers / Four Diamonds 40 years
Penn State students show they care / One mission we all share
Diamonds guide the way / We will celebrate one day
Rise Up! Strength defines you / Wisdom support behind you
Courage to face unknowns / Honesty leads you home
Fireflies in the night / Today we spark tomorrow’s light
Boundaries broken, futures bright / Hope within, we ignite
