THON 2012 Line Dance Lyrics

Teach Line Dance

Lunge it out, one and all,
To the window, to the wall
Twist it here, twist it there, throw those arms up in the air
S-T-A-T-E Go State!

BJC lace up those kicks, THON is here for 46,
2012, time to dance, for the kids, for a chance.
Rumble, rumble, shake, shake, You get that text? you feel that quake?
B.K., Starbucks grab some grub, hope i’m mayor of the HUB.
Collegian turns 125, student section moves aside.
409, what a run! Thank you Joe for all you’ve done.
Candlelights, shining through, we stand together wearing blue.
We are… FTK! dancing to a brigher day!


Pump it lions, pump it up! Let me hear you roar!
Cancer – we’ll fight it! Dancing united!
Penn State, break it down, Diamonds Up, all around.
Shine your light, win this fight, FTK!

Will and Kate – wed at last! Kim and Kris, well that was fast!
Demi Moore, you got punk’d! Beyonce rubs her baby bump.
Raise your wand – lumos! Curtain falls.
Seventh “Potter” – nox! Dazzles all.
Once you find the perfect spot, the question is: to plank or not?
Playing friends, word by word, did you launch your angry bird?
Bridesmaids – what a mess! not in the street! Not in the dress!
Rebecca Black knows her days. Can you hear that Super Bass?

[sample of “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj]

Adele, center stage. Hunger Games, turn the page.
Is that a feather in your hair? Honey Badger he don’t care!
Dom says ‘come at me bro’ – ayoooo dancers, leggooo!


One decade past September: 9/11 we remember.
NASA shuttle is retired, Steve Jobs still inspires.
Joplin, Hershey –storms invade, Japanese get global aid.
Occupy nationwide, U.S. troops, home with pride.
Lockout almost wrecks the pros, let me see your Tebow pose
Pitt and Philly fans unite – MLB joins the fight.
Welcome Chambers and O’Brien, Blue and White, love ya Lions.
Penn State sports, are on top, wait for dubstep’s beat to drop.

Dance Break

Swat swat swat swat and lean.
Do the wop, wop, wop, wop – 46 we’re shufflin’
T to the H, O to the N, Barry’s in the dance again!


Families, kids, volunteers, celebrating 40 years
Hershey Center almost done, fighting ’til the battle’s won.
15,000 standing tall, for our heros big and small.
BJC, tell me this, why do we dance? for kids like Chris!
For courage, to help us dance, strength, a fighting chance
Honesty, our hearts are pure, wisdom to find a cure
FTK, THON will chant, we still dance for those who can’t
Four diamonds light the night, making every journey bright!

Here’s video of the first iteration of the 2012 Line Dance:
