This hilarious song is about an egyptian gerbil who won't give up on his dream of becoming a furry belly dancer. Although he faces many obstacles, "everyone laughed when I entered the class," he just wont give up on pursuing his passion. A great character building lesson and fun dance song.
LYRICS: I can feel my belly shaking!
Ever since I could think
B ack when I was pink I had a dream to belly dance
Some said I was crazy, even kinda lazy in my furry brown pants
My mama said “Has fur grown into your brain? That’s insane!”
B ut I couldn’t fake it
Cuz when I hear the drums and I feel my tummy turn
I just want to belly dance and shake it
He’s the best belly dancer this side of the Nile
When he shakes his belly everybody smiles (Repeat)
So don’t give up, no don’t give up! Don’t give up, no don’t give up
Everybody laughed when I entered the class, th
They said “Come on, gerbils don’t dance!”
I just shook my belly, moved like jelly to the beat
I never felt ever ever so complete
The teacher told me your rhythm’s too fast
Please get your tail out of my class
But I couldn’t stop what was inside of me
M y furry brown belly had to be free!
I worked hard to be the best across the desert I gyro
From the pyramids to Cairo
I got the greatest hips in the Kasbah scene
I keep it clean and the gerbils all scream
“He’s the best belly dancing rodent we’ve ever seen!”
Yeah, I fulfilled my dream!
Yo, I’m an Egyptian gerbil hero
A nd the kids all prance to my furry belly dance
