Lyrics

"Ready to hop, 4 3 2 1"
A hop, a hop, a hop, a turn around and then.
A hop, a hop, a hop, now rollerblade on the spot!
"Ready 4 3 2 1"
Pump those arms and slide those feet,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.
Keep in time with the beat,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

"Ready to hop, 4 3 2 1"
A hop, a hop, a hop, a turn around and then.
A hop, a hop, a hop, now surf the waves on top!
"Ready 4 3 2 1"
Riding waves up and down,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.
It's obvious you're no clown,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

"Ready to hop, 4 3 2 1"
A hop, a hop, a hop, a turn around and then.
A hop, a hop, a hop, now ski the mountain top!
"Ready 4 3 2 1"
Skiing side to side,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.
Don't land on your backside,
8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1.

"Ready to hop, 4 3 2 1"
A hop, a hop, a hop, a turn around and then.
A hop, a hop, a hop, now stop, a stop, a stop!
