As I walked through the door A DJ packed the floor The jam felt good to me The bass it had a groove It made my body move The drummer played funk ya see So don't even mind if I'm losing control when I dance, I've found the chance To just close my eyes and leave all of my cares behind Cause tonight everything's all right Step out, go ahead get your groove on, just feel it. Know you feel it. Because when you step out, Once the beat moves your feet, You can't stop it, you can't stop it, you can't stop it, NO! NO! Got to get in the door, got to get in the floor, Boy I want to get my groove on. Only once, maybe twice, gotta chance, wanna dance Yeah, I got to get my groove on!!

All these early designs depicted a white nun, as opposed to the final version of Jessica.
