lyrics

What Are You Doing on Nelly Furtado Day?

Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do?... [repeat throughout]

There's a very special time of year, [echo]
It's the first day of spring.
A celebration like no other!
And it makes the people sing!

What're you doin'...on Nelly Furtado Day?
What're you doin'...V-I-C-T-OR-I-A?
What're you doin'...on Nelly Furtado Day?
Everybody Britney dance! Whoo!

Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? etc...

Has Christmas lost its meaning?
Oh, is Jesus out of date?
Well there's a little Portuguese girl,
Giving reason to celebrate!

Ah, our boring national anthem...
It's irritating and absurd!
Children really should be learning,
To sing, I'm like a bird!

I'm like a bird!!

Yeah! Let's all be birds! I mean, I could be a seagull, you could be a crow, or...
Ok, let's sing...

What're you doin'...on Nelly Furtado Day?
What're you doin'...V-I-C-T-OR-I-A?
What're you doin'...on Nelly Furtado Day?
Everybody Britney dance! Whoo!
