What is Bono singing?

Bono has the greatest voice in the world, in my opinion. Sometimes I can't understand what he is singing though!


January 31, 1998 - San Paulo Brazil

Towards the end of Discotheque, he sings:

"its not hard to understand, just take your partner by the hand, ooooh ooh, oooh oooooh, ahhahahaaaa.."

then the music changes slightly (adam and larry especially), and Bono sings something really cool, but I can't understand a word!

then Bono breathes heavily and sings "oh oh oh oh staying alive staying alive"

Anyone have this mp3? Even better, anyone know what he is singing?

Hmm, it just can't seem to match it to any of the lyrics from "staying alive"... do you know what he is saying?

You can't match these to the lyrics of Staying Alive?

I think she's talking about the words she can't understand.

And I've never heard that particular boot, so unfortunately I can't help you. Good luck finding out, though.
