Lyrics Word Up!

Yoh pretty ladies around the world
Got a weird thing to show you so tell all the boys and girls
Tell your brother your sister and your mama too
'Cos we're about to go down and you'll know just what to do
Wave your hands in the air like you don't care
Glide by the people as they start to look and stare
Do you dance do your dance do your dance quick
Mama come on baby tell me what's the word
Ah word up everybody say when you hear the call you got to get it underway
Word up it's the code word no matter where you say it
You'll know that you'll be heard
Now all you sucker DJ's who think you're fly
There's got to be a reason and we know the reason why
Try to put on those airs and act real cool
But you got to realise that you're acting like fools
If there's music we can use it you're free to dance
We don't have no time for psychological romance
No romance no romance no romance for me
Mama come on baby tell me what's the word
Ah word up everybody say when you hear the call you got to get it underway, aw
Aw, dial l for low
Ah, hey hey
Won't you shot out all you people say
Ah ah, ah ah yeah
Can't you say
Hey, yeah, yeah
Yoh yoh yoh yoh yoh
Know the word know the word everyboby got to
Know the word they know the word
