Cameo Word Up

Cameo Word Up

Yo, 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 mamma too
‘Cause they’re about to throw 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 your dance, do your dance, do your dance quick mamma
Come on baby, tell me what’s the word

Word up, everybody say
When you hear the call, you’ve 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
You try to put on those airs and act real cool
But ya got to realize that you’re acting like fools

If there’s music, we can use it, we need to dance
We don’t have the time for psychological romance
No romance, no romance, no romance for me, mamma
Come on baby, tell me what’s the word

Word up, everybody say
When you hear the call, you’ve got to get it underway

Low
Dial ‘L’ for Low
Low
[Incomprehensible]

Do your dance, do your dance
[Incomprehensible]
Do your dance, do do do do your dance, do your dance
Check it, baby

Do do do, do your dance, do your dance

Say like that
Say like that
[Incomprehensible]
Every body is gonna [Incomprehensible]

C’mon, all you people say

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain – Oran (Juice) Jones (1985)

Oran Juice Jones - The rain

Oran Juice Jones – The rain

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain; you were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

Tossing and turning another sleepless night the rain crashes against my window pane
Jumped into my car didn’t drive too far, that moment I knew I would never be the same. ‘Cause

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain; you were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.
I saw you (and him) walking in the rain; you were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

Now here you are begging to me to give our love another try
Girl I love you and I always will but darling right now I’ve got to say goodbye. ‘Cause

I saw you (and him) walking in the rain; you were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.
I saw you (and him) walking in the rain; you were holding hands and I’ll never be the same.

Hey, hey baby how ya doin’ come on in here
Got some hot chocolate on the stove waiting for you
Listen first things first let me hang up the coat
Yeah how was your day today? Did you miss me? You did? Yeah? I missed you too
I missed you so much I followed you today
That’s right now close your mouth ’cause you cold busted
That’s right, now sit down here, sit down here
I’m so upset with you I don’t know what to do
My first impulse was to run up on you and do a Rambo
Whip out the Jammy and flat blast both of you
But I ain’t wanna mess up this thirty-seven hundred dollar lynx coat
So instead I chilled — That’s right chilled
Then I went up the bank… took out every dime.
And then I went and canceled all those credit cards, yeah
All your charge accounts, yeah
I stuck you up for every piece of jewelry I ever bought you!
Yeah that’s right, everything, everything,
Don’t go lookin’ in that closet ’cause you ain’t got nuthin’ in there
Everything you came here with is packed up and waiting for you in the guest room.
That’s right, what was you thinking about, huh
What you trying to prove, huh? This is the Juice!
I gave you silk suits, Gucci handbags, blue diamonds.
I gave you things you couldn’t even pronounce, but now I can’t give you nothing but advice.
But you’re still young, yeah that’s right, you’re still young.
I hope you learn a valuable lesson from this, you know
And you’re gonna find somebody like me one of these days…
Until then, you know what you gotta do?
You gotta get on outta here with that alley-cat-coat-wearing, Hush-Puppy-shoe-wearing crumbcake I saw you with. Cause you dismissed!
That’s right, Silly rabbit, tricks are made for kids, don’t you know that.
You without me like corn flake without the milk!
This is my world. You’re just a squirrel trying to get a nut!
Now get on outta here. Scat!
Don’t touch that coat…
