Snare drum pounds on the 2 and 4
All the party people get on the floor
All the party people get on the floor
Bass

Glam slam escape
Glam slam, free ur mind from this rat race
Glam slam escape!

15 minutes ain't long enough
2 b out ur mind n a world so tough
If U wanna escape and truly b
All the crack n Compton won't set U free, c'mon

Glam slam (Slammin')
Free ur mind from this rat race
Glam slam escape!

U got 2 b urself, U got 2 b aware
Cuz the gangster man, hmph, he don't give a care (Don't care)
Whether U live or whether U die
Glam slam escape, U got 2 give it a try, c'mon (Ooh!)

Glam slam (Oh)
Free ur mind from this rat race
Glam slam escape! (Slammin')
Yeah
Party, baby {repeat}
Ooh (Where did I hear that b4?) (Party, baby...)
Glam slam escape!

Everybody trippin' on the party bass (Yeah)
However high U get is a matter of taste (Party, baby...)
Winner takes all n the hardest race (Yes it does)
Don't get on the scale if U ain't got the weight
It's more hard 2 love than it is 2 hate
Say, it's more hard 2 love than it is 2 hate
C'mon, it's more hard 2 love than it is 2 hate (Yeah)
Yeah, it's more hard 2 love than it is 2 hate (Ooh)
1 more, more hard 2 love than it is 2 hate (Yeah)
Escape!
Glam slam
Ow!

Glam slam, free ur mind from this rat race
Glam slam escape!
Escape!

Don't ask 4 sex, he ain't got the time
Keep ur body, he wants ur mind
Glam slam slam slam (Keep ur body, he wants ur mind)
Keep ur body, keep ur body
Escape

Glam slam, free ur mind from this rat race
Glam slam escape!

Party, baby, party, baby
Bass, as an olympic, and no, it's not free (Play!)
Party, baby, party, baby
Everybody say it (Play!)
Come on (Play!)
Slammin', slammin', slammin! (Play! Play!) (Glam slam)
Ooh

Escape! {repeat}
Trancend the physical
Glam slam
Keep ur body, he wants ur mind
No punks allowed!
Musical crucifixion goin' down... (Glam slam)
Ah yeah!
Glam slam
