Gimme the bass, gimme the bass 1 time

Said the Table 2 the Chair, "U can hardly b aware
How I suffer from the heat and from chilblains on my feet"
"If we took a little walk, we might have a little talk
Pray let us take the air," said the Table 2 the Chair
(Can't nobody fuck with us)
Said the Chair un2 the Table, "Now U know we r not able
How foolishly U talk when U know we cannot walk"
Said the Table with a sigh, "It can do no harm 2 try
(Can't nobody fuck with us)
I've as many legs as U, why can't we walk on 2?"
So they both went slowly down and walked about the town
(Say can't nobody fuck with us)
With a cheerful bumpy sound as they toddled round and round
And everybody cried as they hastened 2 their side
(Can't nobody fuck with us)
"See! The Table and the Chair have come 2 take the air"
(Paris, y'all, say it y'all)
But n going down an alley 2 a castle n the valley
They completely lost their way and wandered all the day
Till, 2 see them safely back, they paid a Ducky-quack
And a Beetle, and a Mouse who took them 2 their house
Then they whispered 2 each other "O delightful little brother
What a lovely walk we've taken, let us dine on Beans and Bacon"
(Can't nobody fuck with us)
So the Ducky, and the leetle, Browny-Mousey and the Beetle
(Say it, y'all)
Dined, and danced upon their heads till they toddled 2 their beds
Good God, uh

What?
Ooh
Revolution break it way down low
Beautiful night, y'all say it
Oh, beautiful night, y'all say it
Say what, beautiful night, y'all say it
Yeah, beautiful night, y'all say it
Come on, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it
Say it loud, y'all
Say it loud, y'all
Miko, Miko, hit me n the back, fellas

Beautiful night, y'all say it
It's gonna b a beautiful night, y'all say it
Everybody feels alright, y'all say it
It's gonna b a beautiful night, y'all say it
Everybody, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it, oh-wee-oh, oh
Say it
Give me the horns again
Keep singin' y'all
Yeah
Everybody clap ur hands
Everybody clap ur hands
Everybody groove, come on, whoo!
Ooh
Confusion!
Yeah!
