Yes

Positivity (Yes)
Have U had ur plus sign 2day?
Positivity (Yes)
Do we mark U present or do we mark U late?

Is that a good man
Walkin' down the street with that money n his hand?
Is that a good man?
Why do U dog him?
If that was ur father, tell me, would U dog him then?
Would U dog him?

Positivity (Yes)
Have U had ur plus sign 2day?
Positivity (Yes)
Ooh, do we mark U present or do we mark U late?

Is that all ur gold, where did it come from?
What did U have 2 do?
Can U sleep nights, do U dream straight up?
Or do U dream n W's?

Ooh, positivity (Yes)
Have U had ur plus sign 2day?
Positivity (Yes)
Yeah, do we mark U present or do we mark U late?
Na na na na na na, so so
Positivity (Yes)
Na na na na na na, so so

Can a boy who drops out of school at 13 years of age
Answer the Q of life and death when it slaps him n the face?
(Na na na na na na, so so)
Who's 2 blame when he's got no place 2 go
And all he's got is the sense 2 know
That a life of crime will help him beat U n the race?
Will help him beat U n the race

Positivity
Positivity (Yes)
Have U had ur plus sign 2day?
Positivity (Yes)
Oh, do we mark U present or do we mark U late?
Na na na na na na, so so

Oh, positivity (Say it) (Yes)
Have U had ur plus sign 2day? (Yes)
Positivity (Yes)
Ooh yes, do we mark U present or do we mark U late?
Na na na na na na, so so
Say it again
Na na na na na na, so so
Positivity (Yes)
(Na na na na na na, so so)

Wave ur hand 4 positivity, y'all
All the boys and all the girls
U r the new kings of the world
Shall the court sing 2gether?

N every man's life there will b a hang-up
A whirlwind designed 2 slow U down
It cuts like a knife and tries 2 get n U
This Spooky Electric sound
Give up if U want 2 and all is lost
Spooky Electric will b ur boss
Call People magazine, Rolling Stone
Call ur next of kin cuz ur ass is gone
He got a '57 mag with the price tag still on the side
Uh
Cuz when Spooky say dead, U better say died
Or U can fly high right by Spooky and all that he crawls 4
Spooky and all that he crawls 4
Don't kiss the beast
Love and honesty, peace and harmony (Positivity!)
Love and honesty, peace and harmony
Say hold on 2 ur soul, U got a long way 2 go
Sho'nuff
Gonna sho'nuff
Don't kiss the beast, b superior at least

Hold on 2 ur soul, y'all
Court, sing!
Hold on 2 ur soul, U got a long way 2 go
Hold on 2 ur soul
