(Mmm) Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor
(Mmm) Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor
Push (Yeah)
Push up on it (Good God)
Yeah, push
Yeah, whoo (Push it) (Push up on it)

Every time U get some, people wanna take it back
They rather see U on the run than see U get it like that
Every time they stop U, change up like a sock
Every time they try 2 clock U, tick more than they tock

I push (I push), don't U let 'em pull U down
Yeah, push (I push) until U get 2 higher ground
I push, U're never 2 young, U're never 2 old
Yeah, push, don't stop until U go

Did U ever stop 2 wonder why U put another down?
No man should asunder the joy that another man found
Maybe U thought the business U was worried wasn't ever filed n ur name
Maybe the cartridge U was playin' don't fit n ur video game

Push (I push), don't U let 'em pull U down
Yeah, push (I push) until U get 2 higher ground
I push, U're never 2 young, U're never 2 old
Yeah, push, don't stop until U go
Hey
Alright (I push)
Push (I...) (Push up on it)
Push
I push
Push, push, hey yeah
Push
U wanna push it now, yeah, push
(Push up on it) Push
Mm, yeah (I push)

Every time U get some, people wanna take it back (Push...)
They rather see U on the run than see U get it like that (Push)
Every time they stop U, U got 2 change up like a sock (Oh yeah) (Push)
Every time they try 2 clock U, tick more than they tock (Push)

I push higher (I push), don't U let 'em pull U down (Ooh)
Push (I push) until U get 2 higher ground
I push, U're never 2 young, U're never 2 old
Yeah, push, don't stop until U go
Oh yeah (Push) (I push)
Push (I push)
Good golly, sing (Push) (I push)
Push (I push)

Did U ever stop 2 wonder? (Push)
Yeah, I'ma push up on it
Yeah (Push...)
Tony (Yo)
C'mon and get on the mic (I'ma push up on it)
Tony (Yo, hmph)
Get on the mic (Yeah, I'ma push up on it)
Tony (Yo, huh)
Get on the mic (Slow down, I'ma push up on it)
Get on the mic, get on the mic

I push 4 a beat that is greasy, I'll dis a beat if it teases
Marks this down as I state it, I like my funk concentrated
The pop seems, hmmm, a little overrated
Guess U can tell what was stepped n?
Just the grease on the stage, oops, I just stepped n it (Push)
Circling as we vibe the full stride
Was the ride on a watered-down trip we could never get by (Push)
Fellas (G-get on the mic)
Check it out, here's what U gotta do
Got 2 step n the room with the mood (Push)
Never juicin' urself, just a competent attitude (Push)
Then me and U will get busy (Get on the mic)
Ur mouth'll drop open as U watch the slimmies walkin' (Push)
But U don't want the 1 who's jockin'
Cuz it's all about the clockin'
Step 1, step off 2 the dance floor (Push)
Push up on it, there U go, y'all, yeah (Push)

1, 1 2 3 (No) (Push...)
C'mon, push it (Push up on it) (Get on the mic)

Prince, get on the mic
(Get on it...) (Push up on it)
Prince, get on the mic (U don't want me on the mic)
(Get on it...) (Push up on it)
Prince, get on the mic (Naw man, U don't want me on the mic)
(Get on it...) (Push up on it) (Don't stop it) (Push)
Yeah... oh yeah (Push)

It's thunder when I'm on the mic (I push)
Daddy Pop's n the house and U're sure 2 like his diamonds
Sure 2 like his pearls (I push)
I'm good 2 cream every boy and girl
Cuz I'm strollin', steady hip-hop rock 'n' rollin'
I'm willing and able, horny pony
And I'm pumpin' 'em, I'm pumpin' 'em
I'm pump-pump-pump-pump-pumpin' 'em from Pakistan 2 Poland (Push)
Straight n2 ur town (Get on the mic...)
Snatchin' up kiddies like a circus clown (Get on the mic...) (Push)
Hahaha... (Get on the microphone)

Well, all U people out there, U better beware (Push)
Cuz they call me Rosie G. and I just don't care (Push)
I like 2 step all night long
A rappin' here, rappin' there, pushin' this song (Hey)
As the song gets hotter, it'll set U on fire (Get on the mic)
Like the lightenin' n the Bible, it takes U all higher
My mama said, "Girl, U know it ain't cool"
Said, "U don't wanna play by nobody's rules"
I said, "Mama, chill out and give me a break
Cuz I know I got just what it takes" (Get on the mic) (Push)
I said, "Mama, don't put me under pressure
I love U and I think U're fresh, I push!" (Get on the mic...)
Everybody, here we go, c'mon now and push if ya wanna (Push...)
C'mon... come push... it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!
Yeah, push it
Push!
