Ow! Pick it up!
There's a bass guitar N this
Ow...!

Grenade launcher roars N a television sky
Tell me how many young brothers must die?
Dance on, dance on
Dance on, dance on

Little talk Johnny blew the big score
The gang nailed his feet 2 a wooden floor
Nuclear ban never stays N tune
They all know the words but the music is doomed
Everybody dance on, dance on, ooh
Dance on, dance on

Pick it up!
Ow!
Dance on, dance on
Yeah ooh! Ah ah ah
Dance on, dance on
Dance on, dance on

A bass guitar N spider webs longin' 4 the funk
Uzi gun takes its place N a wagon trunk
Get off me, punk! U ain't sexy
Stealin' ladies' purses, then settin' them aflame
M & M killers playin' Mickey Mouse games (Ooh)
Lord have mercy
Dance on, dance on
Dance on
Dance on, dance on
Dance on

It's time 4 new education
Former rules don't apply
We need a power structure that breeds production
Instead of jacks who vandalize
Detroit, what's happenin'?
What color is ur money 2day? (Get ur money straight) {repeated loop}
Keep that money straight (Everybody dance on) {repeated loop}
Everybody dance
Dance on
